      Conti, Luca; Limon, Agenor; Palma, Eleonora; Miledi, Ricardo (Marine Biological Laboratory, 2013-02-01)
      The squid has been the most studied cephalopod, and it has served as a very useful model for investigating the events associated with nerve impulse generation and synaptic transmission. While the physiology of squid giant ...
    • Microtubule dynamics in cell division : exploring living cells with polarized light microscopy 

      Inoue, Shinya (2008-04-11)
      This Perspective is an account of my early experience while I studied the dynamic organization and behavior of the mitotic spindle and its submicroscopic filaments using polarized light microscopy. The birefringence of ...
    • Microtubule plus-end dynamics in Xenopus egg extract spindles 

      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 ...
    • Microtubules do not promote mitotic slippage when the spindle assembly checkpoint cannot be satisfied 

      Brito, Daniela A.; Yang, Zhenye; Rieder, Conly L. (Rockefeller University Press, 2008-08-18)
      When the spindle assembly checkpoint (SAC) cannot be satisfied, cells exit mitosis via mitotic slippage. In microtubule (MT) poisons, slippage requires cyclin B proteolysis, and it appears to be accelerated in drug ...
    • Microwave radar cross sections and Doppler velocities measured in the surf zone 

      Farquharson, Gordon; Frasier, Stephen J.; Raubenheimer, Britt; Elgar, Steve (American Geophysical Union, 2005-12-23)
      The relationship between microwave imaging radar measurements of fluid velocities in the surf zone and shoaling, breaking, and broken waves is studied with field observations. Normalized radar cross section (NRCS) and ...
