Retention of the regulatory landscape in mitosis

Differential recruitment of proteins to chromatin is fundamental in eukaryotes to regulate transcription, replication, and cell division. Yet it is unclear how the regulatory landscape is transmitted through cell division since many proteins are thought to be evicted during mitosis, when the chromosomes condensate. A recently published study by the Schübeler group suggests that many transcription factors actually remain bound and could serve as ‘bookmark’ throughout mitosis. Read more
