    ..We discuss the rationale for a bipartite checkpoint mechanism in which a core Mad1(MDF-1)/Mad2(MDF-2) signal generated at kinetochores is integrated with a separate cytoplasmic Mad3(SAN-1)/BUB-3-based pathway. ..

    ..Thus, the conversion from initial dynein-mediated, lateral attachments to correctly oriented, Ndc80-mediated end-coupled attachments is actively controlled. ..
