• spindles
  • Observation of untreated PtK1 cells that formed tripolar or tetrapolar spindles revealed that they progressed through mitosis, on average, at the normal rate. (biologists.org)
  • protein
  • The retinoblastoma protein: Rb) inhibits both cell division and apoptosis, but the mechanism by which Rb alternatively regulates these divergent outcomes remains poorly understood. (wustl.edu)
  • The stress-regulated mitogen activated protein kinase: MAPK) p38 also phosphorylates Rb, but it does so in a cell cycle-independent manner that is associated with apoptosis rather than with cell division. (wustl.edu)
  • We report that ARHGAP19, a previously uncharacterized protein, is predominantly expressed in hematopoietic cells and is a critical actor of T lymphocyte division. (biologists.org)
  • Marian Blanca Ramírez from the CSIC in Spain has been studying the effects of LRRK2, a protein associated with Parkinson's disease, on cell motility. (biologists.org)
  • crucial
  • For the accurate inheritance of genetic information, it is crucial that furrow formation is initiated at the cell equator between segregating chromosomes and that this occurs after chromatin has cleared the cleavage plane. (bl.uk)
  • Asymmetry and polarization are crucial not only for development but also for almost every functional aspect of cells. (plantcell.org)
  • Proper spatial and temporal specification of cells during development is crucial for the generation of cellular diversity in the nervous system of complex organisms. (zfin.org)
  • migration
  • A Travelling Fellowship from Journal of Cell Science allowed her to spend time in Prof Maddy Parson's lab at King's College London, learning new cell migration assays and analysing fibroblasts cultured from individuals with Parkinson's. (biologists.org)
  • growth
  • They maintain impressive growth rates of up to 4 μm/s for several millimeters or centimeters, depending on the species, without ever dividing and are one of the fastest elongating cells in nature. (plantcell.org)
  • cycle
  • p38 bypasses the cell cycle-associated hierarchical phosphorylation and directly phosphorylates Rb on Ser567, which is not phosphorylated during the normal cell cycle. (wustl.edu)
  • study
  • In the present study phytochemicals like eugenol, trans- cinnamic acid, 4-formyl cinnamic acid, naringenin and caffeic acid were were tested for their potential to inhibit cell division. (niscair.res.in)
  • shape
  • In addition to its effects on cell shape changes, silencing of ARHGAP19 in lymphocytes also impairs chromosome segregation. (biologists.org)
