A Microtubule-Myelination Connection. uri icon


  • Microtubules are critical for the extension of oligodendrocyte processes and myelin deposition, yet our knowledge of their microtubule biogenesis is limited. In this issue of Cell, Fu et al. (2019) identify an oligodendrocyte-enriched microtubule regulator that promotes microtubule growth from Golgi outposts and controls myelin sheath elongation, linking microtubule cytoarchitecture and myelination in the CNS.
