Cell division is an important process in development, tissue repair and reproduction in a wide variety of animals. The purpose of cell division is to separate the genetic material, or DNA, into two newly forming daughter cells.
Super-resolution in live cells: Visualizing the molecular organization of the cell division machinery
We set out to elucidate the molecular organization of the proteins of the cytokinetic apparatus, an essential step to understanding the mechanism of cell division. Cytokinesis is best understood in the single cell model organism fission yeast.
