Cell polarity: a new mod(e) of anchoring. Academic Article uri icon


  • Microtubules play a central role in the establishment of cell polarity by directing the transport of polarity determinants to their site of action. Recent work has revealed a novel membrane-anchoring mechanism which complements the microtubule transport of the fission yeast polarity determinant tea1p to ensure its retention at the cell tip.
