Abstract

Faithful actomyosin ring assembly is pivotal for successful cell division. The mechanisms by which the actomyosin ring is assembled at the correct time and place remain unclear. Recent studies in fission yeast have shown that a myosin II-containing spot may be a novel progenitor structure essential for actomyosin ring assembly.
