CENP-F stabilizes kinetochore-microtubule attachments and limits dynein-mediated corona stripping, a key step in accurate chromosome segregation


Phil Auckland (McAinsh lab) reveals how the human kinetochore protein CENP-F helps hold onto microtubules with one hand, while limiting the motorised stripping of corona components with the other (see figure). We find that over stripping leads to inefficient chromosome biorientation - a key step in accurate chromosome segregation.
