  • BACKGROUND Many types of differentiated eukaryotic cells display microtubule distributions consistent with nucleation from noncentrosomal intracellular microtubule organizing centers (MTOCs), although such structures remain poorly characterized. In fission yeast, two types of MTOCs exist in addition to the spindle pole body, the yeast centrosome equivalent. These are the equatorial MTOC, which nucleates microtubules from the cell division site at the end of mitosis, and interphase MTOCs, which… CONTINUE READING
