  • A spindle matrix has long been proposed to provide structural support for counterbalancing force production and a substrate for essential mitotic factors. For years the molecular identity of such a structure remained elusive. Recently a complex of nuclear proteins that reorganize into a spindle-like structure during prophase through metaphase that shows characteristics of a spindle matrix has been identified in Drosophila. We review how these results support the concept of a spindle matrix and… CONTINUE READING
