Cytokinesis: LET-ting the asters signal. Academic Article uri icon


  • Cytokinesis is regulated by both astral microtubules and the midzone microtubules of the mitotic apparatus. A new study in Caenorhabditis elegans has identified the polarity factor LET-99 and its heterotrimeric G-protein regulators as components of the signaling pathway downstream of astral microtubules.
