Mechanochemical Cell Biology

EBcomets Plain English CELLULAR FIREWORKS - These comets show the progress of microtubule construction sites inside living cells. Human cells make three related proteins that surf on the tips of growing microtubules to form such comets. Work from the Straube lab shows that these comet proteins prefer binding to different features at microtubule construction sites and thus form comets that are staggered behind each other.
