Meiosis: organizing microtubule organizers

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review

Abstract / Description of output

During meiosis in fission yeast, the zygote nucleus undergoes microtubule-driven oscillatory movements that ultimately serve to promote genetic recombination. An essential component of this is a meiosis-specific consolidation of microtubule-organizing activity to the the spindle pole body, driven by the novel coiled-coil protein mcp6/hrs1p.
