Analysis of the effects of food and of digestive secretions on the small intestine of the rat. 1. Mucosal morphology and epithelial replacement. (1/11754)

A modified Roux-en-Y repositioning of rat small intestine was performed so that the proximal segment of bowel (A) received only bile and pancreastic secretions, the second (B) received food direct from the stomach, and these two segments drained into a third (C). Four to five weeks after operation, cell production was assessed by injection of vincristine into operated, sham-operated and unoperated rats, and counts of blocked metaphases were made on isolated microdissected crypts. Villus height, crypt depth, and the number of crypts per villus (crypt/villus ratio) were also measured. Most of segment A showed no significant differences from sham-operated intestine, although the normal proximo-distal gradient of villus height was abolished. At the distal end (near the anastomosis with segments B and C), crypt depth and cell production were increased. The villus height gradient in segment B was also abolished, although crypt depth and cell production were significantly increased, especially at the proximal end. Crypt/villus ratio was also increased. Segment C showed all the characteristics of small bowel promoted to a more proximal position: increased villus height, crypt depth and cell production. Increased crypt/villus ratio was also observed. These results are discussed in terms of the role of food and of digestive secretions in the control of mucosal morphology and epithelial replacement.  (+info)

Functions of cyclin A1 in the cell cycle and its interactions with transcription factor E2F-1 and the Rb family of proteins. (2/11754)

Human cyclin A1, a newly discovered cyclin, is expressed in testis and is thought to function in the meiotic cell cycle. Here, we show that the expression of human cyclin A1 and cyclin A1-associated kinase activities was regulated during the mitotic cell cycle. In the osteosarcoma cell line MG63, cyclin A1 mRNA and protein were present at very low levels in cells at the G0 phase. They increased during the progression of the cell cycle and reached the highest levels in the S and G2/M phases. Furthermore, the cyclin A1-associated histone H1 kinase activity peaked at the G2/M phase. We report that cyclin A1 could bind to important cell cycle regulators: the Rb family of proteins, the transcription factor E2F-1, and the p21 family of proteins. The in vitro interaction of cyclin A1 with E2F-1 was greatly enhanced when cyclin A1 was complexed with CDK2. Associations of cyclin A1 with Rb and E2F-1 were observed in vivo in several cell lines. When cyclin A1 was coexpressed with CDK2 in sf9 insect cells, the CDK2-cyclin A1 complex had kinase activities for histone H1, E2F-1, and the Rb family of proteins. Our results suggest that the Rb family of proteins and E2F-1 may be important targets for phosphorylation by the cyclin A1-associated kinase. Cyclin A1 may function in the mitotic cell cycle in certain cells.  (+info)

Thyroid hormone effects on Krox-24 transcription in the post-natal mouse brain are developmentally regulated but are not correlated with mitosis. (3/11754)

Krox-24 (NGFI-A, Egr-1) is an immediate-early gene encoding a zinc finger transcription factor. As Krox-24 is expressed in brain areas showing post-natal neurogenesis during a thyroid hormone (T3)-sensitive period, we followed T3 effects on Krox-24 expression in newborn mice. We analysed whether regulation was associated with changes in mitotic activity in the subventricular zone and the cerebellum. In vivo T3-dependent Krox-24 transcription was studied by polyethylenimine-based gene transfer. T3 increased transcription from the Krox-24 promoter in both areas studied at post-natal day 2, but was without effect at day 6. An intact thyroid hormone response element (TRE) in the Krox-24 promoter was necessary for these inductions. These stage-dependent effects were also seen in endogenous Krox-24 mRNA levels: activation at day 2 and no effect at day 6. Moreover, similar results were obtained by examining beta-galactosidase expression in heterozygous mice in which one allele of the Krox-24 gene was disrupted with an inframe Lac-Z insertion. However, bromodeoxyuridine incorporation showed mitosis to continue through to day 6. We conclude first, that T3 activates Krox-24 transcription during early post-natal mitosis but that this effect is extinguished as development proceeds and second, loss of T3-dependent Krox-24 expression is not correlated with loss of mitotic activity.  (+info)

Diverse developing mouse lineages exhibit high-level c-Myb expression in immature cells and loss of expression upon differentiation. (4/11754)

The c-myb gene encodes a sequence specific transactivator that is required for fetal hematopoiesis, but its potential role in other tissues is less clear because of the early fetal demise of mice with targeted deletions of the c-myb gene and incomplete of knowledge about c-myb's expression pattern. In the hematopoietic system, c-Myb protein acts on target genes whose expression is restricted to individual lineages, despite Myb's presence and role in multiple immature lineages. This suggests that c-Myb actions within different cell type-specific contexts are strongly affected by combinatorial interactions. To consider the possibility of similar c-Myb actions could extend into non-hematopoietic systems in other cell and tissue compartments, we characterized c-myb expression in developing and adult mice using in situ hybridization and correlated this with stage-specific differentiation and mitotic activity. Diverse tissues exhibited strong c-myb expression during development, notably tooth buds, the thyroid primordium, developing trachea and proximal branching airway epithelium, hair follicles, hematopoietic cells, and gastrointestinal crypt epithelial cells. The latter three of these all maintained high expression into adulthood, but with characteristic restriction to immature cell lineages prior to their terminal differentiation. In all sites, during fetal and adult stages, loss of c-Myb expression correlated strikingly with the initiation of terminal differentiation, but not the loss of mitotic activity. Based on these data, we hypothesize that c-Myb's function during cellular differentiation is both an activator of immature gene expression and a suppressor of terminal differentiation in diverse lineages.  (+info)

The oesophageal epithelium of the newborn opossum generally is two to three cells in depth and in some regions appears pseudostratified. By the 9th postnatal day the epithelium shows two distinct strata. Ciliated cells and occasional goblet cells also are observed within the epithelium during this stage and in subsequent stages. Cilia persist in the oesophagus of the adult opossum, but are restricted to the depths of the transverse folds found in the distal part of the organ. The epithelium covering the transverse folds of the adult likewise has an immature appearance. By 4-5 cm (ca. 20 days), the epithelium has assumed a more mature appearance and is of greater depth. This and later stages show three basic strata: a germinal layer, a spinous layer and, adjacent to the lumen, a flattened layer of cells that retain their nuclei. The epithelium throughout the postnatal period and in the adult does not undergo complete keratinization. The oesophageal glands begin as outgrowths from the epithelium just prior to 4-5 cm (ca. 20 days). The glands continue their development throughout the remainder of the postnatal period. The secretory units of the oesophageal glands of the the major portion of the secretory elements, and a light, rounded cell type which is less numerous and which occupies the terminal portions of the secretory units. Secretory material of the former appears complex, consisting of both neutral and acid glycoproteins. The secretory product of the light cell type is unknown at present. Both cell types are encompassed by myoepithelial cells. The relationship of the mitotic sequences to the observations made by microscopic examination of the developing oesophagus is discussed.  (+info)

