Centrosome impairments and consequent cytokinesis defects are possible mechanisms of taxane drugs.


Taxol and taxotere are two of the most promising anticancer drugs. To determine the mechanisms responsible for cell death after exposure to low doses of taxane, PC3 cells were treated with taxol and taxotere, and observed with immunofluoroscence microscopy. Pericentriolar material dissociation and blockage of normal centrosome separation were found to… (More)
