A little guide for advanced search:

  • Tip 1. You can use quotes "" to search for an exact expression.
    Example: "cell division"
  • Tip 2. You can use + symbol to restrict results containing all words.
    Example: +cell +stem
  • Tip 3. You can use + and - symbols to force inclusion or exclusion of specific words.
    Example: +cell -stem
e.g. searching for members in projects tagged cancer

Genomic abnormalities are often seen in tumor cells, and tetraploidization, which results from failures during cytokinesis, is presumed to be an early step in cancer formation. Here, we report a cell division control mechanism that prevents tetraploidization in human cells with perturbed chromosome segregation. First, we found that Aurora B inactivation promotes completion of cytokinesis by abscission. Chromosome bridges sustained Aurora B activity to posttelophase stages and thereby delayed abscission at stabilized intercellular canals. This was essential to suppress tetraploidization by furrow regression in a pathway further involving the phosphorylation of mitotic kinesin-like protein 1 (Mklp1). We propose that Aurora B is part of a sensor that responds to unsegregated chromatin at the cleavage site. Our study provides evidence that in human cells abscission is coordinated with the completion of chromosome segregation to protect against tetraploidization by furrow regression.
