Spindle elongation in pericentromeric cohesion mutants. US3329 (wild-type), US3329Δmcm17 (chl4) and US3329Dmcm21 (mcm21) cells were arrested by alpha-factor in G1 and released in fresh YEPD containing 0.2 M HU for 3 hours at 30°C. A, B and C. The left panel shows fields of mitotic spindles of respectively wild-type, chl4 and mcm21 cells treated with HU for 3 h. The corresponding distributions of spindle lengths (n = 113, 115 and 108 respectively) are shown.
