Microtubule array organization and function

The microtubule cytoskeleton performs organizational and mechanical functions in cell and tissue morphogenesis, cell signalling and cell division. Higher plants create highly organized interphase microtubule arrays without benefit of centralized organizing complexes such as centrosomes or spindle pole bodies. A major project in the lab is to understand how these acentrosomal arrays are organized and how they function to determine cell shape and patterns of cell division.
