Microtubules are fundamental for the spatial organization and motility of neurons and other cells. In a recent article in Cell, the Flanagan Lab identified a novel function for the microtubule plus-end protein Adenomatous polyposis coli (APC), a scaffold protein known to be important in biology and disease. They found that APC is an RNA- ...Read more >>
A systematic quantitative analysis of temporal changes in host and viral proteins throughout the course of a productive infection could provide dynamic insights into virus-host interaction. In a recent article in Cell, the Gygi Lab describes a novel proteomic technique, ‘quantitative temporal viromics’ (QTV), employing multiplexed tandem ...Read more >>
Cytoplasmic dynein is the major motor protein that transports cargoes toward the minus end of microtubules. In most cell types, this corresponds to movement toward the cell interior. However, if dynein only moves to the minus end of microtubules, a problem arises: how would dynein initially reach the plus end of the microtubule and the outskirts of the cell, where it collects cargoes? In a recent eLIFE article, ...Read more >>
