Thesis Title
Acentrosomal Organization of the Microtubule Cytoskeleton during mitotic spindle assembly and disassembly
Abstract
Cytoskeleton microtubules undergo a reversible metamorphosis as cells enter and exit mitosis to build a transient mitotic spindle required for chromosome segregation. Centrosomes play a dominant but dispensable role in microtubule...
