Although chromosome fragments lacking a centromere would be expected to show severe defects in their segregation during anaphase, they do exhibit poleward movement by an unclear mechanism. Karg et al. now show how microtubules and the chromokinesin Klp3a can work together to successfully segregate chromosome fragments to daughter nuclei.
