biosights: November 26, 2012 - Global sourcing for cytokinetic ring assembly

submitted by: JCB
Fission yeast are thought to assemble their cytokinetic actomyosin rings from actin filaments nucleated at myosin-containing nodes around the cell equator. Using an improved actin-binding probe, Huang et al. find that actin cables are nucleated all over the cortex of mitotic fission yeast and are transported to the division site for incorporation into the contractile ring. This biosights episode presents the paper by Huang et al. from the November 26, 2012, issue of The Journal of Cell...

Let's Split Mitosis-Style

submitted by: Destroyer501

I, Harold, am playing as a student who got home late and needs to work on a paper for mitosis. As I am working, I realize that I am too tired and need to rest. While I'm leaving I spill my cup and out falls all the materials required in the video onto my paper, displaying some stages of mitosis. While I'm resting, I have a dream of myself rapping about mitosis, explaining some steps and elements of the process.