Changes in the total number of neuroglia, mitotic cells and necrotic cells in the anterior limb of the mouse anterior commissure following hypoxic stress. (6/11754)

The effects of hypoxic stress (390 mmHg) on the total number of glia, cell division, and cell death in the anterior limb of the anterior commissure were studied. There was a significant (P less than 0-01) fall in the total number of glia following exposure to hypoxia at 390 mmHg for two days. No significant change was observed in the total number of glia between the hypoxic and recovery group one week after return to sea level (ca. 760 mmHg). No change was observed in the number of mitotic figures in the control, hypoxic or recovery groups, but significant falls were observed in the mean number of necrotic cells between both the control and hypoxic groups (P less than 0-05) and the hypoxic and recovery groups (P less than 0-012). The decrease in necrotic cells may be due to a large number of elderly and effete cells, which would normally have undergone degeneration over a period of weeks, dying rapidly after the onset of hypoxia, thus temporarily reducing the daily cell death rate.  (+info)

The preprophase band: possible involvement in the formation of the cell wall. (7/11754)

Numerous vesicles were observed among the microtubules of the "preprophase" band in prophase cells from root tips of Allium cepa. The content of these vesicles looks similar to the matrix of adjacent cell walls, and these vesicles often appear to be involved in exocytosis. In addition, the cell walls perpendicular to the plane of (beneath) the preprophase band are often differentially thickened compared to the walls lying parallel to the plane of the band. Our interpretation of these observations is that the preprophase band may direct or channel vesicles containing precursors of the cell wall to localized regions of wall synthesis. The incorporation of constituents of the cell wall into a narrow region defined by the position of the preprophase band may be a mechanism that ensures unidirecitonal growth of meristematic cells.  (+info)

Arsenic targets tubulins to induce apoptosis in myeloid leukemia cells. (8/11754)

Arsenic exhibits a differential toxicity to cancer cells. At a high concentration (>5 microM), As2O3 causes acute necrosis in various cell lines. At a lower concentration (0.5-5 microm), it induces myeloid cell maturation and an arrest in metaphase, leading to apoptosis. As2O3-treated cells have features found with both tubulin-assembling enhancers (Taxol) and inhibitors (colchicine). Prior treatment of monomeric tubulin with As2O3 markedly inhibits GTP-induced polymerization and microtubule formation in vitro but does not destabilize GTP-induced tubulin polymers. Cross-inhibition experiments indicate that As2O3 is a noncompetitive inhibitor of GTP binding to tubulin. These observations correlate with the three-dimensional structure of beta-tubulin and suggest that the cross-linking of two vicinal cysteine residues (Cys-12 and Cys-213) by trivalent arsenic inactivates the GTP binding site. Furthermore, exogenous GTP can prevent As2O3-induced mitotic arrest.  (+info)

This animation shows the process of cell mitosis. The various stages of cell division are shown, beginning with normal interphase, and passing through early and late prophase, metaphase, anaphase, and telophase, until the resultant two new daughter cells are formed. Two identical sets of chromosomes end up in each of these cells, along with equal amounts of cytoplasm and other organelles.

We investigated the occurrence of transcription during mitosis on an RNA pol II‐transcribed gene. We have found that the human cyclin B1 gene is actively transcribed at the mitotic stage. This result is surprising, since it is widely accepted that transcription is repressed during mitosis in higher eukaryotes. Interestingly, in fission yeast the rate of RNA synthesis is maintained during passage through mitosis (Baum et al., 1998). In mammalian cells, until now, no RNA pol II‐dependent transcription has been reported in mitotic cells, although there is evidence showing that 10-20% of the TFIID population remains associated with the condensed mitotic chromatin (Segil et al., 1996). Whether the transcription of the cyclin B1 gene occurs during all the four mitosis phases remains to be elucidated. The cyclin B1 protein is quickly degraded at the metaphase. Whenever a spindle checkpoint is imposed during metaphase, there is a reappearance of cyclin B1 protein due to a loss of cyclin B1 ...
Mitotic bookmarking transcription factors remain bound to chromosomes during mitosis and were proposed to regulate phenotypic maintenance of stem and progenitor cells at the mitosis-to-G1 (M-G1) transition. However, mitotic bookmarking remains largely unexplored in most stem cell types, and its functional relevance for cell fate decisions remains unclear. Here we screened for mitotic chromosome binding within the pluripotency network of embryonic stem (ES) cells and show that SOX2 and OCT4 remain bound to mitotic chromatin through their respective DNA-binding domains. Dynamic characterization using photobleaching-based methods and single-molecule imaging revealed quantitatively similar specific DNA interactions, but different nonspecific DNA interactions, of SOX2 and OCT4 with mitotic chromatin. Using ChIP-seq (chromatin immunoprecipitation [Chill combined with high-throughput sequencing) to assess the genome-wide distribution of SOX2 on mitotic chromatin, we demonstrate the bookmarking activity ...
Mitosis and Meiosis By: Erin Cole and Alexis Black 2 Cells Produced Mitosis includes one division that results in two daughter cells Mitosis produces diploid cells Consistent Chromosome Number:46 Mitosis is used to replace dead or damaged cells Somatic Cells are produced Daughter cells are identical to the parent cells One advantage of Mitosis for example would be the ability of skin cells to repair and replace themselves whenever they are damaged or die. A disadvantage of Mitosis is the fact that everything is the exact same, so if a disease was to come it would wipe out the entire population of that particular organism. 4 Cells Produced Meiosis includes two cell divisions resulting in four daughter cells. Meiosis produces haploid cells Meiosis is used to produce germ or sex cells for reproduction Consistent Chromosome Number: 23 Gamete cells are produced Daughter cells are NOT identical to parent cells One advantage of Meiosis is that it doesnt produce identical cells, so if a disease were to ...
After viewing the tutorial video and completing the Google Form, you should have an understanding of cell division by mitosis, including a knowledge of what occurs inside the cell during each of the phases of mitosis. A cell spends most of its life performing is normal functions. Most cells will spend a brief period of their life dividing. All cells come from other pre-existing cells. I call it the secret to the continuation of life. Without mitosis, life would not continue. Through this process a mother cell divides into two genetically identical daughter cells. This process if relatively simple, however it must occur just as prescribed in order to create daughter cells that are clones of the mother cell. Key vocabulay in this less includes: chromosome, chromatid, centriole, and spindle fibers.
Here, we found that SphK1 and its product S1P regulate mitosis. SphK1 promoted proper mitotic progression in a SAC-dependent manner, whereas increased SphK1 activity accelerated mitosis (Movie S1 and Movie S2). S1P overrode the mitotic spindle checkpoint, led to premature mitotic exit, and induced chromosome segregation defects through a pathway involving S1P5 and phosphatidylinositol 3-kinase (PI3K)-AKT signaling that was at least partially mediated by Polo-like kinase 1 (PLK1).. In summary, our study uncovers a previously unknown role for SphK1-S1P-S1P5 signaling in controlling proper mitotic progression through prometaphase to the metaphase-to-anaphase transition. More generally, our findings support the concept that cellular micro- environment plays an important role in coordination of mitosis and paves the way for future studies evaluating the relationship between extracellular signals, mitotic progression, and chromosomal stability.. ...

