Abstract

In the February 21 issue of Cell, Liakopoulos et al. demonstrate that asymmetrical loading of Kar9 onto astral microtubules (MTs) emanating from the budward-directed spindle pole ensures delivery of this spindle pole to the bud. Kar9 mediates alignment of the spindle with the cell polarity axis through a Myo2-dependent mechanism that reorients astral MTs toward the bud.
