Architecture of the Trypanosoma brucei nucleus during interphase and mitosis.
The structural basis of mitosis, spindle organisation and chromosome segregation, in the unicellular parasite Trypanosoma brucei is poorly understood. Here, using immunocytochemistry, fluorescent in situ hybridisation and electron microscopy, we provide a detailed analysis of mitosis in this parasite. We describe the organisation of the mitotic spindle during different stages of mitosis, the complex ultrastructure of kinetochores and the identification of a potential spindle-organising centre...Expand abstract
