'Finger trap' tension stabilizes cells’ chromosome-separating machinery

Sue Biggins and colleagues find accurate gene distribution during cell division depends on stable setup

Nov. 29, 2010

Scientists from the Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center, University of Washington and Institute for Systems Biology have discovered an amazingly simple way that cells stabilize their machinery for forcing apart chromosomes. When a cell gets ready to split into new cells, this steady setup permits its genetic material to be separated and distributed accurately. Otherwise, problem cells—like cancer cells—arise. The findings are reported Nov. 25 in Nature.
