Manipulating a single microtubule by light

A cell is basically a miniature factory, which contains a large number of dedicated protein machines to perform various mechanical functions. For example kinesin is a linear motor protein which transport cargos such as organelles, chromosomes and

New coordination between F-actin and microtubules

Cells maintain vesicles transportation, cell migration, cell polarity, mitosis, cell shape and even cell signaling through cytoskeleton, which is the most conservative and essential structures in diverse organism. F-actin and microtubule, two components of the cytoskeleton, have
