Harvard Medical School Researchers Identify Four Human Genes Essential To Cell Division; Discovery Yields New Target For Cancer Therapies

...- the second cycle. The APC is one of the mitotic ringleaders. "It is absolutely requiredfor cell proliferation," says Yu. The protein complex drives a dividing cellfrom the metaphase stage of mitosis into anaphase--from the point in which thechromosomes find their partner and gather in pairs in the...

...apidly evolving DNA. Normally, the elements of the mitotic segregation machinery would be expected to be highly conserved, as are other essential cellular machines, such as ribosomes. But the central question with centromeric DNA is why it hasn't found some optimal sequence and just stayed there. A key to st...
