- Cellular allometry: the spindle in development and inheritanceDaniel J Needleman
Harvard University, 52 Oxford Street, Room 365 10, Cambridge, MA 02138, USA
Curr Biol 19:R846-7. 2009..Recent studies have demonstrated a correlation between cell size and the behaviors of the cytoskeletal division machinery during embryogenesis, giving insight into how a core cellular process is modulated over the course of development...
- Fast microtubule dynamics in meiotic spindles measured by single molecule imaging: evidence that the spindle environment does not stabilize microtubulesDaniel J Needleman
School of Engineering and Applied Sciences, Molecular and Cellular Biology, Harvard University, Cambridge, MA 02138, USA
Mol Biol Cell 21:323-33. 2010..It follows that the key to understanding spindle morphogenesis will be to elucidate how nucleation is spatially controlled...
- Mitosis: taking the measure of spindle lengthDaniel J Needleman
Harvard University, Cambridge, MA 02138, USA
Curr Biol 20:R359-60. 2010..Recent studies have investigated the mechanisms responsible for setting spindle length - and how spindle length changes over the course of development...
