About this book

This volume focuses on the structural aspects of cell division, ranging from nuclear envelope breakdown to cytokinesis and partitioning of the cytoplasm. It examines spindle assembly and chromosome behaviour in mitosis and meiosis, centromere and kinetochore structure and regulation, telomeres, the role of centrosomes, and mechanisms by which overall regulation is achieved. The up-to-date reviews of each topic provide perspectives on recent important findings. Each chapter presents models and new ideas that accommodate available information.


1. Cell cycle checkpoints: safe passage through mitosis; 2. Mitotic changes in the nuclear envelope; 3. Pole apart? Spindle pole bodies and centrosomes differ in ultrastructure yet their function and regulation is conserved; 4. Microtubule dynamics, molecular motors and chromosome behaviour; 5. A moveable feast: the centromere / kinetochore complex in cell division; 6. Telomeres: structure, synthesis and cell cycle regulation; 7. Meiosis: chromosome behaviour and spindle dynamics; 8. Inheritance of the cytoplasm during cell division; 9. Cytokinesis
