ve not been able to identify what it's doing. We have some ideas. We think it might be affecting the structure of the microtubule itself, which could then directly affect how the motors walk on them."

Ligon said the modifications are always changing in the cell, depending upon what the cell is doing.

"We think that suggests they are somehow controlling traffic," Ligon said. "So, we want to alter these road signs and ask 'does that affect whether the traffic gets to the right place?'"

The grant, titled "Remodeling the Microtubule Cytoskeleton for Polarized Treatment," will fund research through 2017. Ligon is a member of the Center for Biotechnology and Interdisciplinary Studies and the Department of Biology at Rensselaer.