Mitosis-- Movie Narrative (Advanced Look). Cell division is required for an organism to grow, mature, and maintain tissues. During the mitotic phase, a cell will undergo mitosis to form two new nuclei and then divide to form two new individual cells during cytokinesis. Mitosis is the process of dividing the duplicated DNA of a cell into two new nuclei. Mitosis is split into distinct stages. The first stage is prophase; the DNA condenses, organizes, and the classic chromosome structure appears. Next comes prometaphase where microtubules attach to the chromosomes. This step is followed by metaphase where the chromosomes align. Metaphase is followed by anaphase where the chromosomes separate. Finally, during telophase nuclear membranes reappear around the two sets of chromosomes. Mitosis is now complete. After mitosis two new cells are formed by a process called cytokinesis.. Mitosis is only one part of what is called the cell cycle. For many eukaryotic cells, a cell is duplicated every 24 hours. ...
Precise inheritance of organelles during mitosis ensures the proper organisation and function of daughter cells. Inheritance of the Golgi complex, a single copy organelle, requires its disassembly before mitosis; Golgi disassembly is driven by mitotic inhibition of COPII-dependent export of proteins from endoplasmic reticulum exit sites (ERESs) to the Golgi. Helen Hughes and David Stephens have been investigating how ERESs are restored at the end of mitosis and, on page 4032, they report that Sec16A - the major human orthologue of Sec16, which defines the site of COPII vesicle budding in yeast - defines the site at which COPII-dependent budding reinitiates after mitosis. Using quantitative 4D imaging of HeLa cells stably expressing fluorescently labelled Sec16A, the authors show that, unlike all other COPII components, Sec16A remains associated with ERESs throughout mitosis. Moreover, Sec16A localisation is coincident with the reappearance of COPII puncta on mitotic exit. Hughes and Stephens ...
The constitutive heterochromatin of the centromere is marked by high levels of tri-methylated histone H3 Lysine 9 (H3K9) and binding of the heterochromatin protein 1 (HP1), which are thought to also have an important role in mitosis. Histone deacetylase inhibitors (HDACi) are a class of anticancer agents which affect many cellular processes, including mitosis. Here we examine the mechanism by which these drugs disrupt mitosis. We have used Drosophila embryos to demonstrate that treatment with the HDACi 100 μg/ml suberic bishydroxamic acid (SBHA, IC50 12 μg/ml), conditions that induce extensive H3K9 acetylation and aberrant mitosis in mammalian cells, induced aberrant mitosis in the absence of de novo transcription. We have examined the effect of the same treatment on the levels of H3K9 modification and HP1 binding in human cancer cells, and found only minor effects on H3K9 methylation and HP1 binding. Complete loss of tri-methylated H3K9 or depletion of HP1α and β had no effect on mitosis, ...
During interphase in all eukaryotic cells the double lipid bilayer of the nuclear envelope (NE) physically separates the chromosomes, and chromosome-related processes, from the cytoplasm and increases in area by 59% (Lim et al., 2007) as the nuclear volume doubles in preparation for mitosis (reviewed by Hetzer et al., 2005; Lim et al., 2007; Winey et al., 1997). In the open mitosis of animal cells, NE breakdown allows the spindle microtubules that are nucleated by the cytoplasmic centrosomes to attach to and then separate the chromosomes. In the closed mitosis of yeast, the centrosome equivalents, called spindle pole bodies (SPBs), are embedded in the NE and nucleate the formation of an intranuclear spindle (Ding et al., 1997). As the spindle elongates in anaphase B, nuclear volume remains constant but division of the roughly spherical nucleus into two smaller spheres, which occurs in less than 5 minutes, requires a rapid increase of 26% in NE area (Lim et al., 2007).. The nucleus, often thought ...
Introduction. Name: Nguyen Hong Hanh Class : 5X 1. Aim To investigate the effect of varying phases of mitosis on the duration of each of the phases by measuring the percentage number of cells 2. Introduction Mitosis is a form of nuclear division. It refers to the division of the nucleus that produces two daughter nuclei, each containing an identical set of chromosomes. It is also described as replicative division. During the process, the chromosomes in their replicated state; are precisely separated and their chromatids distributed one to each daughter nucleus. The process can be divided into four phases. These phases vary in terms of their duration. In a tissue where the cells are actively dividing, cells in different phases of mitosis can be easily observed. It can be assumed that when many cells are observed to be at a particular phase, that phase occurs over a long period and vice versa. Hypothesis -The percentage number of cells in prophase is highest while the percentage number of cells in ...
mītōˈsĭs, mĭ-, process of nuclear division in a living cell by which the carriers of hereditary information, or the chromosomes, are exactly replicated and the two copies distributed to identical daughter nuclei. Mitosis is almost always accompanied by cell division (cytokinesis), and the latter is sometimes considered a part of the mitotic process. The pattern of mitosis is fundamentally the same in all cells. However, while animal cells apparently divide by pinching into two separate cells, plant cells develop a cell plate, which becomes a cellulose cell wall between the two daughter cells. The importance of mitosis is the maintenance of the chromosomal set; each cell formed receives chromosomes that are alike in composition and equal in number to the chromosomes of the parent cell.. The Stages of Mitosis Mitosis is simply described as having four stages-prophase, metaphase, anaphase, and telophase; the steps follow one another without interruption. The entire four-stage division process ...

