Entry into meiosis is marked by remodeling of the cortical microtubule system and shaping of the cytoplasm.
Hornworts have been used as a model system (Brown & Lemmon, 1990, 1993, 1997) for describing the development and function of the QMS in monoplastidic sporogenesis where it can be seen that the nucleus delays division while the cytoplasm, as evidenced by plastid and microtubule behavior, prepares for two divisions and anticipates the eventual cytokinesis into a tetrad.
Instead of having kinesin move around, the scientists anchored the molecules so that their heads would propel free microtubules through the channels, explains biophysicist Cees Dekker.
Living cells maintain a high degree of functional and structural organization which largely depends on a highly dynamic scaffold, the cytoskeleton, with microtubules (MTs) and actin filaments as the central elements.
Maytansine derivatives and metabolites of antibody-maytansinoid conjugates inhibit microtubule polymerization and strongly suppress microtubule dynamics" (abstract #1406).
Decoding and stimulating microtubules could enable therapeutic intervention in a host of pathological processes, for example Alzheimer's disease in which microtubule disruption plays a key role, and brain injury in which microtubule activities can repair neurons and synapses.
Drugs have been analyzed by segments such as angiogenesis inhibitor, EGFR inhibitor, kinase inhibitor, microtubule stabilizer, folate antimetabolites, and PD-1/PD-L1 inhibitor.
We will focus on regulatory interactions at dynamic microtubule plus ends, which play an essential role in cell division, polarization, and migration.
The study describes a number of routes to the formation of a microtubule spindle - the tracks along which DNA moves when a cell divides in order to make two genetically identical cells.
A physical technique such as cutting was desirable, as it did not affect properties of the media surrounding the spindles during direct manipulations of spindle size and shape besides microtubule amount and density.
Unlike animal cells, where microtubules are nucleated at discrete centriole containing centrosomes, plant cells produced a bewildering assortment of microtubule arrays in the absence of centrosomes.
In their lab dish experiments with brain cells on silicone, the researchers were able to minimize microtubule damage with a drug called Taxol, commonly used to treat cancer.
