Abstract

The road to polarity is paved with septins, say Spiliotis et al. Septin-decorated microtubule tracks, the group finds, provide polarity proteins with a high-speed path to the plasma membrane.

Figure 1

SEPT2 (green) turns polyglutamated microtubules (red, top) into high speed tracks. Epith
