New publication in Current Biology for Baum Lab

In her recent publication in Current Biology, Chantal Roubinet (Baum lab) has shown that the nuclear compartment is maintained throughout mitosis in Drosophila neural stem cells. Furthermore, the compartment is asymmetrically remodeled to generate sibling nuclei that differ in size, envelope composition and chromatin organisation. Importantly, these asymmetries arise prior nuclear import of cell fate determinants, suggesting that asymmetric nuclear division contributes along with the polarity to cell fate acquisition and cell diversity.
