The mechanisms of eukaryotic CELLS that place or keep the CHROMOSOMES in a particular SUBNUCLEAR SPACE.
An E3 ubiquitin ligase primarily involved in regulation of the metaphase-to-anaphase transition during MITOSIS through ubiquitination of specific CELL CYCLE PROTEINS. Enzyme activity is tightly regulated through subunits and cofactors, which modulate activation, inhibition, and substrate specificity. The anaphase-promoting complex, or APC-C, is also involved in tissue differentiation in the PLACENTA, CRYSTALLINE LENS, and SKELETAL MUSCLE, and in regulation of postmitotic NEURONAL PLASTICITY and excitability.
A furanyl adenine found in PLANTS and FUNGI. It has plant growth regulation effects.

Any of the processes by which nuclear, cytoplasmic, or intercellular factors influence the differential control (induction or repression) of gene action at the level of transcription or translation.
Proteins encoded by homeobox genes (GENES, HOMEOBOX) that exhibit structural similarity to certain prokaryotic and eukaryotic DNA-binding proteins. Homeodomain proteins are involved in the control of gene expression during morphogenesis and development (GENE EXPRESSION REGULATION, DEVELOPMENTAL).
A terminal section of a chromosome which has a specialized structure and which is involved in chromosomal replication and stability. Its length is believed to be a few hundred base pairs.
Histochemical localization of immunoreactive substances using labeled antibodies as reagents.
Mutagenesis where the mutation is caused by the introduction of foreign DNA sequences into a gene or extragenic sequence. This may occur spontaneously in vivo or be experimentally induced in vivo or in vitro. Proviral DNA insertions into or adjacent to a cellular proto-oncogene can interrupt GENETIC TRANSLATION of the coding sequences or interfere with recognition of regulatory elements and cause unregulated expression of the proto-oncogene resulting in tumor formation.
A technique that localizes specific nucleic acid sequences within intact chromosomes, eukaryotic cells, or bacterial cells through the use of specific nucleic acid-labeled probes.
The phenotypic manifestation of a gene or genes by the processes of GENETIC TRANSCRIPTION and GENETIC TRANSLATION.

  • Cytoplasm divides to complete cell division ( cytokinesis ). (
  • The cytoplasm divides, the cell membrane pinches inward ultimately producing two daughter cells (phase: Cytokinesis). (
  • Cell division and thus cell proliferation ultimately relies on cytokinesis, which leads to the physical separation of the two daughter cells at the end of mitosis. (
  • Our current work thus addresses how membrane traffic polarizes cell lipids and associated cytoskeletons to control cytokinesis and successful cell division in normal and pathological situations. (
  • During cytokinesis, it localized on the phragmoplast microtubules and on the cell plate. (
  • and asymmetric inheritance of an older pole by one of the daughter cells during cytokinesis. (
  • Much of the research in the Pringle laboratory exploits the power of yeast as an experimentally tractable model eukaryote to investigate fundamental problems in cell and developmental biology such as the mechanisms of cell polarization and cytokinesis. (
  • In regards to cytokinesis, the major current foci are the roles of the septin proteins and the interactions among the actomyosin contractile ring, the enzymes of extracellular-matrix (cell-wall) synthesis, and proteins that appear to be involved in plasma-membrane reorganization. (
  • There are two main parts to this division: Interphase, which is for growth and preparation, and cell division, which includes mitosis and cytokinesis. (
  • The picture to the right is the while process of mitosis and the beginning of cytokinesis as far as an animal cell is concerned. (
  • Cytokinesis also occurs - the division of cytoplasm and cell into two by constriction from edges of cell. (
  • Intracellular trafficking underpins a wide range of crucial cell physiological processes such as secretion and uptake of materials into cells, cell division/cytokinesis, cell migration, insulin response events and memory acquisition processes. (
  • The cell is actually split in two in a process called cytokinesis, in which the cellular membrane is pinched in the middle like a balloon squeezed in the center. (
  • Cytokinesis then divides the rest of the cell, and two identical cells result. (
  • MEDICAL ANIMATION TRANSCRIPT: In this lesson, we'll be exploring the M phase of the cell cycle including mitosis and cytokinesis. (
  • Cell division includes division of the nucleus, called mitosis, and division of the cytoplasm, called cytokinesis. (
