    A two-step mechanism for the inactivation of microtubule organizing center function at the centrosome

    Jérémy Magescas et al.
    The microtubule organizing potential of the centrosome is inactivated in a stepwise process through phosphatase activity and mechanical disruption to remove an aging matrix of proteins.

    Control of endothelial cell polarity and sprouting angiogenesis by non-centrosomal microtubules

    Maud Martin et al.
    Non-centrosomal microtubules are required for endothelial polarization and sprouting, while centrosomally anchored microtubule arrays are both dispensable and insufficient for these processes.

    A FRET-based study reveals site-specific regulation of spindle position checkpoint proteins at yeast centrosomes

    Yuliya Gryaznova et al.
    Daughter-cell-associated factors and centrosome-based regulation is important in mitotic exit and spindle position checkpoint control.

    A molecular mechanism of mitotic centrosome assembly in Drosophila

    Paul T Conduit et al.
    The proteins DSpd-2 and Centrosomin assemble into dynamic scaffolds that build from the inside out around the mother centriole and support centrosome maturation.

    Evidence that a positive feedback loop drives centrosome maturation in fly embryos

    Ines Alvarez-Rodrigo et al.
    Polo kinase recruitment by the protein Spd-2 to the pericentriolar scaffold is a key element of the positive feedback loop which drives the expansion of the mitotic centrosomes in flies.

    NOCA-1 functions with γ-tubulin and in parallel to Patronin to assemble non-centrosomal microtubule arrays in C. elegans

    Shaohe Wang et al.
    The C. elegans ninein homolog NOCA-1 is important for the assembly of non-centrosomal microtubule arrays required for embryo production, nuclear positioning and larval development.

    Structured illumination with particle averaging reveals novel roles for yeast centrosome components during duplication

    Shannon Burns et al.
    Visualization of yeast spindle pole proteins using a new microscopy method shows that assembly into the nuclear membrane occurs at the same time as duplication.

    PPP1R35 is a novel centrosomal protein that regulates centriole length in concert with the microcephaly protein RTTN

    Andrew Michael Sydor et al.
    The previously uncharacterized protein PPP1R35 is a novel centriolar luminal protein critical for centriole elongation by acting in a complex with microcephaly protein RTTN.

    Aurora A depletion reveals centrosome-independent polarization mechanism in Caenorhabditis elegans

    Kerstin Klinkert et al.
    Experiments reveal mechanisms through which Caenorhabditis elegans zygotes depleted of Aurora A or lacking centrosomes spontaneously establish two posterior PAR-2 domains, one at each pole, in a curvature-dependent manner.

    Physical association between a novel plasma-membrane structure and centrosome orients cell division

    Takefumi Negishi et al.
    A newly discovered membrane structure associates with one of the centrioles and affects two important centrosomal events in epidermal cells – ciliary positioning and spindle orientation – through a physical interaction.
