Microtubules (MTs) are the most prominent structural elements of the spindle apparatus. Consequently they are generally thought to a play a role in the processes of spindle elongation and the autonomous chromosome movements towards the spindle poles in anaphase. Recent electron microscopic studies have confirmed that dynamic changes in MT arrangement and distribution occur during chromosome movement. Furthermore, the anaphase movement seems to be accompanied by a decrease of the overall spindle… CONTINUE READING
