Tea2p kinesin is involved in spatial microtubule organization by transporting tip1p on microtubules.

The positioning of growth sites in fission yeast cells is mediated by spatially controlled microtubule dynamics brought about by tip1p, a CLIP-170-like protein, which is localized at the microtubule tips and guides them to the cell ends. The kinesin tea2p is also located at microtubule tips and affects microtubule dynamics. Here we show that tea2p interacts… (More)
