Abstract

For chromosome segregation in mitosis, each centromere directs assembly of a complex, proteinaceous structure - the kinetochore, which connects the chromosome to microtubules of the mitotic spindle. A recent study has provided important new insights into the mechanism by which kinetochores capture spindle microtubules.
