Fish melanophore cells aggregate pigment granules at the centre or redisperse them throughout the cytoplasm. The granules move along radial microtubules by means of molecular motors1–3. Cytoplasmic fragments of melanophores organize a radial array of microtubules and aggregate pigment at its centre4–7. Here we report self-centring in microsurgically produced cytoplasmic fragments of black tetra melanophores. We observed rapid (10 min) formation of a radial microtubule array after stimulation of… CONTINUE READING
