During cell division, the membranes that surround the nucleus must be dismantled to allow the DNA housed inside the nucleus to be partitioned into two daughter cells. New work shows how this happens. 

Figures and Topics from this paper

The life cycle of the metazoan nuclear envelope.
TLDR
This work will review recent insights into nuclear membrane dynamics during the cell cycle and highlight the need to re-establish the nuclear compartment at the end of each cell division. Expand
Remodelling the walls of the nucleus
TLDR
The finding that components of the nuclear membrane become distributed throughout a continuous endoplasmic reticulum during mitosis indicates new mechanisms by which nuclear membrane domains are established, and highlights unique problems in the establishment of NE topology. Expand
Human Asunder promotes dynein recruitment and centrosomal tethering to the nucleus at mitotic entry
TLDR
The protein Asunder is required in human cultured cells for dynein localization and tethering of centrosomes to the nucleus at mitotic entry. Expand
A novel mechanism of nuclear envelope break‐down in a fungus: nuclear migration strips off the envelope
TLDR
The data indicate that dynein‐mediated premitotic nuclear migration is essential for envelope removal in U. maydis, indicating that spindle pole bodies have to reach into the bud where MEN signalling participates in envelope removal. Expand
Nuclear anarchy: asynchronous mitosis in multinucleated fungal hyphae.

TLDR
Recent work in the fungus Ashbya gossypii illustrates how unique spatial and temporal regulation of conserved cell cycle regulators directs mitosis in multinucleated cells. Expand
Expression of DNAJB12 or DNAJB14 Causes Coordinate Invasion of the Nucleus by Membranes Associated with a Novel Nuclear Pore Structure
TLDR
Genetic studies showed that the chaperone activity of DNAJ/Hsc70 is required for the formation of DJANGOS, which is designated for DNAJ-associated nuclear globular structures that break down rapidly during cell division and reform synchronously in the daughter cell nuclei. Expand
Motors and Membrane Trafficking
One hallmark of eukaryotic cells is that they contain many functionally distinct membrane-bounded compartments, or organelles. Each organelle carries out highly specialized functions because itExpand
Nuclear Envelope Dynamics in Embryos and Somatic Cells
TLDR
The Nuclear Envelope Dynamics in Drosophila Pronuclear Formation and in Embryos and the Distribution of Emerin and Lamins in X-Linked Emery-Dreifus Muscular Dystrophy are studied. Expand
Protein localization studies in the age of 'Omics'.
TLDR
As thousands of new genes are identified in genomics efforts, the rush is on to learn something about the functional roles of the proteins encoded by those genes, with large-scale screens of protein localization now being undertaken. Expand
Vesicular Trafficking of Incoming Human Papillomavirus 16 to the Golgi Apparatus and Endoplasmic Reticulum Requires γ-Secretase Activity
TLDR
A novel human papillomavirus 16 (HPV16) pseudovirus is developed in which the carboxy terminus of the minor capsid protein L2 is exposed on the exterior of the intact capsid prior to cell binding, revealing a new pathway of cell entry by DNA viruses and suggest that components of this pathway are candidate antiviral targets.

Sorting nuclear membrane proteins at mitosis.
TLDR
The conclusions favour a model in which nuclear membranes do not vesiculate during mitosis, which proposes that nuclear membranes vanish by diffusion of their integral proteins through a continuous endoplasmic reticulum. Expand
Functional organization of the nuclear envelope.
TLDR
The Nuclear Pore Complex as a Macromolecular Translocation Machine and Functions of Nuclear Localization Signals are described. Expand
Cytoplasmic Dynein as a Facilitator of Nuclear Envelope Breakdown
TLDR
A model in which dynein facilitates nuclear envelope breakdown by pulling nuclear membranes and associated proteins poleward along astral microtubules leading to nuclear membrane detachment is suggested. Expand
Nuclear Envelope Breakdown Proceeds by Microtubule-Induced Tearing of the Lamina
TLDR
The mechanism of nuclear envelope breakdown (NEBD) was investigated in live cells, suggesting a mechanism mediated by a minus-end-directed motor. Expand
Cytoplasmic dynein and dynactin in cell division and intracellular transport.
TLDR
Another multisubunit complex, dynactin, may be required for most, if not all, cytoplasmic dynein-driven activities and may provide clues to Dynein's functional diversity. Expand
A new model for nuclear envelope breakdown.
TLDR
A new model is proposed for the mechanism of nuclear envelope breakdown in which disassembly of the nuclear pores leads to a fenestration of thenuclear envelope double membrane. Expand
Nuclear envelope breakdown in mammalian cells involves stepwise lamina disassembly and microtubule-drive deformation of the nuclear membrane.
TLDR
Nuclear envelope breakdown is not prevented when the microtubules are depolymerized by nocodazole; however, the mode of nuclear lamina fragmentation in the absence of microtubule is markedly different from the normal one and involves multiple raffles and gaps, which develop rapidly along the entire surface of the nuclear envelope.

THE ULTRASTRUCTURE OF A MAMMALIAN CELL DURING THE MITOTIC CYCLE
TLDR
The precise selection of cells during the various stages of anaphase has made it possible to follow chronologically the morphological features of the initiation of nuclear membrane reformation. Expand
An Ordered Inheritance Strategy for the Golgi Apparatus: Visualization of Mitotic Disassembly Reveals a Role for the Mitotic Spindle
During mitosis, the ribbon of the Golgi apparatus is transformed into dispersed tubulo-vesicular membranes, proposed to facilitate stochastic inheritance of this low copy number organelle atExpand
Nuclear Membrane Dynamics and Reassembly in Living Cells: Targeting of an Inner Nuclear Membrane Protein in Interphase and Mitosis
TLDR
Selective changes in lateral mobility of LBR–GFP within the ER/NE membrane system form the basis for its localization to the inner nuclear membrane during interphase, and also underlie the redistribution of this molecule during NE disassembly and reformation in mitosis. Expand
