Abstract

Dis1/XMAP215 family microtubule-binding proteins are essential for cell division in animals, plants and fungi, suggesting a conserved cell-division mechanism used by all eukaryotes. Two new studies, however, reveal that different family members can have very different effects on microtubule dynamics.
