The mitotic checkpoint monitors the attachment of kinetochores to microtubules and delays anaphase onset until all sister kinetochores have become attached to opposite poles [1, 2]. Correct bipolar attachment leads to kinetochore deformation and tension and satisfies the checkpoint [3-6]. What prevents mitotic checkpoint reactivation when sister centromeres(More)
Sister chromatid cohesion mediated by the cohesin complex is essential for chromosome segregation during cell division. Using functional genomic screening, we identify a set of 26 pre-mRNA splicing factors that are required for sister chromatid cohesion in human cells. Loss of spliceosome subunits increases the dissociation rate of cohesin from chromatin(More)
Human Cdc14A is an evolutionary conserved dual-specificity protein phosphatase that reverses the modifications effected by cyclin-dependent kinases and plays an important role in centrosome duplication and mitotic regulation. Few substrates of Cdc14A have been identified, some of them with homologues in yeast that, in turn, are substrates of the(More)
The Cdc14 family of serine-threonine phosphatases antagonizes CDK activity by reversing CDK-dependent phosphorylation events. It is well established that the yeast members of this family bring about the M/G1 transition. Budding yeast Cdc14 is essential for CDK inactivation at the end of mitosis and fission yeast Cdc14 homologue Flp1/Clp1 down-regulates(More)
Budding and fission yeast Cdc14 homologues, a conserved family of serine-threonine phosphatases, play a role in the inactivation of mitotic cyclin-dependent kinases (CDKs) by molecularly distinct mechanisms. Saccharomyces cerevisiae Cdc14 protein phosphatase inactivates CDKs by promoting mitotic cyclin degradation and the accumulation of a CDK inhibitor to(More)
Two closely connected mechanisms safeguard the fidelity of chromosome segregation in eukaryotic cells. The mitotic checkpoint monitors the attachment of kinetochores to microtubules and delays anaphase onset until all sister kinetochores have become attached to opposite poles. In addition, an error correction mechanism destabilizes erroneous attachments(More)
The aim of this study was to evaluate the ability of a nested PCR system to detect Salmonella senftenberg in raw oysters. The specific primers of the PCR were derived from the invA gene sequence, essential for Salmonella invasiveness into epithelial cells. First, for the extraction of DNA, four methods (guanidine isothiocyanate, E.Z.N.A. Mollusc Kit,(More)
