The centrosome is the principal microtubule-organizing center in mammalian cells. Until recently, the centrosome could only be studied at the ultrastructural level and defined as a functional entity. However, during the past decade a number of clever experimental strategies have been used to identify numerous molecular components of the centrosome. The identification of biochemical subunits of the centrosome complex has allowed the centrosome to be investigated in much more detail, resulting in… CONTINUE READING
