  • Fixed DAPI-stained cells were examined for the frequency of mitotic defects shown in Figure 3. Unequal, cells containing segregated chromatin of unequal intensity; stretched, cells with a longer chromatin mass than is observed in wild type; asymmetric, cells in which two or more chromatin masses were observed at one end of the cell (with or without a septum). The percentage of cells in each category is given and the total number of cells scored is shown in the last column.

  • a Strains are as described in Table 2.
