Aurora B kinase phosphorylates kinetochore proteins during early mitosis, increasing kinetochore–microtubule (MT) turnover and preventing premature stabilization of kinetochore–MT attachments. Phosphorylation of kinetochore proteins during late mitosis is low, promoting attachment stabilization, which is required for anaphase onset. The kinetochore protein(More)
The spindle assembly checkpoint is a surveillance mechanism that blocks anaphase onset until all chromosomes are properly attached to microtubules of the mitotic spindle. Checkpoint activity requires kinetochore localization of Mad1/Mad2 to inhibit activation of the anaphase promoting complex/cyclosome in the presence of unattached kinetochores. In budding(More)
Common bean (Phaseolus vulgaris L.) is an important, high-quality staple food that provides large amounts of protein and mineral micronutrients to the diets of people in many countries. Phytates are a storage form of organic phosphorus which is used by the plant in various stages of growth and development but can have certain anti-nutrient properties due to(More)
