    ..Given this nervous system-specific expression, it will be important to determine if Drosophila spastin loss-of-function mutations also lead to neurodegeneration. ..

    ..Collectively, these findings reveal novel and significant roles for microtubule severing within the spindle and broaden our understanding of the molecular machinery used to move chromosomes. ..

    ..However, we identified a fidgetin-dependent increase in microtubule dynamics in severed dendrites. We conclude that fidgetin acts after injury to promote disassembly of microtubules in dendrites severed from the cell body. ..