  • The final step of the M phase is cytokinesis, the division of the cytoplasm. (
  • In animal cells, cytokinesis occurs through the inward movement of the cell membrane. (
  • During the M phase, cell division occurs through two processes: mitosis, when the nucleus divides, and cytokinesis, when the cytoplasm divides. (
  • Cytokinesis is division of the cytoplasm. (
  • The discovery of several novel Aurora-A-binding proteins and substrates has implicated Aurora-A in centrosome maturation and separation, acentrosomal and centrosomal spindle assembly, kinetochore function, cytokinesis and in cell fate determination. (
  • In telophase 1, cytokinesis divides the two diploid cells, and in most species, the chromosomes remain condensed and a nucleus does not re-form. (
  • Functionally, the intermediate filaments provide strength to the cell, link up proteins, and separate cells during cytokinesis. (
  • The ultimate goal of cytokinesis is to establish a membrane barrier between daughter cells. (
  • In both meiosis I and II, cytokinesis occurs, and there are two daughter cells per parent cell. (
  • 4: Cytokinesis In the Animal cell, the microfilaments pinches the cytoplasm. (
  • Cytokinesis is a name applied to the cell separation phase of the cell division process. (
  • Explain how interphase prepares a cell for mitosis. (
  • When would mitosis not result in 2 identical daughter cells? (
  • Bacterial cells replicate in a similar way to mitosis. (
  • why do you take cells from the root tip when studying mitosis? (
  • A cell under goes mitosis, the first division takes 24 hours and each subsequent one takes 8hours, how many cells are there after 3 days? (
  • Mitosis is a process of cell division which results in the production of two daughter cells from a single parent cell. (
  • Fluorescent light micrograph of cells during the metaphase stage of mitosis (cell division). (
  • The microtubules drag the chromosomes apart towards each pole to form two identical sets for the two genetically identical daughter cells that are the end product of mitosis. (
  • By G2, cells contain two mother/daughter centriole pairs that remain in proximity until mitosis. (
  • In cdc31-2 and mps2-1 mutants, conditional failure of SPB duplication results in cell cycle arrest with high p34CDC28 kinase activity that depends on the presence of the wild-type MAD1 checkpoint gene, consistent with checkpoint arrest of mitosis. (
  • Double mutant cdc31-2, mps1-1 cells also fail to arrest mitosis at 37 degrees C, despite having SPB structures similar to cdc31-2 single mutants as determined by EM analysis. (
  • Microtubules and microtubule-dependent motor proteins segregate chromosomes during mitosis and also promote cellular organization in nondividing cells. (
  • Unlike mitosis, there is no division of the centromeres at this stage. (
  • The pairs of chromatids line themselves up on the equator as in mitosis, with sister chromatids orientated toward opposite poles. (
  • Mitosis forms somatic cells. (
  • Because the percentage of S2 cells in mitosis is low (∼1%), we conducted our RNAi screen in the presence of dsRNA (double-stranded RNA) to Cdc27 (a subunit of the anaphase-promoting complex) to delay anaphase and thereby increase the percentage of metaphase cells (∼10% of the population). (
  • spindle A structure formed from microtubules in the cytoplasm during cell division that moves chromatids (see mitosis ) or chromosomes (see meiosis ) diametrically apart and gathers them in two clusters at opposite ends (poles) of the cell. (
  • Exit from mitosis in animal cells is substantially delayed when spindle assembly is inhibited, spindle bipolarity is disrupted, or when a monopolar spindle is formed. (
  • In this study we have tested if cells monitor bipolar spindle organization, independent of kinetochore attachment, by analyzing the duration of mitosis in sea urchin zygotes and vertebrate somatic cells containing multipolar spindles in which all kinetochores are attached to spindle poles. (
  • We also found that the presence of supernumerary, unpaired spindle poles did not greatly prolong mitosis. (
  • Observation of untreated PtK1 cells that formed tripolar or tetrapolar spindles revealed that they progressed through mitosis, on average, at the normal rate. (
  • Either end of the spindle formed in a cell during mitosis. (
  • Mitosis is the process of cellular division that produces identical daughter cells from one mother cell. (
  • In single-cell organisms like protists, mitosis produces two whole organisms. (
