During mitosis, kinetochores coordinate the attachment of centromeric DNA to the dynamic plus ends of microtubules, which is hypothesized to pull sister chromatids toward opposing poles of the mitotic spindle. The outer kinetochore Ndc80 complex acts synergistically with the Ska (spindle and kinetochore-associated) complex to harness the energy of depolymerizing microtubules and power chromosome movement. The Ska complex is a hexamer consisting of two copies of the proteins Ska1, Ska2 and Ska3, respectively. The C-terminal domain of the spindle and kinetochore-associated protein 1 (Ska1) is the microtubule-binding domain of the Ska complex. We solved the solution structure of the C. elegans microtubule-binding domain (MTBD) of the protein Ska1 using NMR spectroscopy. Here, we report the resonance assignments of the MTBD of C. elegans Ska1.
