In polarised epithelial cells the midbody forms at the apical cell surface during cytokinesis. Once severed, the midbody is inherited by one of the daughter cells remaining tethered to the apical plasma membrane where it participates in non-cytokinetic processes, such as primary ciliogenesis. Here, we describe a novel method to physically remove the midbody remnant from cells and assess the possible effects caused by its loss (Bernabé-Rubio et al., 2016).
