During mitosis, the metazoan nucleus is disassembled and transcription ceases globally. Upon mitotic exit, how are transcriptional patterns faithfully re-established to maintain cell identity and differentiation state? I will discuss our work aimed at understanding mechanisms of mitotic „bookmarking” and re-initiation of transcription during G1 entry.
