Spindle microtubules generate tension-dependent changes in the distribution of inner kinetochore proteins

By Aussie Suzuki, Tetsuya Hori, Tatsuya Nishino, Jiro Usukura, Atsushi Miyagi, Kosuke Morikawa and Tatsuo Fukagawa


The N and C termini of CENP-T undergo tension-dependent separation, suggesting that CENP-T elongation is responsible for changes in the shape of the inner kinetochore
