Abstract

Microtubule-based motility in the cell is directly associated with changes in microtubule numbers through nucleation and growth and shrinkage of the polymer from the ends. Recent analysis of spindle pole bodies and kinetochores in yeast reveal how the cell builds specialized structures for association with the ends of microtubules.
