Abstract

Kinesin-8 family members function in microtubule length control and exhibit highly processive plus-end directed motility in conjunction with microtubule dissassembly activity. In a recent issue of Cell, Varga and colleagues describe how these two activities may be used to simultaneously measure and adjust the length of cellular microtubules.
