RUVs drive chromosome decondensation after mitosis.

Condensation of chromosomes during mitosis is required for their segregation into daughter cells but must be reversed to allow for postmitotic functions. In this issue of Developmental Cell, Magalska et al. (2014) show that the ATPases RuvBL1/2 drive postmitotic chromatin decondensation, demonstrating that this is an active process.