Mitosis is the process by which eukaryotic cells divide to form two equal daughter cells each with a copy of its genome. [86] Typically eukaryotic cells undergo one of the two forms of mitosis; higher eukaryotes (metazoans) go through Open Mitosis, while lower eukaryotes including yeast and other types of fungi undergo Closed Mitosis. [87] The distinction between open and closed mitosis can be made by focusing on the behaviour of the nuclear envelope which separates the nuclear contents from the cytoplasm and is split to form daughter nuclei. [86] Open mitosis is so named because the nuclear envelope completely breaks down at the transition from G2 to M stage of the cell cycle [87] and the nuclear content, including the genetic material, is open to mix with cytoplasmic macromolecules [88] until the nuclear envelope is reassembled after chromosomal segregation during telophase/G1. [87] [88] In contrast, during closed mitosis the nuclear envelope remains intact and mitosis continues within the ...

The suppressor of position effect variegation (PEV) locus Su-var(3)6 maps to 87B5-10. The breakpoints of deficiencies that define this interval have been placed on a 250-kb molecular map of the region. The locus is allelic to the ck19 complementation group previously shown to encode a type 1 serine-threonine protein phosphatase (PP1) catalytic subunit. When introduced into flies by P element-mediated transformation, a 5.8-kb genomic fragment carrying this gene overcomes the suppressor phenotype of Su-var(3)6(01) and recessive lethality of all mutations of the locus. Four of the mutant alleles at the locus show a broad correlation between high levels of suppression of PEV, a high frequency of aberrant mitosis and low PP1 activity in larval extracts. However, some alleles with low PP1 activity show weak suppression of PEV with a high frequency of abnormal mitosis, whereas others show strong suppression of PEV with normal mitosis. The basis for these discussed. ...

Cell division is of two types, mitosis and meiosis. Mitosis helps in taking us from a single celled zygote to an adult but meiosis produces sperms and eggs.
Essential component of the mitotic checkpoint. Required for normal mitosis progression. The mitotic checkpoint delays anaphase until all chromosomes are properly attached to the mitotic spindle. One of its checkpoint functions is to inhibit the activity of the anaphase-promoting complex/cyclosome (APC/C) by blocking the binding of CDC20 to APC/C, independently of its kinase activity. The other is to monitor kinetochore activities that depend on the kinetochore motor CENPE. Required for kinetochore localization of CENPE. Negatively regulates PLK1 activity in interphase cells and suppresses centrosome amplification. Also implicated in triggering apoptosis in polyploid cells that exit aberrantly from mitotic arrest. May play a role for tumor suppression ...
Flashback to memories of your early courses in biology. One term-mitosis-may come to mind. Perhaps you even recall diagrams or animations of chromosome pairs organizing themselves along an imaginary plane equidistant from the cells poles, followed by impressive parting and separation of the chromosome pairs. Two identical pairs of chromosomes are produced from one. Mitosis occurs in stages termed prophase, metaphase, and anaphase. Real time anaphase proves to be the shortest but most impressive event. In only a few minutes the paired chromosomes are seen to separate and move toward opposite ends of the cell. Soon there are two new duplicate cells, each with a nucleus. All phases of mitosis are completed in just one hour. The new cells begin production of proteins and organelles. Growth of cells predominates over cell duplication. Wondrous events of prenatal development during human gestation all depend on successful mitosis events. Campbell and Reese in their AP textbook Biology state, As a ...

In yeasts and animals, premature entry into mitosis is prevented by the inhibitory phosphorylation of cyclin-dependent kinase (CDK) by WEE1 kinase, and, at mitosis, WEE1 protein is removed through the action of the 26S proteasome. Although in higher plants WEE1 function has been confirmed in the DNA replication checkpoint, Arabidopsis wee1 insertion mutants grow normally, and a role for the protein in the G2/M transition during an unperturbed plant cell cycle is yet to be confirmed. Here data are presented showing that the inhibitory effect of WEE1 on CDK activity in tobacco BY-2 cell cultures is cell cycle regulated independently of the DNA replication checkpoint: it is high during S-phase but drops as cells traverse G2 and enter mitosis. To investigate this mechanism further, a yeast two-hybrid screen was undertaken to identify proteins interacting with Arabidopsis WEE1. Three F-box proteins and a subunit of the proteasome complex were identified, and bimolecular fluorescence complementation ...
Cells divide with remarkable fidelity, allowing complex organisms to develop and possess longevity. Checkpoint controls contribute by ensuring that genome duplication and segregation occur without error so that genomic instability, associated with developmental abnormalities and a hallmark of most human cancers, is avoided. S-phase checkpoints prevent cell division while DNA is replicating. Budding yeast Mec1p and Rad53p, homologues of human checkpoint kinases ATM/ATR and Chk2, are needed for this control system. How Mec1p and Rad53p prevent mitosis in S phase is not known. Here we provide evidence that budding yeasts avoid mitosis during S phase by regulating the anaphase-promoting complex (APC) specificity factor Cdc20p: Mec1p and Rad53p repress the accumulation of Cdc20p in S phase. Because precocious Cdc20p accumulation causes anaphase onset and aneuploidy, Cdc20p concentrations must be precisely regulated during each and every cell cycle. Catastrophic mitosis induced by Cdc20p in S phase ...

