Cytoplasmic extracts from unfertilized
eggs have made important contributions to our understanding of microtubule dynamics, spindle assembly, and scaling. Until recently, these
studies relied on the use of heterologous tubulin. This protocol allows for the purification of physiologically relevant
tubulins in milligram yield, which are a complex mixture of isoforms with various post-translational mod…
scite is a Brooklyn-based startup that helps researchers better discover and evaluate scientific articles through Smart Citations–citations that display the context of the citation and describe whether the article provides supporting or contrasting evidence. scite is used by researchers from dozens of countries and is funded in part by the National Science Foundation and the National Institute on Drug Abuse of the National Institutes of Health.
