During embryonic cell divisions, cell size changes rapidly. Rathbun et al. identify in zebrafish embryos that mitotic centrosomes scale with changes in cell size. In addition, an embryonic cell spindle has asymmetric in size mitotic centrosomes, where the largest mitotic centrosome is placed toward the embryo center in a PLK1/4-dependent manner.
