"Nuclear organization and asymmetric cell division"
The nucleus is the largest organelle in the cell and its position relative to the rare-front axis of the cell or relative to other organelles is carefully regulated in space and time. However, the functional relevance of nuclear positioning is poorly understood. At the seminar I will present unpublished experiments from my lab showing that polarized positioning of the nucleus prior to cell division affects the distribution of nuclear content during mitosis. The consequence of this for asymmetric cell division and cell fate determination will be discussed.
