biosights: October 1, 2012 - Cortical dynein puts the spindle in its place
By: JCB The position of the mitotic spindle is controlled by the microtubule-based motor dynein and a ternary complex of the proteins NuMA, LGN, and Ga. Kotak et al. demonstrate that the ternary complex's primary function is to localize dynein to the cell cortex and that cortical dynein is sufficient to position the mitotic spindle in HeLa cells. This biosights episode presents the paper by Kotak et al. from the October 1, 2012, issue of The Journal of Cell Biology and includes an interview with
