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...
