Microtubule Dynamics: If You Need a Shrink Try stathmin/Op18

Curr Biol. 1998 Mar 12;8(6):R212-4. doi: 10.1016/s0960-9822(98)70128-9.


Recent studies show that stathmin/Op18 may be an important physiological regulator of microtubule dynamics; the activity of stathmin/Op18 is controlled by the actions of several signalling pathways, allowing it to play a central role in coordinating microtubule behaviour.
