Mitochondrial positioning in fission yeast is driven by association with dynamic microtubules and mitotic spindle poles.

Abstract

Microtubules mediate mitochondrial distribution in the yeast Schizosaccharomyces pombe and many higher eukaryotic cells. In higher eukaryotes, kinesin motor proteins have been shown to transport mitochondria along microtubules, but the nature of the mitochondria-microtubule interactions in S. pombe has not been explored. By time lapse, total internal… (More)
