Animal cell division: A fellowship of the double ring?

Saint, Robert; Somers, W Gregory


Despite a century of research into the nature of animal cell division, a molecular explanation for the positioning of the actomyosin contractile ring has remained elusive. The discovery of a novel interaction between regulators of Rho family small GTPases has revealed a link between the mitotic microtubules and the contractile ring during the later stages of mitosis. The properties of the interacting Rho regulators suggest a molecular model for the positioning and initiation of contractile ring...[Show more]
