Scc1/Rad21/Mcd1 is required for sister chromatid cohesion and kinetochore function in vertebrate cells.
Proteolytic cleavage of the cohesin subunit Scc1 is a consistent feature of anaphase onset, although temporal differences exist between eukaryotes in cohesin loss from chromosome arms, as distinctExpand

Elasticity mapping of living fibroblasts by AFM and immunofluorescence observation of the cytoskeleton.
Using the force mapping mode of atomic force microscopy (AFM), we measured spatial distribution of elastic moduli of living mouse fibroblasts (NIH3T3) in a physiological condition. The nuclearExpand

Myosin-Va regulates exocytosis through the submicromolar Ca2+-dependent binding of syntaxin-1A.
Myosin-Va is an actin-based processive motor that conveys intracellular cargoes. Synaptic vesicles are one of the most important cargoes for myosin-Va, but the role of mammalian myosin-Va inExpand
