A check on tension

Abnormal numbers of chromosomes are found in the cells of about 90 percent of cancers, so understanding how healthy dividing cells ensure that each of their daughters receive an equal number of chromosomes is important to cancer biology. Until recently, scientists thought they had this figured out. Now, a paper published in Nature by Ludwig scientists shows a different paradigm — by targeting Aurora B kinase, their discovery has overturned the prevailing model of advanced cell division.
