Kinesin-8 is a dimer
Fission yeast expresses two kinesin-8s. These polypeptides colocalize throughout the vegetative cell cycle as they bind cytoplasmic microtubules during interphase, spindle microtubules, and/or kinetochores during early mitosis, and the interpolar spindle as it elongates in anaphase. Homo- and hetero-dimers can be produced in vitro.
