Cytokinesis in animal cells by R. Rappaport

By R. Rappaport

This publication strains the heritage of a few of the foremost principles within the box and provides an account of our present wisdom of animal cytokinesis. It includes descriptions of department in several forms of cells and the proposed reasons of the mechanisms underlying the seen occasions. the writer additionally describes and explains experiments devised to check telephone department theories. The forces worthwhile for cytokinesis now seem to originate from the interplay of linear polymers and motor molecules that experience roles in strength creation, movement and form switch that ensue in different levels of the biology of the mobilephone. The localization of the force-producing mechanism to a limited linear a part of the subsurface is as a result of the mitotic equipment, an identical cytoskeletal constitution that insures orderly mitosis.

Example text

Schroeder (1981a) postulated, as had Wolpert, that the generalized increase in tension at the surface that is not directly associated with mitosis constitutes an important motive force. He proposed that, as in Wolpert's hypothesis, the regional differences arise by a relaxing effect of the asters on the poles. The tension inequality subsequently causes equatorial constriction. It also causes a repositioning of a hypothetical cortical contractile lattice away from the vicinity of the aster and toward the region of the furrow.

The possi21 22 CYTOKINESIS IN ANIMAL CELLS bilities for theorization were enormous. Simple observation of the event in either living or fixed cells did not reveal whether events were active or passive. The chemical and structural basis of the mitotic apparatus and other visible organelles was unknown, and the significance of the form and proportion changes that both the mitotic apparatus and the whole cell undergo, as well as the obligatory increase in cell surface area, could be construed in many ways.

Astral cleavage theories In contrast with traction fiber theories, astral cleavage theories were based upon observation of experimentally manipulated cells. Teichmann (1903) produced sea urchin egg cells with more than two asters by inducing polyspermy and by selectively suppressing cytokinesis with cold, ether, and shaking. Because mitosis was not inhibited, each cycle doubled the number of asters present in a single cell so that when suppression was discontinued, he could see the way in which furrowing occurred when the number and arrangement of asters were abnormal.
