In the course of every single cell division, the genetic information on the chromosomes must be distributed equally between the newly developing daughter cells.

Susanne Hellmuth and Olaf Stemmann from the University of Bayreuth have now discovered a previously unknown mechanism that regulates the activity of the separase. The scientists have presented their study in the journal ‘Nature.’
