Abstract

Successful mitosis requires coordinated activities of microtubules and numerous associated proteins. A recent study implicates the microtubule-associated protein MAST/Orbit in a surprisingly wide array of mitotic activities, ranging from maintaining mitotic spindle bipolarity to tethering chromosomes to the ends of microtubules.
