Astral and spindle forces in PtK2 cells during anaphase B: a laser microbeam study.

Abstract

Rat kangaroo kidney epithelium (PtK2) cells develop prominent asters and spindles during anaphase B of mitosis. It has been shown that severing the spindle at early anaphase B in living PtK1 cells results in a dramatic increase in the rate of pole-pole separation. This result suggested that the asters pull on the spindle poles, putting tension on the… (More)
