Mitosis and cytokinesis are undoubtedly the most spectacular parts of the cell cycle. Errors in the choreography of these processes can lead to aneuploidy or genetic instability, fostering cell death or disease. Here, I give an overview of the many mitotic kinases that regulate cell division and the fidelity of chromosome transmission. 
The Kinetochore and Mitosis: Focus on the Regulation and Correction Mechanisms of Chromosome-to-Microtubule Attachments
During mitosis, accurate segregation of the chromosomes duplicated at the S phase of the cell cycle relies on the successful of their proper attachment to microtubules of the mitotic spindle and
Mitosis and its regulation
TLDR
The traditional view of mitosis has been divided into different stages that were characterized by morphological studies in dividing cells; advances in molecular biology have led beyond this characterization, so that the authors now know a range of participant molecules.
Centrosomes and checkpoints: the MPS1 family of kinases
TLDR
The MPS1 family of kinases are reviewed for their roles in the assembly, function and disassembly of the mitotic spindle and in the checkpoints that monitor mitotic progression.
The end of mitosis from a phosphatase perspective
TLDR
Some recent data on the relevance for protein phosphatases in the reversal of mitotic phosphorylation required to complete mitosis in vertebrate cells are summarized.
Function and regulation of Aurora/Ipl1p kinase family in cell division
TLDR
This article provides potential links between aberrant regulation of Aurora/Ipl1p kinases and pathogenesis of human cancer and highlights the function and regulation ofora/I Pl1p family in mitosis.
A Field Guide to the Mps1 Family of Protein Kinases
TLDR
The Mps1 family of protein kinases has recently emerged as a critical regulator of genetic stability, because they regulate several processes central to mitotic fidelity.
Mitotic Catastrophe
Programmed cell death that occurs during mitosis caused by various types of cellular damage that lead to the failure of cell cycle checkpoint(s). Micronucleation and multinuceation can occur in cells
Polo-like kinases and the orchestration of cell division
TLDR
Polo-like kinases are increasingly recognized as key regulators of mitosis, meiosis and cytokinesis and their targeting to different cellular structures through interactions with phosphorylated docking proteins is uncovered.

It is becoming increasingly clear that the inactivation of the mitosis-promoting cyclin-dependent kinase, which marks the completion of the nuclear division cycle, is essential for actomyosin ring constriction and division septum assembly in both yeasts.

Four-dimensional control of the cell cycle
TLDR
This work focuses on how the locations of the main components of the cell-cycle machinery are regulated as part of the mechanism by which the cell controls when and how it replicates and divides.
