Cells Check DNA Segregation.

Dr. Manuel Mendoza and his team are researching cell division.  While conducting research they have discovered that during cell division if there is any problem with DNA replication, some chromatin bridge sends a signal that temporarily halts the cell division process.  This prevents the cell to become damaged.
During their research they have also discovered that there are some chromatin bridges that give no signals.  They believe that by understanding why some chromatin bridges halt cell division could lead to a prevention of cancer cells causing permanent damage.

  1. How would researcher be able to gind if chromatin bridges give off signals or not? I am curious.
