Cells are thought to divide along their longest axis. Now, two studies in Developmental Cell (Scarpa et al., 2018) and EMBO Journal (Finegan et al., 2018) reveal that in many instances, cell division orientation in vivo is not determined by cell shape, but rather by local anisotropies in cell mechanics.

Name: Developmental cell
The orientation of cell division is crucial in many developmental processes. In this issue of Developmental Cell, Sugioka and Bowerman (2018) report a myosin-dependent mechanism whereby physical conta...
Development requires precise cell positioning and tissue organization to generate functional organs and viable organisms. Plant development depends on precisely oriented cell divisions, which are typi...
Bacteria such as Escherichia coli must coordinate cell elongation and cell division. Elongation is regulated by an elongasome complex containing MreB actin and the transmembrane protein RodZ, which re...
Multicellular development requires coordinated cell polarization relative to body axes, and translation to oriented cell division. In plants, it is unknown how cell polarities are connected to organis...
Controlling the orientation of cell division is important in the context of cell fate choices and tissue morphogenesis. However, the mechanisms providing the required positional information remain inc...
The aim of this study is to compare endoscopic ultrasound guided-fine needle aspiration (EUS-FNA) with a standard 22-gauge needle using "standard suction", "slow-pull" and "wet suction" fo...
The POLE mutations represent high somatic mutation loads in patients with colorectal cancer, especially in those with MMR proficient or MSS, therefore, tumors harbouring POLE mutations mig...
The treatment for scaphoid proximal pole nonunion remains challenging due to the poor vascularity in the proximal pole fragment, associated SL injury and the technique of fixation. Vascula...
This study centers on the treatment of low pole renal stones by flexible ureteroscope and intends to find the key anatomical parameters using a prospective, randomized multi-center trial d...
Shoulder pain is very common. People receive injections in their shoulder for their painful shoulder. However, investigators do not know which patient with shoulder pain responds best to a...
Microtubule organizing centers of FUNGI and DIATOMS. They are embedded in the NUCLEAR ENVELOPE and evolve into the spindle apparatus during CELL DIVISION.
The fission of a CELL. It includes CYTOKINESIS, when the CYTOPLASM of a cell is divided, and CELL NUCLEUS DIVISION.
Unequal cell division that results in daughter cells of different sizes.
The pull on a limb or a part thereof. Skin traction (indirect traction) is applied by using a bandage to pull on the skin and fascia where light traction is required. Skeletal traction (direct traction), however, uses pins or wires inserted through bone and is attached to weights, pulleys, and ropes. (From Blauvelt & Nelson, A Manual of Orthopaedic Terminology, 5th ed)
The complex series of phenomena, occurring between the end of one CELL DIVISION and the end of the next, by which cellular material is duplicated and then divided between two daughter cells. The cell cycle includes INTERPHASE, which includes G0 PHASE; G1 PHASE; S PHASE; and G2 PHASE, and CELL DIVISION PHASE.
