RACK1 RNAi-treated embryo. This movie shows cell division without the presence of a key protein. The nucleus is the dark circle inside the cell; as the life cycle goes on, the nucleus replicates and each of the two nuclei move to opposite ends of the cell. The outer membrane furrows and seems to pinch in, but ultimately does not close itself off to form two complete cells. Instead, the cell is left with two complete nuclei, which is a fatal flaw.

CHO cells dividing with isolated midbodies surrounding them. The cells and midbodies are stained with anti-actin (red), anti-tubulin (green) and DAPI (blue). This image shows Chinese hamster ovary cells in the last stages of division. The red outer membrane is complete around each new cell, while the green midbody still remains between them. Isolated midbodies are also pictured in green around the cells to show the organelles in more detail. Photo date: May 2004
