    ..Based on these results, we propose that BIK1 is required stoichiometrically for the formation or stabilization of microtubules during mitosis and for spindle pole body fusion during conjugation. ..

    ..Our studies suggest a revised paradigm for tubulin cofactors and Arl2 functions as a catalytic chaperone that regulates soluble αβ-tubulin assembly and maintenance to support microtubule dynamics. ..

    ..The cognate G protein-GAP pair is conserved in yeast as Cin4-Cin2, and the ability of RP2 to act as a GAP can be correlated with its ability to complement a CIN2-deletion phenotype.

    The products of the Saccharomyces cerevisiae CIN1, CIN2 and CIN4 genes participate in a nonessential pathway required for normal microtubule function. In this article, we demonstrate that the product of PAC2 also functions in this pathway...

    ..Cells without MAD3 were checkpoint-proficient. We conclude that Mad1 and Mad2 are required to detect bipolar orientation and/or tension at kinetochores, whereas Mad3 is not. ..

    ..Therefore, we conclude that high copies of Sum1p stabilize microtubules against a variety of adverse and destabilizing conditions like mutations, low temperatures and drugs. ..
