Microtubule plus end dynamics, as well as interactions with the cell cortex and internal organelles, may be mediated by a 'plus end complex' of interacting proteins. Recent results suggest that centrosomes with different microtubule-releasing and anchoring properties underlie the development of various microtubule arrays.
