Epithelial organization and function depend on coordinated cell polarity. In developing tissues, proliferative epithelia maintain whole tissue polarity as individual cells undergo symmetric divisions. However, recent work has shown that cells in diverse epithelia remodel their polarity in a cell cycle-dependent manner. Here, we discuss the different mechanisms that drive mitotic polarity oscillations and their implications for tissue morphogenesis.
