A model for mitosis suggests that correct kinetochore-microtubule (KT-MT) attachments are stabilized by spatial separation of the attachment sites from Aurora B kinase through sister KT stretching. However, the spatiotemporal regulation of attachment stability during meiosis I (MI) in oocytes remains unclear. Here, we found that in mouse oocytes, Aurora B and C (B/C) are located in close proximity to KT-MT attachment sites after bivalent stretching due to an intrinsic property of the MI… CONTINUE READING
