    Curr Biol 24:R116-8. 2014
    ..The spindle is a micron-scale structure that assembles from nanometer-sized tubulin building blocks. How does the spindle know what size to be? Changes in cytoplasmic volume are shown to be sufficient to modulate the size of the spindle...
  2. pmc Deformations within moving kinetochores reveal different sites of active and passive force generation
    Sophie Dumont
    Department of Systems Biology, Harvard Medical School, Boston, MA 02115, USA
    Science 337:355-8. 2012
    ..Together, these interfaces allow persistent attachment with intermittent active force generation...

    Sophie Dumont
    Department of Systems Biology, Harvard Medical School, Boston, MA 02115, USA
    Curr Biol 19:R749-61. 2009
    ..We then discuss models for force integration and spindle length determination. We also emphasize key missing data that notably include absolute values of forces and how they vary as a function of position within the spindle...

    Sophie Dumont
    Department of Systems Biology, Harvard Medical School, Boston, MA 02115, USA
    Curr Biol 21:R688-90. 2011
    ..A recent study probes how the mechanical architecture of the spindle allows it to maintain mechanical integrity despite these forces...
