Spindle orientation and asymmetric cell fate

Abstract

Every organism begins as a single cell. Yet, in multicellular organisms, the progeny of that cell form a dazzling assortment of cell types. Generation of this diversity relies on asymmetric divisions. In contrast with symmetric divisions, which faithfully duplicate the characteristics of the parent cell, asymmetric divisions create two daughters that have… (More)
