    • Spindle-independent condensation-mediated segregation of yeast ribosomal DNA in late anaphase 

      Machín, Felix; Torres Rosell, Jordi; Jarmuz, Adam; Aragón, Luis (The Rockefeller University Press, 2005)
      Mitotic cell division involves the equal segregation of all chromosomes during anaphase. The presence of ribosomal DNA (rDNA) repeats on the right arm of chromosome XII makes it the longest in the budding yeast genome. ...
    • Transcription of ribosomal genes can cause nondisjunction 

      Machín, Felix; Torres Rosell, Jordi; Piccoli, Giacomo De; Carballo, Jesús A.; Cha, Rita S.; Jarmuz, Adam; Aragón, Luis (The Rockefeller University Press, 2006)
      Mitotic disjunction of the repetitive ribosomal DNA (rDNA) involves specialized segregation mechanisms dependent on the conserved phosphatase Cdc14. The reason behind this requirement is unknown. We show that rDNA ...