1. What is mitotic cell division used for in single-celled organisms? In multicellular organisms?. In single-celled organisms, mitotic cell division creates more genetically identical individuals (a clone of individuals). In multicellular organisms, mitotic cell division is used for growth, development, and tissue renewal as well as sometimes for asexual reproduction.. 2. How is DNA packaged in eukaryotic organisms?. In eukaryotic chromosomes, DNA is packaged around a main protein scaffold and wound around histone proteins.. 3. What is a chromosome? A chromatid? Chromatin?. A chromosome is a single strand of DNA organized around the packaging proteins. It has a single centromere. A chromatid is one of a pair of replicated DNA molecules still connected by a common centromere. Chromatin is the DNA + protein that makes up the chromosome. It was so named early in microscopy because it stained darkly (chromatin = colored stuff). 4. If there are 20 centromeres in a cell, how many chromosomes are ...
When the APC complex was inhibited by siRNA of APC3, the level of BubR1 remained constant for 60 min after nocodazole release in the presence of CHX, whereas it declined in control cells (Figure 8B). This result was corroborated by the finding from live‐cell assay for proteolysis that depleting APC3 expression abrogated the degradation of BubR1, and concomitantly cells did not enter anaphase for more than 5 h (Supplementary Figure 12 and Supplementary movie 7). When we compared the timing of BubR1 degradation with the degradation of other players in mitosis, such as Cdc20, Cyclin B, Plk1, and Aurora A, we found that BubR1 degradation began before that of Cyclin B (Supplementary Figure 13).. Next, we tested whether Cdc20 was responsible for BubR1 degradation during mitosis. To prevent the cells from exiting mitosis before the analysis began, HeLa cells were transfected with an expression construct to force moderate expression of Cyclin B. siRNA for GFP, Cdc20, or Cdh1 was simultaneously ...
Protein phosphatase which antagonizes mitotic cyclin-dependent kinase CDC28, the inactivation of which is essential for exit from mitosis. To access its substrates, is released from nucleolar sequestration during mitosis. Plays an essential in coordinating the nuclear division cycle with cytokinesis through the cytokinesis checkpoint. Involved in chromosome segregation, where it is required for meiosis I spindle dissambly as well as for establishing two consecutive chromosome segregation phases. Allows damaged actomyosin rings to be maintained to facilitate completion of cell division in response to minor perturbation of the cell division machinery. Inhibits transcription of ribosomal genes (rDNA) during anaphase and controls segregation of nucleolus by facilitating condensin targeting to rDNA chromatin in anaphase. Dephosphorylates SIC1, a CDC28 inhibitor, and SWI5, a transcription factor for SIC1, and induces degradation of mitotic cyclins, likely by dephosphorylating the activator of mitotic cyclin
Do you remember learning about mitosis? The human body needs to make about 300 million new cells per minute, and mitosis is part of the eukaryotic cell-division cycle (eukaryotic cells are cells that have their chromosomes packaged in a membrane bound nucleus). When human cells undergo mitosis, an exact copy of our forty-six chromosomes is made during a period called the Synthesis-phase (we actually have twenty-three pairs of chromosomes, as we receive twenty three chromosomes from our mom and twenty three chromosomes from our dad, 23 + 23 = 46). During the replication process, three billion DNA bases (adenine, thymine, guanine and cytosine) have to be copied in 4-6 hours without a single error! The new chromosomes are then separated into two identical sets, which become packaged into two new identical cell nuclei. Mitosis is a continuous process, but occurs in five identifiable steps or stages; 1) prophase, 2) prometaphase, 3) metaphase, 4) anaphase and 5) telephase. As you can see, this ...
Accurate chromosomal segregation is monitored by the mitotic checkpoint, and an increased rate of chromosomal missegregation leads to chromosomal instability (CIN). Here, we demonstrate that the HBV X protein (HBx) binds BubR1, a component of the mitotic checkpoint complex and co-localizes with BubR1 at the kinetochores. HBx binding to BubR1 attenuates the association between BubR1 and CDC20, an activator of the anaphase-promoting complex/cyclosome (APC/C) and induces slippage of mitotic arrest in the presence of microtubule poisons. In addition, HBx binding to BubR1 results in the accumulation of lagging chromosomes and chromosome bridges. In contrast, a C-terminally truncated HBx mutant (HBx(1-100)) fails to bind BubR1 and does not cause aberrant chromosomal segregation. This provides a novel mechanism for dysregulation of the mitotic checkpoint by a viral pathogen linking it to the accumulation of chromosomal instability in HBV-associated hepatocarcinogenesis.. ...
Mutations in homologous recombination (HR) genes BRCA1 and BRCA2 predispose to tumorigenesis. HR-deficient cancers are hypersensitive to Poly (ADP ribose)-polymerase (PARP) inhibitors, but can acquire resistance and relapse. Mechanistic understanding how PARP inhibition induces cytotoxicity in HR-deficient cancer cells is incomplete. Here we find PARP inhibition to compromise replication fork stability in HR-deficient cancer cells, leading to mitotic DNA damage and consequent chromatin bridges and lagging chromosomes in anaphase, frequently leading to cytokinesis failure, multinucleation and cell death. PARP-inhibitor-induced multinucleated cells fail clonogenic outgrowth, and high percentages of multinucleated cells are found in vivo in remnants of PARP inhibitor-treated Brca2(-/-); p53(-/-) and Brca1(-/-); p53(-/-) mammary mouse tumours, suggesting that mitotic progression promotes PARP-inhibitor-induced cell death. Indeed, enforced mitotic bypass through EMI1 depletion abrogates ...
Cancer would not occur were it not for mitosis. Mitosis is how cells reproduce. Cancer cells under go uncontrolled mitosis in which due to an abnormality in the cells DNA it replicates more rapidly than normal cells and continues to replicate unlike normal cells which go through mitosis a set number of times and die.

Skip to Next Section Cks is a small highly conserved protein that plays an important role in cell cycle control in different eukaryotes. Cks proteins have been implicated in entry into and exit from mitosis, by promoting Cyclin-dependent kinase (Cdk) activity on mitotic substrates. In yeast, Cks can promote exit from mitosis by transcriptional regulation of cell cycle regulators. Cks proteins have also been found to promote S-phase via an interaction with the SCFSkp2 Ubiquitination complex. We have characterized the Drosophila Cks gene, Cks30A and we find that it is required for progression through female meiosis and the mitotic divisions of the early embryo through an interaction with Cdk1. Cks30A mutants are compromised for Cyclin A destruction, resulting in an arrest or delay at the metaphase/anaphase transition, both in female meiosis and in the early syncytial embryo. Cks30A appears to regulate Cyclin A levels through the activity of a female germline-specific anaphase-promoting complex, CDC20

Anaphase II: We abbreviate diploid as 2n. During metaphase II, sister chromatids are condensed and aligned at the equator of the cell. Adult flamingos lay eggs that hatch into flamingo chicks c. Crossing-over between homologous chromosomes produces chromosomes with new associations of genes and alleles. The possible number of alignments, therefore, equals 2n, where n is the number of chromosomes per set. The arrangement of the paired chromosomes with respect to the poles of the spindle apparatus is random along the metaphase plate. During meiosis II, the sister chromatids within the two daughter cells separate, forming four new haploid gametes. Individual spindle fibres bind to a kinetochore structure on each side of the centromere. Meiosis II: This doubles the variability of gamete genotypes. Gregor Mendel determined his peas had two sets of alleles, one from each parent. The mechanics of meiosis II is similar to mitosis, except that each dividing cell has only one set of homologous ...

