Cover MIC April 2016

Microbial Cell – April 2016

Centromeres, as most other heterochromatic domains, localize at the nuclear periphery, which is redundantly controlled by several mechanisms in the fission yeast Schizosaccharomyces pombe. The cover is an art version of live-cell images of several nuclei lacking both the lamin-associated homolog Lem2 and the centromere-clustering factor Csi1. In those nuclei, the centromeres (green, GFP-fusion with the kinetochore protein Mis6) are delocalized from the nuclear envelope (red, mCherry-fusion with the nucleoporin protein Cut11). Image by Sigurd Braun and Ramón Ramos Barrales (Ludwig-Maximilians-University München, Germany); modified by MIC. The cover is published under the Creative Commons Attribution (CC BY) license.
