Abnormal chromosome content — also known as aneuploidy — is the most common characteristic of human solid tumours. It has therefore been proposed that aneuploidy contributes to, or even drives, tumour development. The mitotic checkpoint guards against chromosome mis-segregation by delaying cell-cycle progression through mitosis until all chromosomes have successfully made spindle-microtubule attachments. Defects in the mitotic checkpoint generate aneuploidy and might facilitate tumorigenesis… Expand
