In mitosis, chromosome segregation by the microtubule-based mitotic spindle ensures equal partitioning of the genome between the daughter cell. Cells use multiple mechanisms to ensure that chromosomes are segregated with high fidelity. The vast majority of cancer cells are aneuploid (contain the wrong number of chromosomes), indicating that one or more of these segregation fidelity mechanisms has failed. The resulting increase in chromosome segregation errors is termed
