    Katharina Ribbeck
    Systems Biology, Harvard Medical School, Boston, Massachusetts 02115, USA
    Curr Biol 16:R923-5. 2006
    ..A recent study using electron tomography has found that katanin stimulates the production of microtubules in the meiotic spindles of Caenorhabditis elegans oocytes...
  2. ncbi request reprint A role for NuSAP in linking microtubules to mitotic chromosomes
    Katharina Ribbeck
    European Molecular Biology Laboratory, Meyerhofstrasse 1, D 69117 Heidelberg, Germany
    Curr Biol 17:230-6. 2007
    ..We propose that the presence of MT binding agents such as NuSAP, which can be directly immobilized on chromatin, are critical for targeting MT production to vertebrate chromosomes during spindle self-organization...
  3. pmc NuSAP, a mitotic RanGTP target that stabilizes and cross-links microtubules
    Katharina Ribbeck
    European Molecular Biology Laboratory, D 69117 Heidelberg, Germany
    Mol Biol Cell 17:2646-60. 2006
    ..Once activated, NuSAP may aid to maintain spindle integrity by stabilizing and cross-linking microtubules around chromatin...
  4. pmc Self-organization of anastral spindles by synergy of dynamic instability, autocatalytic microtubule production, and a spatial signaling gradient
    Thomas Clausen
    European Molecular Biology Laboratory, Heidelberg, Germany
    PLoS ONE 2:e244. 2007
    ..The mechanism proposed here can generate and maintain a dissipative MT super-structure within a RanGTP gradient...

    Tim Raemaekers
    Laboratory for Experimental Medicine and Endocrinology, Katholieke Universiteit Leuven, Leuven, Belgium
    J Cell Biol 162:1017-29. 2003
    ..In addition, many NuSAP-depleted interphase cells had deformed nuclei. Both overexpression and knockdown of NuSAP impaired cell proliferation. These results suggest a crucial role for NuSAP in spindle microtubule organization...

    ..Thus, Crm1 is a critical Ran-GTP effector for mitotic spindle assembly and function in somatic cells...
  8. pmc Characterization of Ran-driven cargo transport and the RanGTPase system by kinetic measurements and computer simulation
    Dirk Gorlich
    ZMBH, INF 282, 69120 Heidelberg, Germany
    EMBO J 22:1088-100. 2003
    ..This indicates that RanGTP gradients can provide positional information for mitotic spindle and NE assembly in early embryonic cells, but hardly any in small somatic cells...
