Microtubule dynamics and signal transduction at the immunological synapse: new partners and new connections.

Abstract : Antigen recognition induces T cells to polarize towards antigen presenting cells (APC) generating an organized cell interface named the immunological synapse. T-cell microtubules (MTs) reorient the MT-organizing centre (MTOC) to the immunological synapse central region, while MT irradiate towards the synapse periphery. Martín-Cófreces et al (2012) describe in this issue that the MT plus-end-binding protein 1 (EB1) interacts with TCR cytosolic regions and mediate the organization of an immunological synapse fully functional to transduce activation signals.
