Microtubule release and capture in epithelial cells.

Many differentiated cells including polarised epithelial cells display a non-radial, apico-basal microtubule array. In some cells the centrosome disassembles and new nucleating sites are created at more appropriate locations. In others the centrosome remains, but relatively few microtubules radiate from it's immediate environs. Instead, the majority of the… CONTINUE READING
