Chromosome motility anaphase

Model: Katanin, Spastin, and Fidgetin function distinctly to drive Pacman-flux chromosome motility during anaphase.

(A) At centrosomes, Spastin and Fidgetin sever MTs from the protective ?-TuRCs associated with centrosomes/poles. The newly generated MT ends can now disassemble; minus-end disassembly of the released MT is promoted by Kinesin-13 at the poles. Plus-end disassembly eliminates the short remaining MT and allows ?-TuRCs turnover at centrosomes.

(B) At chromosomes, Katanin severs near the plus ends of spindle MTs, generating new free ends. This activity would remove any protective caps stabilizing plus ends. Kinesin-13 at centromeres/kinetochores then stimulates minus-end disassembly, enabling chromosomes to move poleward by Pacman.
