Abstract

Centrosomes play an important role in Drosophila melanogaster stem cells, where the different size and activity of the two centrosomes help these cells divide asymmetrically. The molecular basis of the centrosome asymmetry has remained unclear, but new work highlights the centrosomal protein Centrobin as a key player in this process.
