Abstract:SxIP-iLID is a novel optogenetic tool designed to assess the temporal role of proteins on microtubule dynamics. The authors establish that optogenetic cross-linking of microtubule and actin networks decreases MT growth velocities and increases the cell area void of microtubules.
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 of Drug Abuse of the National Institutes of Health.
