An in vitro Microscopy-based Assay for Microtubule-binding and Microtubule-crosslinking by Budding Yeast Microtubule-associated Protein
Authors:  Yili Zhu, Weimin Tan and Wei-Lih Lee, date: 12/05/2018, view: 5232, Q&A: 0
In this protocol, we describe a simple microscopy-based method to assess the interaction of a microtubule-associated protein (MAP) with microtubules. The interaction between MAP and microtubules is typically assessed by a co-sedimentation assay, ...