  • Where mitosis produces two daughter cells from one mother cell, meiosis produces four daughter cells from one mother cell. (
  • Meiosis II is similar to mitosis - sister chromatids split apart into new cells - and the same steps occur in the same order. (
  • Mitosis, the division of the nucleus, is now complete. (
  • Meiosis uses many biochemical processes that are similar to those used in mitosis in order to distribute chromosomes among the resulting cells, but the outcome is very different. (
  • Mitosis is a process related to meiosis that creates two cells that are genetically identical to the parent cell. (
  • The general principle is that mitosis creates body, or "somatic," cells and meiosis creates the cells involved in reproduction, which are called "germ cells. (
  • The diploid zygote undergoes repeated cellular division by mitosis to grow into the organism. (
  • These cells undergo mitosis to create the organism. (
  • STARD9-depleted cells have fragmented PCM, form multipolar spindles, activate the spindle assembly checkpoint (SAC), arrest in mitosis, and undergo apoptosis. (
  • Mitosis is the phase of the cell cycle where chromosomes in the nucleus are evenly divided between two cells. (
  • These onion root tip plant cells are in interphase, prior to the start of mitosis. (
  • Before a dividing cell enters mitosis, it undergoes a period of growth called interphase. (
  • This onion root tip plant cell is in early prophase of mitosis. (
  • These results indicate that commitment to mitosis is co-ordinated by control networks on the spindle pole. (
  • Immunofluorescence light micrograph of a cell (lower left) in anaphase during mitosis (nuclear division). (
  • The research focused on mitosis, the process by which a single cell divides to make two daughter cells . (
  • Meiosis II is generally regarded as being very similar to mitosis , except for the presence of two parent cells, instead of only one. (
  • With the stages in meiosis I, the primary difference lies in prophase I, which is much longer than either its meiosis II or mitosis counterparts, and is in fact the stage a cell is in for 85%-95% of the time spent in meiosis. (
  • 2: Mitosis A stage in which the cell's nucleus and nuclear material divides. (
  • Mitosis is the process by which nucleated cells duplicate. (
  • Mitosis is one of the phases of the cell cycle . (
  • During mitosis, the DNA becomes visible within the nucleus of the cell (its home) because the chromosones are duplicates folded up tightly. (
  • Using a version of γ-tubulin that carries a fluorescent label activated by laser light, the researchers were able to follow the movement of the starting points of microtubules within mitotic spindles by filming dividing human cells. (
  • The researchers describe for the first time where most microtubules form inside the mitotic spindle, how they develop, and how their starting points are transported-with the help of three motor proteins-to opposite poles of the spindle, where they attach. (
  • When the spindle is finally assembled, the microtubules pull the chromosomes to opposite poles and initiate the physical division of the cell. (
  • In addition, they affect non-dividing cells such as neurons, in which microtubules also have important functions. (
  • Daughter chromosomes arrive at the poles and the microtubules disappear. (
  • The dysregulation of SMC1A (both down- and up-regulation) causes aberrant multi-polar spindles, suggesting that cohesin would function to hold microtubules at the spindle pole. (
  • Role of microtubules and tea1p in establishment and maintenance of fission yeast cell polarity. (
  • a slender mass of microtubules formed when a cell divides. (
  • Chromosomes line up in the middle of the cell, pulled there by microtubules. (
  • Pairs of sister chromatids split and are pulled to opposite sides of the cell by the microtubules. (
  • Microtubules pull each homologue to opposite sides of the cell. (
  • To this end the microtubules overlap at the centre of the cell, connecting the opposite spindle poles. (
  • When cells divide, it can be observed that these overlapping microtubules are initially made to slide in relation to one another by so-called motor proteins, but then stop before actually separating. (
  • This not only means that a minimal mechanism for stabilizing overlapping microtubules has been found and experimentally proven, but also that a further generally applicable mechanism has been added to the repertoire of cell biological mechanisms of action. (
  • The STARD9/Kif16a kinesin associates with mitotic microtubules and regulates spindle pole assembly. (
