Kinetochores: orchestrating the chromosomal minuet

Curr Biol. 2010 Jun 22;20(12):R522-5. doi: 10.1016/j.cub.2010.05.017.


When it comes to microtubules, kinetochores leave nothing to chance. Recent studies have provided insight into an amazingly choreographed dance between the proteins in the kinetochore and their substrate and power source--the microtubule.
