Cell biology: An open solution for closed mitosis


At the end of mitosis, cells must remodel their nuclear envelope to produce two identical daughter nuclei. Two new studies using Schizosaccharomyces pombe provide insight into how compartmentalized nuclear pore complex disassembly allows cells that undergo closed mitosis to achieve nuclear division.
