Drosophila neuroblasts divide to produce daughters of distinct fate by asymmetrically localizing cell fate determinants and segregating them preferentially to one daughter. An intact F-actin cytoskeleton was known to be required, and now a myosin VI (Jaguar) has been shown to be necessary for basal targeting of cell fate determinants in neuroblasts (Petritsch et al., 2003).
