The elasticity of motor-microtubule bundles and shape of the mitotic spindle.


In the process of cell division, chromosomes are segregated by mitotic spindles -- bipolar microtubule arrays that have a characteristic fusiform shape. Mitotic spindle function is based on motor-generated forces of hundreds of piconewtons. These forces have to deform the spindle, yet the role of microtubule elastic deformations in the spindle remains… (More)
