Centrosomes: Please keep your social distance!


Accurate control of centrosome number is essential for proper chromosome segregation, and it is well established that centrosome abnormalities can trigger a p53-dependent cell cycle arrest. Two new studies published in The EMBO Journal demonstrate how PIDD1 is recruited to centrosomes and that the localization of PIDD1 to distal appendages of centrosomes is required for PIDDosome activation at clustered supernumerary centrosomes.
