    Jason Stumpff
    Department of Physiology and Biophysics, University of Washington, Seattle, Washington 98195, USA
    Curr Biol 18:R81-3. 2008
    ..Two recent studies indicate that these attachments are facilitated by the geometry of chromosomes and the bipolar arrangement of spindle microtubules...

    Linda Wordeman
    Department of Physiology and Biophysics University of Washington School of Medicine Seattle, WA 98195, USA
    Dev Cell 17:437-8. 2009
    ..In a recent issue of Cell, Varga and colleagues describe how these two activities may be used to simultaneously measure and adjust the length of cellular microtubules...

    Jason Stumpff
    Department of Physiology and Biophysics, University of Washington School of Medicine, Seattle, WA 98195, USA
    Dev Cell 14:252-62. 2008
    ..Based on these findings, we propose a molecular model in which Kif18A regulates kinetochore microtubule dynamics to control mitotic chromosome positioning...

    Jason Stumpff
    Department of Physiology and Biophysics, University of Washington, Seattle, Washington 98195, USA
    Curr Biol 17:R326-8. 2007
    ..During mitosis, chromosomes must become aligned at the equator of the mitotic spindle before segregation. Recent work suggests that a kinesin-8 motor uses a unique combination of activities to regulate this process...

    Department of Physiology and Biophysics, University of Washington School of Medicine, Seattle, WA, USA
    Methods Mol Biol 392:37-49. 2007
    ..Microtubule dynamics are spatially and temporally controlled in the cell by accessory proteins. Molecular motor proteins of the kinesin superfamily that act to destabilize microtubules play important roles in this regulation (4)...
