    The tumor-suppressor protein BRCA1 is thought to act by preserving genomic integrity. In this issue of Cell, Joukov et al. (2006) demonstrate that the BRCA1/BARD1 heterodimer participates in mitotic spindle assembly, a process conducted by the GTPase Ran. Loss of this mitotic function might contribute to tumorigenesis.
