BACKGROUND The formation of a bipolar spindle is an essential step during cell division. Bipolar spindle assembly is driven by the highly conserved microtubule motor Eg5 (kinesin-5), which can slide antiparallel microtubules apart to drive centrosome separation. However, it is currently unclear whether and how additional motors can contribute to centrosome… CONTINUE READING
