See our latest publication at Current Biology. By constructing a chimeric motor protein bearing a kinesin motor domain and a myosin cargo-binding domain, we show that retargeting of growth vesicles to cell poles along microtubules compensates for the absence of actin cables and restores a normal rod shape.
