On page 945, Kiessling et al. observe that FtsZ protein from the moss Physcomitrella patens can form a cytoskeleton-like network in chloroplasts... The latter characteristic made it easier for Kiessling et al. to detect fusions between FtsZ and green fluorescent protein, and may explain why the plastoskeleton has been characterized first in this moss... Now on page 847, Mah et al. describe ubiquilin, a ubiquitin-related protein that interacts with the presenilins and increases their rate of synthesis... Mah et al. find that ubiquilin expression increases the levels of presenilins without altering the proteins' half lives... Less intense dynein staining at attached kinetochores could be explained if the resident dynein was either stretched out onto microtubules, or masked by microtubules or associated proteins... But this walk towards the poles may have another function... If dynein pulls checkpoint proteins with it, away from the kinetochore, it could act as the microtubule-attachment detector that turns off the checkpoint and allows mitosis to proceed.