You didnt know me back when Harry Potter came out….I thought he was gorgeous as Cedric and cried when he died!. I agree with you Kristin, Edward is gorgeous, even as Cedric.. Edward is UGLLLLLLLLYYYYYYYYYYYY in the movies!!!!. i agree with jeremiah that the whole vampire books series is not that impressive.. sry i just dont see that being to exciting. I think that I am really really really ...
Cell division is the process by which new cells are formed for growth, repair, and replacement in the body. This process includes division of the nuclear material and division of the cytoplasm. All cells in the body (somatic cells), except those that give rise to the eggs and sperm (gametes), reproduce by mitosis. Egg and sperm cells are produced by a special type of nuclear division called meiosis in which the number of chromosomes is halved. Division of the cytoplasm is called cytokinesis.. Somatic cells reproduce by mitosis, which results in two cells identical to the one parent cell. Interphase is the period between successive cell divisions. It is the longest part of the cell cycle. The successive stages of mitosis are prophase, metaphase, anaphase, and telophase. Cytokinesis, division of the cytoplasm, occurs during telophase.. Meiosis is a special type of cell division that occurs in the production of the gametes, or eggs and sperm. These cells have only 23 chromosomes, one-half the ...
Mitosis is a eukaryotic process whereby a cell divides to produce two daughter cells identical to itself. Mitosis is the nuclear division that results in two daughter nuclei whose genetic material is identical with that of the original nucleus. In multicellular organisms, somatic cells undergo mitosis while germ cells undergo meiosis.. The mitotic phase is a relatively short action-packed period of the cell cycle. It alternates with the much longer interphase, where the cell prepares itself for division. Interphase is divided into three phases, G1 (first gap), S (synthesis), and G2 (second gap). During all three phases, the cell grows by producing proteins and cytoplasmic organelles. However, chromosomes are replicated only during the S phase. Thus, a cell grows (G1), continues to grow as it duplicates its chromosomes (S), grows more and prepares for mitosis (G2), and then finally enters mitosis. ...
Animal cells endure dramatic actin-dependent changes in shape as they progress through mitosis - they round up at mitotic entry, elongate at anaphase and split into two at cytokinesis. In this thesis I explore the role of Moesin, an actin-membrane crosslinker and the sole ERM protein expressed in Drosophila, in orchestrating rearrangements of the actin cortex and morphological changes in epithelial cells undergoing mitosis. To perform my studies I used the fly notum and sensory organ precursor (SOP) cells therein as a model system. In this thesis I show that Moesin is required for the stabilisation of the actomyosin cortex at metaphase. This mechanism is dependent upon phosphorylation of Moesin by the Slik kinase, which activates the ERM protein. Reduced levels of Moesin or Slik lead to myosin-II-driven cortical instabilities. Cortical stabilisation in mitotic SOP cells ensures the efficient accumulation of fate determinants at the plasma membrane. At mitotic exit, a pool of active, ...

The peptidyl-prolyl isomerase Pin1 recently revealed itself as a new player in the regulation of protein function by phosphorylation. Pin1 isomerizes the peptide bond of specific phosphorylated serine or threonine residues preceding proline in several proteins involved in various cellular events including mitosis, transcription, differentiation and DNA damage response. Many Pin1 substrates are antigens of the phosphodependent monoclonal antibody MPM-2, which reacts with a subset of proteins phosphorylated at the G2/M transition. As MPM-2 is not a general marker of mitotic phosphoproteins, and as most mitotic substrates are phosphorylated more than once, we used a different phosphodependent antibody, mAb CC-3, to identify additional mitotic phosphoproteins and eventual Pin1 substrates by combining affinity purification, MALDI-TOF mass spectrometry and immunoblotting. Most CC-3-reactive phosphoproteins appeared to be known or novel MPM-2 antigens and included the RNA-binding protein p54nrb/nmt55, the

MEDICAL ANIMATION TRANSCRIPT: Let's compare two types of cell division, mitosis and meiosis. While mitosis occurs all over the body in somatic cells, meiosis only occurs in the reproductive cells of the gonads in order to form gametes. The original cell in both mitosis and meiosis is diploid. Mitosis consists of one cell division, while meiosis consists of two stages of cell division called meiosis 1 and meiosis 2. Mitosis results in two diploid daughter cells. In contrast, meiosis results in four daughter cells that are haploid gametes. The two daughter cells resulting from mitosis are genetic duplicates of each other and the original cell. But each haploid gamete resulting from meiosis is genetically different from every gamete ever formed. [music ...

Every cell division in budding yeast is inherently asymmetric and counts on the correct positioning of the mitotic spindle along the mother-daughter polarity axis for faithful chromosome segregation. A surveillance mechanism named the spindle position checkpoint (SPOC), monitors the orientation of the mitotic spindle and prevents cells from exiting mitosis when the spindle fails to align along the mother-daughter axis. SPOC is essential for maintenance of ploidy in budding yeast and similar mechanisms might exist in higher eukaryotes to ensure faithful asymmetric cell division. Here, we review the current model of SPOC activation and highlight the importance of protein localization and phosphorylation for SPOC function.

Intervention of cancer cell mitosis by antitubulin drugs is among the most effective cancer chemotherapies. However, antitubulin drugs have dose-limiting side effects due to important functions of microtubules in resting normal cells and are often rendered to be ineffective by rapid emergence of resistance. Antimitotic agents with different mechanisms of action and improved safety profiles are needed as new treatment options. Mitosis-specific kinesin Eg5 represents an attractive anticancer target for discovering such new antimitotic agents, because Eg5 is essential only in mitotic progression and has no roles in resting, non-dividing cells. Here we show that a novel selective Eg5 inhibitor LY2523355 has broad target-mediated anticancer activity in vitro and in vivo. LY2523355 arrests cancer cells at mitosis and causes rapid cell death that requires sustained spindle-assembly checkpoint (SAC) activation with a required threshold concentration. In vivo efficacy of LY2523355 is highly ...
TY - JOUR. T1 - PFG acted as an inducer of premature senescence in TIG-1 normal diploid fibroblast and an inhibitor of mitosis in the HeLa cells. AU - Huang, Ying. AU - Ohno, Osamu. AU - Miyamoto, Kenji. PY - 2019/6/1. Y1 - 2019/6/1. N2 - Our previous work has reported an anti-proliferative compound from moutan cortex, paeoniflorigenone which can induce cancer-selective apoptosis. However, its anti-proliferative mechanism is still unknown. According to morphology changes (hypertrophy and flattening), we hypothesized that PFG can induce senescence or inhibit cell mitosis. Here we show that PFG can induce cellular senescence, evidenced by the expression of senescence-associated β-galactosidase, G0/G1 cell cycle arrest and permanent loss of proliferative ability, in normal TIG-1 diploid fibroblast but not cancerous HeLa cells. In cancerous HeLa cells, PFG inhibited proliferation by inducing S and G2/M cell cycle arrest and mitosis inhibition. DNA damage response was activated by PFG, interestingly ...

