    Spatiotemporal control of mitotic exit during anaphase by an aurora B-Cdk1 crosstalk

    Olga Afonso et al.
    Quantitative live-cell microscopy and molecular perturbations in Drosophila and human cells reveal a crosstalk between molecular 'rulers' (Aurora B) and 'clocks' (Cdk1) that coordinates mitotic exit in space and time.

    Bistability of a coupled Aurora B kinase-phosphatase system in cell division

    Anatoly V Zaytsev et al.
    Self-activating Aurora B kinase, opposed by an inhibitory phosphatase, forms spatial phosphorylation patterns during cell division.

    Measuring NDC80 binding reveals the molecular basis of tension-dependent kinetochore-microtubule attachments

    Tae Yeon Yoo et al.
    Quantitative experiments and theory show that the tension-dependent regulation of NDC80 binding to kinetochore microtubules arises from a combination of the changing Aurora B concentration at NDC80 and the nonlinearity of Aurora B autoactivation.

    Mitotic progression, arrest, exit or death relies on centromere structural integrity, rather than de novo transcription

    Marco Novais-Cruz et al.
    Direct live-cell imaging of human cells, combined with RNA-seq, qPCR and in vitro reconstitution essays, reveal that mitotic progression, arrest, exit or death is independent of de novo transcription.

    Microtubule plus-ends act as physical signaling hubs to activate RhoA during cytokinesis

    Vikash Verma, Thomas J Maresca
    MT plus-end-mediated recruitment of a cortical pool of ECT2 trigger RhoA activation upon contact, which results in localized contractility during cytokinesis.

    Shugoshin biases chromosomes for biorientation through condensin recruitment to the pericentromere

    Kitty F Verzijlbergen et al.
    Shugoshin proteins help to align chromosomes so that copies of the same chromosome attach to microtubules from opposite poles during cell division.

    The COMA complex interacts with Cse4 and positions Sli15/Ipl1 at the budding yeast inner kinetochore

    Josef Fischböck-Halwachs et al.
    The chromosomal passenger complex interacts with the inner kinetochore COMA complex through the Ctf19 C-terminus in vitro which is shown to be important for mediating accurate chromosome segregation.

    An evolutionary recent IFN/IL-6/CEBP axis is linked to monocyte expansion and tuberculosis severity in humans

    Murilo Delgobo et al.
    Mycobacterium tuberculosis exploits an IFN/IL6/CEBP axis linked to monocyte expansion in humans.

    A de novo evolved gene in the house mouse regulates female pregnancy cycles

    Chen Xie et al.
    A female specifically expressed new protein-coding gene that has emerged out of non-coding sequences without detectable signatures of adaptive evolution affects female pregnancy cycles.
