Mechanisms for maintaining microtubule bundles.

Abstract

The dynamics of microtubules (MTs) are crucial to many of their functions. Certain MT structures, such as the mitotic spindle apparatus, exhibit high MT turnover yet maintain their mass stably through long periods of time. Here, we highlight what are emerging as two important mechanisms for maintaining MT bundles: the first, MT nucleation from pre-existing… (More)
