Apicomplexan cell cycle flexibility: centrosome controls the clutch

 2015 Apr 19. pii: S1471-4922(15)00079-3. doi: 10.1016/ [Epub ahead of print]


The centrosome serves as a central hub coordinating multiple cellular events in eukaryotes. A recent study in Toxoplasma gondii revealed a unique bipartite structure of the centrosome, which coordinates the nuclear cycle (S-phase and mitosis) and budding cycle (cytokinesis) of the parasite, and deciphers the principle behind flexible apicomplexan cell division modes.