  • When our cells divide, their genetic material - in the form of X-shaped chromosomes - is aligned in the middle of the cell and segregated to opposite poles of the cell by a spindle of long tubular fibers, so-called microtubules. (
  • The two pair of centrioles (formed from the replication of one pair in Interphase) move away from one another toward opposite ends of the cell due to the lengthening of the ​ microtubules that form between them. (
  • Polar fibers, which are microtubules that make up the spindle fibers, reach from each cell pole to the cell's equator. (
  • Polar fibers (microtubules that make up the spindle fibers) continue to extend from the poles to the center of the cell. (
  • Microtubules are also present in the structure of the cilia, a sensory organelle that protrudes from the cell and flagella - another sensory organelle involved in movement which helps the cilia move liquid past the cell. (
  • At anaphase, sister chromatids (white) are moved to separate poles of the cell by microtubules. (
  • Microtubules, part of the cell's cytoskeleton, grow from either pole of the cell and attach to centromeres at the centre of each chromosome. (
  • The microtubules then contract, pulling the chromatids to opposite poles. (
  • Vital to cell division is the presence of two pairs of centrioles, located near the nucleus of each cell, that organize rigid fibers called microtubules into a bipolar structure. (
  • The cell produces more proteins, such as microtubules . (
  • The spindle is the array of green microtubules stretching between the two poles at centre left and right. (
  • From fixed points called spindle poles, at either end of the cell, microtubules extend towards the midline of the cell, some capturing and positioning chromosomes at the midline, others reaching further to overlap with microtubules originating from the other side of the cell. (
  • Anaphase B occurs as the overlapping microtubules at the midzone move past one another to physically push the spindle poles apart. (
  • Using laser ablation to slice through microtubules in the mitotic spindle, researchers have developed a clearer picture of how cell division occurs. (
  • The spindle, which is made of protein strands called microtubules, forms during cell division and segregates chromosomes into the daughter cells. (
  • It was previously unclear how microtubules are organized in the spindles of animal cells, and it was often assumed that the microtubules stretch along the length of the entire structure, pole to pole. (
  • The microtubules generally nucleate and grow from the center of the spindle, from which point they are transported towards the poles. (
  • They disassemble over the course of their life span, resulting in long, young microtubules close to the midline and older, short microtubules closer to the poles. (
  • And it is apical when the Golgi apparatus is between the secretory pole and the nucleus in secretory cells. (
  • The centrosomes then move to opposite sides of the nucleus to organize spindle poles and asters that position the spindle with respect to cortical cues. (
  • Each nucleus now has half of many chromosomes as the nucleus of the parent cell. (
  • Either extremity of the main axis of a nucleus, cell, or organism. (
  • The nucleus plays a very important part in the division of full-grown cells. (
  • As the cell increases in size, cavities make their appearance in the protoplasm, filled with cell sap and air, and this continues till the cavities unite and the protoplasm can only form a lining to the wall, with a few bridles connecting it with the layer of protoplasm surrounding the nucleus in the centre (fig. 3). (
  • The common partition later on splits into two, so that each daughter cell has its own complete wall and a half of the original nucleus (fig. 4). (
  • Changes in the Protoplasm of the Cell Nucleus during its Division. (
  • Before cell division takes place, the entire genome (the genetic material) has been copied, and there are now two complete copies in the cell nucleus. (
  • organelles within the cell begin to replicate the nucleus prepares for division and specialized structures and enzymes used during mitiosis begin to assemble in the cell. (
  • In biology , meiosis is the process by which the number of chromosomes in a cell nucleus is halved during the formation of germ cells ( eggs and sperm ). (
  • The cell nucleus moves in an unusual way, the researchers found. (
  • In animal cells , two pairs of ​ centrioles formed from the replication of one pair are located outside of the nucleus. (
  • Arrows - sites of synapsis from Rickards GK (1965) The Cell Nucleus. (
  • How Does it Happen?When a cell is getting ready to divide, the nucleus splits. (
