Cell Biology: Microtubule Collisions to the Rescue

Research output: Contribution to journalShort surveypeer-review


The proper regulation of microtubule lengths is fundamental to their cellular function. New work now reports that the collision of a growing microtubule end with another object, such as a microtubule, can contribute to the regulation of microtubule lengths by leaving behind damage that ultimately acts to stabilize the microtubule network.
