Cell cycle deregulation and genomic instability play a major role in the aberrant cell proliferation that characterizes tumorigenesis. A novel role of the cyclin e isoform cyclin e2 in these processes is reported in the manuscript " Cyclin e2 induces genomic instability by mechanisms distinct from cyclin e1 " by Caldon et al. 1 in another issue of Cell… (More)
Chromosome segregation during meiosis is a complex process, which leads to production of four haploid gametes from two precursor cells. Reversible phosphorylation of proteins plays a crucial role in this process. The Schizosaccharomyces pombe Prp4 is an essential serine/threonine protein kinase, which belongs to the Clk/Sty family. To study the role of Prp4… (More)
