The mesh is a network of microtubule connectors that stabilizes individual kinetochore fibers of the mitotic spindle
announces the discovery of a new structure in the cell: the mesh.
From the abstract:
My speculation is that the mesh has not only the role of a scaffold for the microtubule structure.
Together with the microtubules and with some other (yet undiscovered or, on the contrary, very well known) parts, this is the computer.
DNA, which fascinates us, is more like a memory device.
But the computation may be as in chemlambda. The dynamical reorganization of the mesh-microtubule-other proteins structure is very much resembling to a chemlambda molecule (or even to a chemlambda quine.
Mentioned this here, because there is an evocative image
