Nanoscale electrostatic disassembly force acting at a small section of a kinetochore. The top microtubule depicts electrostatic interactions over critical distances between groups of negative charges on C-termini near microtubule free ends and positively charged Hec 1 tails. The bottom microtubule depicts the interactions between negatively charged C-termini and positively charged Hec 1 tails within a kinetochore
