The Spindle's Model Behavior
The Rockefeller University Press
Dynamic microtubules assemble into a steady state bipolar spindle structure but precisely how this is achieved is unclear. Loughlin et al. develop a computational model that predicts how a few key activities organize microtubules in Xenopus meiotic spindles. This biosights episode presents the paper by Loughlin et al. from the December 27, 2010 issue of The Journal of Cell Biology, and includes an interview with author François Nédélec (EMBL, Heidelberg, Germany).
