    Centrosome age regulates kinetochore–microtubule stability and biases chromosome mis-segregation

    Ivana Gasic et al.
    The presence of cenexin at the old centrosome imposes a functional asymmetry on the mitotic spindle that impacts chromosome alignment and segregation.

    Contractile acto-myosin network on nuclear envelope remnants positions human chromosomes for mitosis

    Alexander JR Booth et al.
    Live-cell imaging shows that the contractile acto-myosin network on the nuclear envelope remnant positions chromosomes in early mitosis to ensure efficient and correct interactions between chromosomes and the mitotic spindle.

    Activation of Discs large by aPKC aligns the mitotic spindle to the polarity axis during asymmetric cell division

    Ognjen Golub et al.
    The Par complex controls spindle orientation during asymmetric cell division by phosphorylating the tumor suppressor Discs large, overcoming its autoinhibited state, and allowing it to bind the microtubule-binding protein GukHolder.

    Single nucleus sequencing reveals evidence of inter-nucleus recombination in arbuscular mycorrhizal fungi

    Eric CH Chen et al.
    Arbuscular mycorrhizal fungi generate nuclear diversity in the dikaryotic life-stage stage via inter-nucleus recombination.

    NuMA-microtubule interactions are critical for spindle orientation and the morphogenesis of diverse epidermal structures

    Lindsey Seldin et al.
    A newly identified microtubule binding activity of NuMA is required for orienting the mitotic spindle.

    Stoichiometric interactions explain spindle dynamics and scaling across 100 million years of nematode evolution

    Reza Farhadifar et al.
    Stoichiometric interactions between microtubules and cortical force-generators set spindle size, position and dynamics, and its scaling with cell size in nematode species.

    Kinesin-6 regulates cell-size-dependent spindle elongation velocity to keep mitosis duration constant in fission yeast

    Lara Katharina Krüger et al.
    The scaling of spindle elongation velocity with cell size is regulated by the amounts of Kinesin-6 molecules and the number of binding sites for the motor to the mitotic spindle.

    Live cell imaging of meiosis in Arabidopsis thaliana

    Maria A Prusicki et al.
    Live cell imaging and the in vivo dissection into distinct stages, called landmarks, represents a new methodology for analyzing meiosis in Arabidopsis and likely in other species as well.

    Mechanical design principles of a mitotic spindle

    Jonathan J Ward et al.
    Precise control of microtubule architecture greatly increases the force that the spindle can exert on chromosomes.

    In vitro reconstitution of branching microtubule nucleation

    Ammarah Tariq et al.
    Purification of two conserved protein complexes, the γ-TuRC and Augmin, using a simple affinity technique, demonstrates that they are necessary and sufficient for the essential phenomenon of branching microtubule nucleation.