  • When the nucleus splits, the chromosomes split as well and go to the poles of the cell. (
  • Third Stage:G2 The cell prepares for the cell division of the Nucleus. (
  • In the mother cell the centrosome is normally found in the vicinity of the cell nucleus, and is replicated prior to the onset of cell division. (
  • Then they are lined up across the middle of the nucleus and then the copies are pulled apart to opposite poles of the cell. (
  • In this process, the cell itself divides, and each "pole" becomes a new nucleus in the new cells. (
  • How much of a single cell cycle is spent in interphase? (
  • Interphase occurs between divisions, and is the congest phase in the cell cycle. (
  • This phase in the cell cycle is called interphase. (
  • The G1, S, and G2 phases make up interphase, and the M phase represents cell division. (
  • In the latter part of interphase, the cell still has nucleoli present. (
  • Before a cell divides, the single interphase centrosome duplicates to form the two poles of the mitotic spindle. (
  • 1: Interphase Interphase is the stage where the cell grows and carries out the cellular function, and copies the DNA. (
  • Most eukaryotic cells have 2 copies of every chromosome. (
  • after their last division, they do not contain a chromosome, presumably because of spatial exclusion by the glycogen aggregates. (
  • These results demonstrate how manipulations of nutrient allocation can lead to the exclusion of the chromosome and limit replicative lifespan in E. coli, and illustrate how mutations can have phenotypic effects that are specific for cells with old poles. (
  • Hns-GFP reaches similar levels in daughter cells regardless of the mother's age, but drops dramatically at a cells last division, indicating loss of the mother cell's chromosome. (
  • We measured Hns-GFP intensity in mother and daughter cells of first, second last, and last divisions (Fig 4B), and found a drop in fluorescence in mother cells at the last division, indicating a loss of the chromosome. (
  • In addition to entrapping DNA to ensure proper chromosome segregation during the cell cycle, SMC1A, as a component of cohesin, contributes to facilitating inter-chromatid contacts mediating distant-element interactions and to creating chromosome domains called topologically associating domains (TADs). (
  • Cytoplasmic dynein is a microtubule-dependent motor protein that functions in mitotic cells during centrosome separation, metaphase chromosome congression, anaphase spindle elongation, and chromosome segregation. (
  • The spindle fibres pull the chromosomes to opposite poles halving the chromosome number. (
  • Each pole could receive either chromosome of a pair. (
  • As cell division proceeds, the centromeres move toward spindle poles, while the chromosome arms drag behind. (
  • Chromosomes for making the same polypeptides are said to homologous, and a diploid cell contains one homologue from the mother and one from the father, and so in each diploid cell there are two copies of each genes, which lie in the same locus on the two homologous chromosome. (
  • When DNA is replicated before the cell divides, each chromosome has two identical copies of DNA called sister chromatids. (
  • by the end of this phase each chromosome in the cell consists of two chromatids attached at the centromere. (
  • Chromosome replication and cell division only occurs in the stalked cell stage. (
  • The word "meiosis" comes from the Greek meioun , meaning "to make smaller," since it results in a reduction in chromosome number in the gamete cell. (
  • During cell division, cells form the microtubule-based mitotic spindle, a highly specialized and dynamic structure that mediates proper chromosome transmission to daughter cells. (
  • In a nutshell: The diploid cell contains two homologues of each chromosome, one parental and one maternal. (
  • Each chromosome, instead of consisting of only one chromatid, now has a pair of sister chromatids, which doubles the amount of DNA in the cell while retaining the original number of chromosomes (2n, or diploid). (
  • Errors in cell division can cause mutations that lead to cancer, and this study could shed light on the role of chromosome abnormalities in uncontrolled cell replication. (
  • The cytoplasm divides and produces two daughter cells that are identical to the original cell. (
  • Disruption of centrosomes disrupts the high fidelity of asymmetric division. (
  • The two poles of the mitotic spindle are occupied by centrosomes, which organize the microtubule arrays. (
