Abstract / Description:Antiparallel overlap of microtubules is central to the morphogenesis of bipolar mitotic spindles. How does this overlap arise, and how is it maintained? A recent theoretical study uses computer simulations to investigate whether motor protein complexes can achieve this task. The "virtual" results reveal that a mixed polarity motor complex is needed to do the job.
