The timing of protein kinase activation events in the cascade that regulates mitotic progression in Tradescantia stamen hair cells.

Stamen hair cells of the spiderwort plant Tradescantia virginiana exhibit unusually predictable rates of progression through mitosis, particularly from the time of nuclear envelope breakdown (NEBD) through the initiation of cytokinesis. The predictable rate of progression through prometaphase and metaphase has made these cells a useful model system for the… (More)
