Dividing cells are kept in place by a newly discovered cellular structure
New cell structure discovered - life short science news

Cell biologists have discovered a new cell structure that plays a role in cell division. It is a protein complex that interacts with surrounding proteins to keep the cells in place when they divide. Other such complexes had already been found, but the newly discovered structure is unique in that it stays intact during cell division, whereas the others dissolve. The complex also makes sure that the daughter cells end up at their proper location after cell division. The discovery has been made using human cells, and future research has to show how the complex functions in living animals and humans.
