  • Goshima, Gohta; Wollman, Roy; Stuurman, Nico; Scholey, Jonathan M.; Vale, Ronald D. (2005-09-30)
    The pole-to-pole distance of the metaphase spindle is reasonably constant in a given cell type; in the case of vertebrate female oocytes, this steady state length can be maintained for substantial lengths of time, during ...
  • Pasapera, Ana M.; Schneider, Ian C.; Rericha, Erin; Schlaepfer, David D.; Waterman, Clare M. (Rockefeller University Press, 2010-03-22)
    Focal adhesions (FAs) are mechanosensitive adhesion and signaling complexes that grow and change composition in response to myosin II–mediated cytoskeletal tension in a process known as FA maturation. To understand ...
  • Li, Wenjing; Moriwaki, Takashi; Tani, Tomomi; Watanabe, Takashi; Kaibuchi, Kozo; Goshima, Gohta (Rockefeller University Press, 2012-11-26)
    Dynamic microtubules (MTs) are essential for various intracellular events, such as mitosis. In Drosophila melanogaster S2 cells, three MT tip-localizing proteins, Msps/XMAP215, EB1, and Sentin (an EB1 cargo protein), have ...
  • Mitchison, Timothy J.; Nguyen, Phuong; Coughlin, Margaret; Groen, Aaron C. (American Society for Cell Biology, 2013-03-20)
    Previous study of self-organization of Taxol-stabilized microtubules into asters in Xenopus meiotic extracts revealed motor-dependent organizational mechanisms in the spindle. We revisit this approach using clarified cytosol ...
  • The, Lydia; Wallace, Michael L.; Chen, Christopher H.; Chorev, Edith; Brecht, Michael (Society for Neuroscience, 2013-03-13)
    Although the neurobiology of rodent facial whiskers has been studied intensively, little is known about sensing in other vibrissae. Here we describe the under-investigated submandibular “whisker trident” on the rat's chin. ...
  • Belin, Brittany J.; Cimini, Beth A.; Blackburn, Elizabeth H.; Mullins, R. Dyche (American Society for Cell Biology, 2013-02-27)
    In addition to its long-studied presence in the cytoplasm, actin is also found in the nuclei of eukaryotic cells. The function and form (monomer, filament, or noncanonical oligomer) of nuclear actin are hotly debated, and ...
