During what phase of the cell cycle does mitosis and cytokinesis occur? Image source: The spindle assembly checkpoint in space and time As you can see, there are some extremely complex pathways at play here. However, at the core of all of these pathways, is the mitotic checkpoint complex (MCC), and I'll discuss how this regulates "correct" mitotic divisions. First, some terminology to avoid later confusion: During mitosis and meiosis, the spindle assembly checkpoint acts to maintain genome stability by delaying cell division until accurate chromosome segregation can be guaranteed. Accuracy requires that chromosomes become correctly attached to the microtubule spindle apparatus via their kinetochores. The spindle checkpoint is a key regulator of chromosome segregation in mitosis and meiosis. Its function is to prevent precocious anaphase onset before chromosomes have achieved bipolar attachment to the spindle. The spindle checkpoint or SAC (for spindle assembly checkpoint), also known as mitotic checkpoint, is a cellular mechanism responsible for detection of: correct assembly of the mitotic spindle; attachment of all chromosomes to the mitotic spindle in a bipolar manner; congression of all chromosomes at the metaphase plate. During the spindle checkpoint, the anaphase promoting complex triggers a cascade of events that ultimately leads to the separation of sister chromatids. Using your The highly conserved spindle assembly checkpoint (SAC) controls the onset of anaphase by preventing premature segregation of the sister chromatids of the duplicated genome, to the spindle poles. In contrast, the spindle position checkpoint (SPOC), in the budding yeast S. cerevisiae, ensures that during asymmetric cell division mitotic exit does not ... disruption of spindle assembly or spindle function ...