  • In the preliminary stages of cell division the centrosome divides, and the two daughter centrosomes move to opposite poles. (
  • The special characteristic of C2 is that it targets the supernumerary centrosomes that are only found in tumor cells. (
  • Each cell is equipped with two centrosomes, organelles that allow it to divide in two by each 'pulling' one half of the cell', explains professor Meraldi. (
  • As for the cancer cells, they have more centrosomes that tug the cell in three or four directions during its division, which leads to cell death. (
  • To prevent this, the cancer cells group the centrosomes into two poles. (
  • C2 blocks the grouping, causing a cell death specific to the tumor cells with supernumerary centrosomes, while leaving the healthy cells unharmed', continues the Geneva-based researcher. (
  • The structures that organize the two poles of the spindle in animal cells are called centrosomes. (
  • This ensures that another bipolar spindle can be set up by two centrosomes when the cell divides again. (
  • Interestingly, centrosomes have also been linked to the segregation of cell fate determinants. (
  • One of our current research goals is to examine how this largely mysterious accumulation of cellular material is organized and we hope that a better knowledge of this will help us understand how centrosomes perform their manifold functions in the cell. (
  • A healthy cell undergoing division contains two centrosomes that anchor opposite ends of a molecular spindle. (

  • Until now, it was unclear how centrioles are held together and how their separation at the end of cell division is so precisely regulated. (
  • Gabriela Cabral, a PhD student in the lab of Alex Dammermann at the Center for Molecular Biology of the University of Vienna, explains: "Many people thought that centrioles are held together by the same glue as chromosomes, a substance called cohesin, which is destroyed during cell division. (
  • In all other cases, as in the subsequent cell divisions following fertilization, the glue that holds centrioles together is actually the PCM. (
  • The dense mass of the PCM that entraps the sister centrioles is itself disassembled at the end of cell division. (
  • In animal cells , the two pair of centrioles align at opposite poles of the cell . (
  • Centrioles, unseen, are inside the two yellow clusters at each spindle pole. (
  • Just as the DNA in chromosomes must be duplicated before cell division, so are the centrioles, which are complex assemblies of many different proteins. (
  • This centrosome acts as a microtubule organizing center (MTOC) and remains stationary, forming one pole of the future spindle. (
  • The second centriole is inactive and moves to the opposite side of the cell before being activated as a centrosome/MTOC. (
  • In fission yeast, two types of MTOCs exist in addition to the spindle pole body, the yeast centrosome equivalent. (
  • Broad in the middle and narrowing to a point at either pole, its construction is directed by a microtubule-organizing centre, the centrosome . (
  • Abnormal centrosome numbers are commonly observed in human cancers and are thought to be at least in part responsible for the improper distribution of the genetic material that is a hallmark of many cancer cells. (
  • This tightly regulated process is critical to ensure that both daughter cells will later have the correct centrosome numbers when they divide. (
  • This suggests that interventions that limit centrosome clustering could promote the death of cancer cells. (

  • The animal pole consists of small cells that divide rapidly, in contrast with the vegetal pole below it. (
  • The animal pole is heavily pigmented while the vegetal pole remains unpigmented. (
  • The vegetal pole contains large yolky cells that divide very slowly, in contrast with the animal pole above it. (
  • In some cases, the vegetal pole is thought to differentiate into the extraembryonic membranes that protect and nourish the developing embryo, such as the placenta in mammals and the chorion in birds. (
  • The axis of symmetry passes through on one side the animal pole, and on the other side the vegetal pole. (
  • The animal pole draws its name from its liveliness relative to the slowly developing vegetal pole. (
  • Hence the vegetal pole is named for its relative inactivity relative to the animal pole. (

  • Combining these in a diploid cell might result in E B E B , E B E g or E g E g . (
  • Fertilization occurs when a male haploid cell and female haploid cell fuse together to form a diploid cell, which has two copies of chromosomes (one from each parent). (
  • Others are diploid, grown from a diploid cell called the "zygote," a cell that is the result of fertilization. (
