Sea urchin gametes and early embryos have proven to be a useful system for studying the roles of microtubule (MT)-associated motors in axonemal motility and cytoplasmic MT-based movements in dividing cells. In this brief article, known and potential sea urchin MT motors are listed and their possible biological functions are discussed.
