Chromosome segregation: dual control ensures fidelity

Abstract

A mitotic checkpoint arrests cell cycle progression in response to spindle damage. It now appears that this checkpoint has two separate arms, one that prevents anaphase and a second that prevents cytokinesis and DNA re-replication.

Cell Checkpoints & Regulators

Cell cycle checkpoints are a series of complex checkpoint mechanisms that detect DNA abnormalities and ensure that DNA replication and repair are complete before cell division. They are primarily regulated by cyclins, cyclin-dependent kinases, and the anaphase-promoting complex/cyclosome. Here is the latest research.
