  1. Numbers represent individual fixed cells, either containing a normal, radial interphase microtubule array (Radial MT), or a mutant comet-like microtubule array (Comet-Tail MT) resulting from dynein motor overexpression (380 K) in different control or kinesin null cell stains. % Comet refers to the percentage of total cells that showed the distinctive mutant phenotype.