  • These resultant haploid cells can fuse with other haploid cells of the opposite sex or mating type during fertilization to create a new diploid cell, or zygote. (

  • This type of cell division is for growth. (
  • Stem cells are present in all tissues and organs, and are crucial for normal regulated growth. (
  • Cellular division has three main functions: (1) the reproduction of an entire unicellular organism, (2) the growth and repair of tissues in multicellular animals, and (3) the formation of gametes (eggs and sperm) for sexual reproduction in multicellular animals. (
  • Yet, Caulobacter has the swarmer cell stage that results in slower population growth. (
  • The stem cell appears to be responsible for the explosive growth of neurons that occurs in a part of the fetal primate brain known as the outer subventricular zone (OSVZ). (
  • The recently discovered OSVZ stem cell and its progeny appear to drive growth outward from the edges of this horizontal plane, Kriegstein says. (
  • Furthermore, in the mouse, these stem cells do not spin off the intermediate progenitors that powerfully amplify the growth of new neurons in the human brain. (
  • Based on the location of the division planes, predict the direction for spindle fiber growth and hypothesize a mechanism for controlling the direction of cell division (and therefore the morphology of the gametophyte). (

  • Each new cell has exactly the same genetic material (DNA) as the cell that produced it. (
  • Because each gamete has half the genetic material of the mother cell, this fusion results in a zygote with the correct amount of genetic material. (
  • Each gamete contains one complete set of chromosomes, or half of the genetic content of the original cell. (
  • This is important to avoid missegregation of the genetic material, which may result in cell death or tumor formation. (
  • It has been shown that chemical inhibition as well as genetic knockdown of Plk1 results in cells forming a mono-polar spindle phenotype surrounded by DNA rather than a bi-polar arrangement on either side of the metaphase plate. (

  • Ring constriction occurs concomitantly with the assembly of a division septum that is eventually cleaved. (
  • 2 complete spindles at cell poles. (
  • PIP4KIIγ accumulates at the spindle pole before anaphase, and is required for the assembly of functional bipolar spindles. (
  • Additionally, in the cells with two defined spindle poles, γ-tubulin still appears to be less pronounced at strictly the spindle pole with an apparent indistinct staining surrounding the poles indicating that Numb may not be directly required for γ-tubulin localization to the spindles but the misregulated Plk1 localization slows or prevents spindle pole maturation and γ-tubulin recruitment.

  • Using a full-genome RNA interference screen of Drosophila S2 cells, we identified about 200 genes that contribute to spindle assembly, more than half of which were unexpected. (
  • Here, we present a genome-wide screen for mitotic spindle morphology in Drosophila S2 cells and the functional analysis of unexpected genes discovered through the screen. (
  • Some genes on the R1 plasmid are: ParM is a prokaryotic actin homologue which provides the force to drive copies of the R1 plasmid to opposite ends of rod shaped bacteria before division. (
  • Both membranes have dense particles pressed to them which appear to be ribosomes - the manner in which they are arranged resembles that of ribosomes on the rough endoplasmic reticulum in eukaryotic cells. (

  • Chromosomes align at the metaphase plate at right angles to the spindle poles. (
  • Tissue stem cells play a key role in tissue maintenance. (
  • Drosophila melanogaster central brain neuroblasts are excellent models for stem cell asymmetric division. (

  • Adult tissue stem cells play key roles in tissue maintenance/repair ( Nystul and Spradling, 2006 ). (
  • In each division, the daughters differ in fate: one retains stem cell character and the other differentiates. (
  • Both embryonic and larval NBs are polarized cells exhibiting strict division patterns crucial for their roles as stem cells. (
  • The empty cell is now dead for all time coming, though it may exist for a thousand years or more, if it forms part of the stem of a giant Sequoia gigantea of California. (
  • The ability to precisely locate stem and progenitors requires defining lineage progression from stem to differentiated cells, assessing the mode of cell expansion and self-renewal and identifying markers to assess the different cell states within the lineage. (
