Linda Brochhausen geht der Frage nach, wie der Zellkern der Zelle auch nach der Zellteilung Polarität aufprägen kann und welche Rolle dabei das den Kern umgebende Aktinnetzwerk spielt. Anhand einer transgenen Tabakzelllinie, in der eine perinukleäre Aktinpopulation fluoreszent markiert wurde, analysiert die Autorin die Kernmigration durch Hemmstoffexperimente, um der Funktion des nuclear baskets auf den Grund zu gehen.
