Evidence for oxylipin synthesis and induction of a new polyunsaturated fatty acid hydroxylase activity in Chondrus crispus in response to methyljasmonate.
Signaling cascades involving oxygenated derivatives (oxylipins) of polyunsaturated fatty acids (PUFAs) are known to operate in response to external stimuli. The marine red alga Chondrus crispus usesExpand

Relocation of Aurora B and survivin from centromeres to the central spindle impaired by a kinesin-specific MKLP-2 inhibitor.
Mitotic kinesin-like protein 2 (MKLP-2), a member of the kinesin-6 family, is essential for cytokinesis. We screened 8900 small molecules for inhibition of the ATPase activity of MKLP-2 andExpand

Further investigation of Paprotrain: Towards the conception of selective and multi-targeted CNS kinase inhibitors.
Starting from a known compound, identified as the first inhibitor of the kinesin MKLP-2 and named Paprotrain, we have investigated its reactivity to produce through photochemistry a potent nanomolarExpand
