  • Covers both historical and recent developments in our understanding of mitosis and its regulation
  • Contributors describe how sister chromatids attach to one another and to the spindle apparatus; how the spindle microtubules nucleate, elongate, pause, and shrink; and how kinetochores and centrosomes serve as anchor and control points
  • Surveys the biochemical machinery that coordinates the three main regulatory stages-entry into mitosis, sister chromatid separation, and mitotic exit-in both space and time
  • Cellular changes that occur during cytokinesis are also reviewed in detail, as are the key differences between mitosis and meiosis
