Models and mechanisms of regenerative biology across phylogeny : introduction to a virtual symposium in The Biological Bulletin
Olds, James L.
MetadataShow full item record
This virtual symposium issue of The Biological Bulletin celebrates a major milestone for our publisher, The Marine Biological Laboratory, as it opens the new Eugene Bell Center for Regenerative Biology and Tissue Engineering on its Woods Hole campus. As with recent virtual symposia published by the journal, the current issue brings together a set of invited reviews, original research reports, and a position paper that offers a coherent and current window into some of the major contemporary trends in animal regeneration research.

Roles of polymerization dynamics, opposed motors, and a tensile element in governing the length of Xenopus extract meiotic spindles Mitchison, Timothy J.; Maddox, P.; Gaetz, J.; Groen, Aaron C.; Shirasu, M.; Desai, A.; Salmon, Edward D.; Kapoor, Tarun M. (American Society for Cell Biology, 2005-03-23)Metaphase spindles assemble to a steady state in length by mechanisms that involve microtubule dynamics and motor proteins, but they are incompletely understood. We found that Xenopus extract spindles recapitulate the ...
Tirnauer, Jennifer S.; Salmon, Edward D.; Mitchison, Timothy J. (American Society for Cell Biology, 2004-02-06)Microtubule dynamics underlie spindle assembly, yet we do not know how the spindle environment affects these dynamics. We developed methods for measuring two key parameters of microtubule plus-end dynamic instability in ...
Mitchison, Timothy J.; Maddox, P.; Groen, Aaron C.; Cameron, L.; Perlman, Z.; Ohi, Ryoma; Desai, A.; Salmon, Edward D.; Kapoor, Tarun M. (American Society for Cell Biology, 2004-09-22)We investigated the mechanism by which meiotic spindles become bipolar and the correlation between bipolarity and poleward flux, using Xenopus egg extracts. By speckle microscopy and computational alignment, we find that ...
