Liposome finding implies electrical effect on cell development

... through optical and scanning electron microscopy, microtubules were observed to immediately form and extend from the phospholipid balloon, like a seed putting forth a stalk or root. Hayes believes that the phenomena may have significant implications for both cellular biology and for nanotechnology. "This findin...

Insects that produce males from unfertilized eggs reveal a surprising cellular feat

...rchestrate cell division, building an apparatus of microtubules called the mitotic spindle, which pulls apart the duplicated chromosomes so that each of the two daughter cells gets a complete set of chromosomes.

Discovery of agile molecular motors could aid in treating motor neuron diseases

...walking across it, but in the cell it's different: microtubules are packed together, with proteins studded along them, and cellular organelles and mitochondria are crammed in. The motor needs to maneuver around those 'obstructions.'" Goldman and Holzbaur suggest that the ability of the dynein-dynactin motor to mo...