  • These findings provide a means of identifying presumed stem and progenitor cells within the lineage. (
  • At the center of this scientific ferment are new stem cell discoveries by researchers at UCSF. (
  • Stem cells in the human brain spin off neurons that populate the layers of the cerebral cortex and form vertical columns. (
  • The human brain has an enormously expanded surface area in the cerebral cortex," says Arnold Kriegstein, MD, PhD, director of the Eli and Edythe Broad Center of Regeneration Medicine and Stem Cell Research at UCSF. (
  • Last year, Kriegstein's laboratory team reported the identification of a long-elusive stem cell that we may have to thank for our success as a species. (
  • Each time the OSVZ neural stem cell divides, it regenerates itself and also spins off an intermediary cell. (
  • Each stem cell sends a branch upward through the layers of cortex, and this extension acts like a guide wire for newborn neurons traveling through the cortical layers. (
  • The newly described stem cells are responsible both for making the nerve cells and for guiding them to their proper locations in the cortex, where they form cell columns. (
  • Although the OSVZ region is absent in the mouse, Kriegstein's lab team nonetheless went looking in the mouse brain for a stem cell similar to the OSVZ stem cell. (
  • This time-lapse movie shows cell division in a newly discovered type of brain stem cell in the mouse. (
  • The stem cell is similar to a human stem cell identified by the same UCSF laboratory research group last year. (
  • This time-lapse movie shows a different type of unusual movement observed in another type of dividing stem cell in the mouse brain. (
  • Radial glia stem cells arose earlier in evolution and undergo cell division at the surface of the brain's central cavities, called ventricles. (
  • What these cell fate determinants are and how they are distributed when a stem cell divides is another big question. (
  • In addition, many stem cells continue dividing asymmetrically throughout life. (
  • This keeps the number of stem cells under control, which is essential to prevent cancer and tissue degeneration. (
  • Simultaneous to this process, the opposite ends of the filaments extend towards the cell centre, where they interact with chromosomes. (
  • The replicated chromosomes are moving to opposite ends of the cell. (
  • The pairs of bivalents seperate into chromatid pairs, each pair of chromatid is pulled to a pole. (
  • The caspase-related protease separase (EXTRA SPINDLE POLES, ESP) plays a major role in chromatid disjunction and cell expansion in Arabidopsis thaliana. (
  • Furthermore, whilst Pa ESP can rescue the chromatid nondisjunction phenotype of Arabidopsis ESP mutants, it cannot rescue anisotropic cell expansion. (
  • Consequently, chromatid pairs migrate to opposite poles, such that both chromatids at a given pole are derived from a single parent. (
  • We have shown that during lineage progression from a quiescent adult muscle satellite cell to a differentiated myofibre, both symmetric and asymmetric divisions take place. (
  • In addition, asymmetric segregation of template DNA and the cytoplasmic protein Numb provides a landmark to define cell behaviour as self-renewal and differentiation decisions are being executed. (
  • These include its role in endocytosis, a tumor suppressor role via regulation of p53 stability, and asymmetric self renewal during progenitor cell division. (
  • Every multicellular organism is generated from a single cell that undergoes a series of asymmetric cell divisions. (
  • Despite its importance, the mechanisms controlling asymmetric cell division are poorly understood. (

(
  • Cellular division has two steps. (
  • Cellular reproduction defines life, yet our textbook-level understanding of cell division is limited to a small number of model organisms centered around humans. (
  • During our in vitro tests, we found that C2 killed up to 20 times more cancer cells than other combinations, while sparing healthy cells', explains Patrick Meraldi, a professor in the Department of Cellular Physiology and Metabolism in UNIGE's Faculty of Medicine and at the CRTOH. (
  • Some of these less pronounced phenotypes may not prevent cell division and may contribute to cellular aneuploidy and cancer. (
  • Anaphase is the step in cellular division during which the chromosomes physically separate and are dragged to either end of the cell. (
  • Now, however, "we have a very detailed and complete description of four molecules" -- Klp9p, Ase1p, Cdc2p, and Clp1p "" each playing a role in one aspect of cellular division, Anaphase B. (