N2 - Calpains form a superfamily of Ca2+-dependent intracellular cysteine proteases with various isoforms. Two isoforms, μ- and m-calpains, are ubiquitously expressed and known as conventional calpains. It has been previously shown that the mammalian calpains are activated during mitosis by transient increases in cytosolic Ca2+ concentration. However, it is still unknown whether the activation of calpains contributes to particular events in mitosis. With the use of RNA interference (RNAi), we investigated the roles of calpains in mitosis. Cells reduced the levels of m-calpain, but not μ-calpain, arrested at prometaphase and failed to align their chromosomes at the spindle equator. Specific peptidyl ...
TY - JOUR. T1 - Mitosis in Beating Cardiac Muscle Cells from Newt Embryos In Vitro. AU - KANEKO, HIROYUKI. AU - SHIN‐ICHI, ABE. AU - ITO, SHIZUO. N1 - Copyright: Copyright 2016 Elsevier B.V., All rights reserved.. PY - 1981. Y1 - 1981. N2 - Cardiac muscle cells from newt embryos were cultured at relatively low cell density. Within 10 days in culture, 2 cell types (spindle and flat type) were distinguished both among beating and non‐beating cells. Mitosis in single beating cells was frequently observed both in spindle and flat cells. Some cells maintained almost constant contractile activities throughout the mitotic stages, while the others transiently stopped beating during mitosis, which accords well to the case in chick embryos (1). Ultra‐thin section shows the presence of myofibrils structure in a dividing cell, as shown in newborn rats (2, 3, 4), chick embryos (1, 5, 6, 7) and adult newts (8, 9). As a consequence of mitosis, 3 types (spindle, flat and mixed type) of beating colonies ...

Estimating the Time Needed for Mitosis INTRODUCTION In this lab, you will determine the approximate time it takes for plant and animal cells to pass through each of the four stages of mitosis. You will do this by counting the number of onion root tip cells and whitefish blastula cells in each of the four phases of mitosis and in interphase. Many cells in one specific phase indicate that a long period of time is required for completion of that phase. Few cells in a specific phase indicate a short period of time is required for completion of that phase. Mitosis, also called karyokinesis, is division of the nucleus and its chromosomes. It is followed by division of the cytoplasm known as cytokinesis. Both mitosis and cytokinesis are parts of the life of a cell called the cell cycle. Most of the life of a cell is spent in a non-dividing phase called Interphase. Interphase includes G1 stage in which the newly divided cells grow in size, S stage in which the number of chromosomes is doubled and ...
Mitosis is fundamental for all life. Decades of research have yielded comprehensive insight into how chromosomes, microtubules and centrosomes are remodeled to ensure the faithful segregation of genetic material during mitotic cell division. In addition to the correct genetic information, the forming daughter cells also need a full complement of membrane-bound organelles for their viability. Furthermore, it has recently emerged that spindle assembly and chromosome segregation depend on organelles and organelle-associated proteins. Thus, during mitosis, membrane-bound organelles need to be restructured and repositioned in highly specific ways to ensure successful cell division. However, the mechanisms of mitotic organelle remodeling have so far largely remained elusive. We previously identified new candidate organelle remodelers, among them REEP3 and REEP4, which control the distribution of endoplasmic reticulum (ER) during mitosis in a microtubule-dependent manner (Schlaitz et al., Dev Cell ...
In higher plants, microtubule-based and actin filament-based structures play important roles in mitosis and cytokinesis. Besides the mitotic spindle, the evolution of a band comprising cortical microtubules and actin filaments, namely, the preprophase band, is evident in plant cells. This band forecasts a specific division plane before the initiation of mitosis. During cytokinesis, another plant-specific cytoskeletal structure called the phragmoplast guides vesicles in the creation of a new cell wall. In addition, a number of cytoskeleton-associated proteins are reportedly involved in the formation and function of the preprophase band, mitotic spindle, and phragmoplast. This review summarizes current knowledge on the cytoskeleton-associated proteins that mediate the cytoskeletal arrays during mitosis and cytokinesis in plant cells and discusses the interaction between microtubules and actin filaments involved in mitosis and cytokinesis.
Automated visual-tracking systems of stem cell populations in vitro allow for high-throughput analysis of time-lapse phase-contrast microscopy. In these systems, detection of mitosis, or cell division, is critical to tracking performance as mitosis causes branching of the trajectory of a mother cell into the two trajectories of its daughter cells. Recently, one mitosis detection algorithm showed its success in detecting the time and location that two daughter cells first clearly appear as a result of mitosis. This detection result can therefore helps trajectories to correctly bifurcate and the relations between mother and daughter cells to be revealed. In this paper, we demonstrate that the functionality of this recent mitosis detection algorithm significantly improves state-of-the-art cell tracking systems through extensive experiments on 48 C2C12 myoblastic stem cell populations under four different conditions.

BackgroundNormal cell division is coordinated by a bipolar mitotic spindle, ensuring symmetrical segregation of chromosomes. Cancer cells, however, occasionally divide into three or more directions. Such multipolar mitoses have been proposed to generate genetic diversity and thereby contribute to clonal evolution. However, this notion has been little validated experimentally.Principal FindingsChromosome segregation and DNA content in daughter cells from multipolar mitoses were assessed by multiphoton cross sectioning and fluorescence in situ hybridization in cancer cells and non-neoplastic transformed cells. The DNA distribution resulting from multipolar cell division was found to be highly variable, with frequent nullisomies in the daughter cells. Time-lapse imaging of H2B/GFP-labelled multipolar mitoses revealed that the time from the initiation of metaphase to the beginning of anaphase was prolonged and that the metaphase plates often switched polarity several times before metaphase-anaphase
Flemmings findings revolutionized the field of cellular biology. Transient details of mitosis present in Flemmings drawings were difficult to preserve in live specimens. This need to see better detail drove an innovation of stains and dyes, greatly improving cellular microscopy techniques. A high percentage of mitotic phases were observed in wounds and scars, linking the process to repair and regeneration of damaged tissues. A break-down of the proper check-points in mitosis was found to lead to uncontrolled cell growth, a hallmark of cancer. The process of mitotic cell division is now a mainstay of introductory biology courses, the kind of thing whose sequential stages students write out on flashcards: Prophase, Metaphase, Telophase. However, this intricate process-perfected over millennia of evolution-may yet have additional mysteries to unveil. With recent advances innew and powerful visualization technology, a second look at this age-old process may yet lead to new insights ...

