A new study shows that the filamentous fungus, Aspergillus nidulans, which has a closed mitosis, does not maintain a continuous permeability barrier during mitosis. This work challenges current views of the differences between closed and open mitosis and has implications for understanding mitotic specific changes in the nuclear pore complex and Ran GTPase system in lower eukaryotes.
