Abstract

Cell division requires the assembly of a microtubule-based spindle which captures and segregates sister chromatids. But how is this spindle broken down once chromosome segregation is complete? New evidence implicates a highly conserved AAA-ATPase in spindle disassembly at the end of mitosis.
