The clever glue keeping the cell’s moving parts connected

Proteins in the cell can form tiny liquid droplets that act as a smart molecular glue, discover researchers. Clinging to the ends of filaments called microtubules, this smart liquid ensures the nucleus is correctly positioned for cell division. The findings explain the long-standing mystery of how moving protein structures of the cell’s machinery are coupled together.
