Cytokinesis, the last step in cell division, is a process common to all eukaryotic life forms. The many mechanisms cells use to divide one parent cell into two progeny reflect the diversity of eukaryotic life. Despite the varied mechanisms cells use, increasing evidence demonstrates that many different cells use 'classical' membrane trafficking proteins for cytokinesis. This review highlights recent evidence for roles for membrane trafficking proteins in cytokinesis.
