Description

Reflecting significant advances in microtubule research during the past decade, a prominent group of contributors present reviews dealing with three central topics--the biochemistry and assembly of tubulin dimer; associated proteins and regulation of microtubule function; and microtubule organization and function in the cell.
Partial table of contents:

Regulation of Tubulin Synthesis (D. Cleveland & N. Theodorakis).

Pharmacological Probes of Microtubule Function (L. Wilson & M. Jordan).

PROTEINS ASSOCIATED WITH MICROTUBULES.

The MAP1 Family (R. Muller, et al.).

MAP2 (A. Matus).

Tektins (J. Norrander & R. Linck).

Microtubule Stabilization (R. Margolis & D. Job).

The Kinensin Superfamily (A. Pereira & L. Goldstein).

MICROTUBULE ORGANIZATION AND FUNCTION IN CELLS.
