MOTIVATION The inherent promiscuity of small molecules towards protein targets impedes our understanding of healthy versus diseased metabolism. This promiscuity also poses a challenge for the pharmaceutical industry as identifying all protein targets is important to assess (side) effects and repositioning opportunities for a drug. RESULTS Here, we present(More)
The chromosome passenger complex (CPC) must relocate from anaphase chromosomes to the cell equator for successful cytokinesis. Although this landmark event requires the mitotic kinesin MKlp2, the spatiotemporal mechanistic basis remains elusive. Here, we show that phosphoregulation of MKlp2 by the mitotic kinase Cdk1/cyclin B1 coordinates proper mitotic(More)
Methylation of DNA CpG sites is a major mechanism of epigenetic gene silencing and plays important roles in cell division, development and carcinogenesis. One of its regulators is the 64-residue C-terminal Transcriptional Repressor Domain (the TRD) of MBD1, which recruits several repressor proteins such as MCAF1, HDAC3 and MPG that are essential for the(More)
