Summary note
This volume focuses on the structural aspects of cell division, ranging from nuclear envelope breakdown to cytokinesis and partitioning of the cytoplasm. It examines spindle assembly and chromosome behavior in mitosis and meiosis, centromere and kinetochore structure and regulation, telomeres, the role of centrosomes, and mechanisms by which overall regulation is achieved. Written as a companion volume to Cell Cycle Control, this book provides an up-to-date account of developments in this exciting area of cell biology.

Contents
Cell cycle checkpoints: safe passage through mitosis-- Mitotic changes in the nuclear envelope-- Poles apart? spindle pole bodies and centrosomes differ in ultrastructure yet their function and regulation are conserved-- Microtubule dynamics, molecular motors, and chromosome behavior-- A moveable feast: the centromere-kinetochore complex in cell division-- Telomeres: structure, synthesis, and cell cycle regulation-- Meiosis: chromosome behavior and spindle dynamics-- Inheritance of the cytoplasm during cell division-- Cytokinesis.