Mitosis and meiosis are certainly among the most spectacular events in all of biology. These processes are brought about by protein kinase complexes consisting of the cyclin-dependent kinase CDK1 (also called Cdc2) and a mitotic cyclin (in animals, an A-type cyclin or a B-type cyclin). The abrupt activation of cyclin-CDK1 at the onset of mitosis, and the abrupt inactivation of cyclin-CDK1 at the metaphase/anaphase transition near the end of mitosis, constitute the climax of the cell cycle and result in the division of one cell into two. In some circumstances, the eukaryotic cell cycle can be best described as a succession of contingent events. For example, in most somatic cells in culture, cell growth is followed by DNA replication, then more cell growth, then mitotic entry and chromosome congression, then sister chromatid separation and mitotic exit. Entry into a new phase of the cell cycle may depend upon the successful completion of some important event in the previous phase. E.g., the cell ...

Oscillatory protein phosphorylation regulates the major phase transitions of the cell division cycle. The overall amount of phosphorylation is especially high during mitosis (37, 38), and several large-scale studies have identified sets of phosphorylation sites present during mitosis (8, 11-13, 39). These studies, although mostly performed on a phosphoproteome scale, are still far from complete due to the complexity and variance in protein abundance within the proteome (40). Because phosphoproteomic studies usually rely on phosphopeptide enrichment, the information about the unphosphorylated proteins is lost, and it thus remains difficult to estimate the protein coverage in these studies. Here, we have taken a complementary approach to analyze mitotic phosphorylation within purified mitotic protein complexes. The much lower sample complexity allowed simultaneous analysis of phosphorylated and unphosphorylated peptides to obtain a measure of sequence coverage for each analyzed protein and ...
Two major checkpoints have been noted during mitosis, one is the G2M checkpoint and the other is the metaphase checkpoint. The G2M checkpoint works as the cells enter mitosis. It closely monitors microtubule dependant events, such as the separation of duplicated centrosomes at G2, and delays the G2-M transition in the presence of microtubule poisons. The metaphase checkpoint monitors the attachment of the mitotic spindle to kinetochores. In the presence of a single unattached kinetochore, the metaphase checkpoint halts the separation of sister chromatids and thereby provides additional time for spindle attachment. Thus, the metaphase checkpoint ensures a high fidelity of chromosome separation and prevents aneuploidy during mitosis. Figure 1 explains the mechanism of the metaphase checkpoint. Six checkpoint gene products (Mad1, Mad2, Mad3, Bub1, Bub3, and Mps1) appear to operate as checkpoint sensors and signal transducers.43,44 It is presumed that BubR1 is the functional orthologue of yeast ...

Figure 1. -Schematic diagram of mitotic recombination occurring in eye precursor cells with the ey-GAL4/UAS-FLP/GMR-hid (EGUF/hid) method. At the far left, a G2 premitotic photoreceptor precursor cell is depicted that is undergoing FLP-mediated mitotic recombination between nonidentical (homologous) chromosome arms. Premitotic photoreceptor precursors that undergo an even number of this type of recombination event follow the pathway indicated by the downward arrow and do not give rise to homozygous progeny cells. Premitotic photoreceptor precursors that undergo an odd number of these recombination events follow the pathway indicated by the upward arrow and have a 50% chance of giving rise to either heterozygous or homozygous progeny cells depending on the chromosome segregation pattern at cell division. Silent G2 recombination events between identical (sister) chromosome arms as well as G1 recombination events between homologous chromosomes will also be occurring, but are inconsequential with ...

In previous studies, we have reported that both MKK and ERK proteins are activated early in mitosis, and that ERK may modulate the phosphorylation of kinetochore proteins that are essential for metaphase to anaphase transitions (Shapiro et al. 1998; Tolwinski et al. 1999). Centromere protein E (CENP-E), an essential kinetochore protein, is a potential target that interacts with, and is phosphorylated by, ERK2 (Zecevic et al. 1998). However, the functional significance of ERK phosphorylation of CENP-E has not been determined. Furthermore, inhibition of MKK with chemical inhibitors supported a role for the Raf-1/MKK/ERK pathway in regulating the accumulation of mitotic cells after nocodazole treatment (Hayne et al. 2000). Recently, the ERK pathway has been implicated in regulating Golgi fragmentation during mitosis. During early mitosis, the Golgi complex disassembles, such that Golgi components can be distributed equally to each daughter cell and reassembled upon completion of mitosis. The ...
CENP-E has previously been shown to bind to kinetochores and microtubules and stabilize the interaction between them (Putkey et al., 2002), thereby contributing to silencing mitotic checkpoint signaling. Now, we have shown that CENP-E is also required in vitro and in vivo for maximal mitotic checkpoint signal generation at individual kinetochores, and is thus bifunctional in checkpoint signaling. We find that CENP-E stimulates recruitment of its binding partner BubR1 to kinetochores in HeLa cells and in MEFs. In addition, CENP-E directly stimulates the kinase (and autokinase) activity of BubR1 in vitro and in primary MEFs (Fig. 8). The simplest view is that CENP-E amplifies a basal mitotic checkpoint that is sufficient for long-term arrest when large numbers of kinetochores are unattached, but is of insufficient strength for one or a few kinetochores to produce a checkpoint signal that is able to sustain mitotic arrest.. Several lines of evidence offer strong support for our proposal that CENP-E ...

Replacing TI with T1 almost works, Brant. The next problem is that some journals dont play well with bookmarking services (Im looking at you, sciencedirect) so in order to get the citation info scraped, you have to bookmark the pubmed page. In that case, my UR fields contain the pubmed page I was on when I bookmarked the article, and the N1 field and the M3 fields contain the DOI. Some records also only contain a JO field, the abbreviated journal name, but 2collab needs a JF field. This means that instead of displaying Journal of Biological Chemistry 280, 3, 2309-2323, 21 January 2005., 2collab simply displays ncbi.nlm.nih.gov. For entries in the .RIS file added to Connotea via pubmed, the UR field contains the link to the pubmed abstract, but not the link to the actual article.. What I expect to happen is that the citation information is displayed beneath the title, and the DOI, if present, is used as the link for the title, falling back to using whatever is in the UR field only if theres ...
Mitosis is definitely a short story that needs to be read after the first book, otherwise I think thered be a gap of understanding, not just between what happened originally to cause the events in Mitosis, but also the lore surrounding Epics and Calamity, as well as an understanding of the characters themselves too.
