The microtubule cytoskeleton plays an important role in cell polarity. Central to this process in fission yeast is tea1p, a marker of polarized cell growth that is delivered to the cell surface in a microtubule-dependent fashion. Recent studies suggest that the actin-binding protein bud6p may be a tea1p effector.
