  1. pmc Quantification of asymmetric microtubule nucleation at subcellular structures
    Xiaodong Zhu
    Department of Cell and Developmental Biology, Vanderbilt University Medical Center, Nashville, TN, USA
    Methods Mol Biol 777:235-44. 2011
    ..These approaches can be used for quantification of MT nucleation sites at diverse subcellular structures...
  2. pmc Podosome-regulating kinesin KIF1C translocates to the cell periphery in a CLASP-dependent manner
    Nadia Efimova
    Department of Cell and Developmental Biology, Vanderbilt University Medical Center, Nashville 37232, TN, USA
    J Cell Sci 127:5179-88. 2014
    ..Moreover, chimeric mitochondrially targeted CLASP2 recruits KIF1C, suggesting a transient CLASP-KIF1C association. We propose that CLASPs create preferred microtubule tracks for KIF1C to promote podosome induction downstream of PKC. ..
  3. pmc Modulation of Golgi-associated microtubule nucleation throughout the cell cycle
    Ana Rita Ramada Maia
    Department of Cell and Developmental Biology, Vanderbilt University Medical Center, 465 21st Avenue South, Nashville, TN 37232, USA
    Cytoskeleton (Hoboken) 70:32-43. 2013
    ..We demonstrate that Golgi-derived MTs are indispensable for efficient Golgi assembly in telophase, and speculate that these noncentrosomal MTs may hold specific functions at other cell cycle stages...

    Christopher Arnette
    Department of Cell and Developmental Biology, Vanderbilt University Medical Center, Nashville, TN 37232 JG Brown Cancer Center, University of Louisville, Louisville, KY 40202
    Mol Biol Cell 25:800-10. 2014
    ..These results indicate that RASSF1A is a key regulator in the fine tuning of microtubule dynamics in interphase cells and proper Golgi organization and cell polarity. ..
  5. pmc Golgi as an MTOC: making microtubules for its own good
    Xiaodong Zhu
    Department of Cell and Developmental Biology, Vanderbilt University Medical Center, Nashville, TN 37232, USA
    Histochem Cell Biol 140:361-7. 2013
    ..Here, we summarize the history of this discovery, known molecular prerequisites of MT nucleation at the Golgi and unique functions of Golgi-derived MTs. ..
