Oriented Cell Division: The Pull of the Pole.

07:00 EST 17th December 2018 | BioPortfolio

Summary of "Oriented Cell Division: The Pull of the Pole."

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.

Cell Contact Gives a Twist to Cell Division.

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...

A plane choice: coordinating timing and orientation of cell division during plant development.

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...

Division-site localization of RodZ is required for efficient Z ring formation in Escherichia coli.

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...

A SOSEKI-based coordinate system interprets global polarity cues in Arabidopsis.

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...

The last-born daughter cell contributes to division orientation of Drosophila larval neuroblasts.

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...

A Multi-center, Prospective, Single-blind, Controlled Trial Comparing Diagnostic Value of Different EUS-FNA Techniques

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...

Durvalumab for MSI-H or POLE Mutated Metastatic Colorectal Cancer

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...

Long-term Surgical Outcomes of Scaphoid Proximal Pole Fracture Nonunion

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...

The Pull Test To Determine Responders To Subacromial Injection In Patients With Shoulder Impingement

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...

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

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.
