Kinetochore Attachment: How the Hec Can a Cell Do It?

Research output: Contribution to journalShort survey

Abstract

Creating stable yet flexible attachments of spindle microtubules to the kinetochore is critical for facilitating chromosome congression, segregation, and checkpoint signaling. Two new studies have elucidated the molecular details of how the Ndc80 complex mediates this dynamic attachment.
