Nuclear mitotic apparatus protein (NuMA) has an indispensable function in normal mitosis as an organizer of the mitotic spindle. NuMA is a prominent component of interphase cell nuclear matrix but its role during interphase is largely unknown. We examined the presence of NuMA in several human tissues. The majority of cells were positive for NuMA but a few negative cell types were found, including spermatozoa, superficial keratinocytes, neutrophil granulocytes, syncytiotrophoblasts, and some… CONTINUE READING
