    ..Yet, this dispersion did neither trigger apoptosis nor affect nuclear envelope assembly. No intrinsic size control for the nucleus seems to exist in the early embryo. ..

    ..Together, our findings indicate that PP2A-SUR-6 promotes centriole assembly by protecting ZYG-1 and SAS-5 from degradation. ..

    ..Furthermore, partial RNA-interference (RNAi)-mediated inactivation experiments suggest that both sas-5 and zyg-1 are dose-dependent regulators of centrosome duplication. ..

    ..Therefore, HsSAS-6 is also required for centrosome duplication, indicating that the function of SAS-6-related proteins has been widely conserved during evolution. ..

    ..Disruption of either domain leads to centriole duplication failure in worm embryos, indicating that large SAS-5 assemblies are necessary for function in vivo. ..

    ..Thus, both centriolar and pericentriolar material proteins contribute to centriole assembly. ..
