Dividing in Epithelia: Cells Let Loose during Cytokinesis.
Institute for Research in Immunology and Cancer (IRIC), Université de Montréal, P.O. Box 6128, Station Centre-Ville Montréal QC, H3C 3J7, Canada.
Epithelia must maintain barrier function-protecting interior tissues from a variable external environment-even while their cells divide. In the previous issue of Developmental Cell, Guillot and Lecuit (2013), Founounou et al. (2013), and Herszterg et al. (2013) present complementary findings on the regulation of adhesion and its impact on cell division.
