Potential Role of BRCA 2 in a Mitotic Checkpoint after Phosphorylation by hBUBR 11
TLDR
The results suggest that BRCA2 protein might be involved in a mitotic checkpoint in vivo after it has been phosphorylated by hBUBR1.

TLDR
Emerging evidence is providing valuable insights into the molecular circuitry through which p19 modulates p53 activity as part of a checkpoint response to oncogenic, hyperproliferative signals.
Potential role of BRCA2 in a mitotic checkpoint after phosphorylation by hBUBR1.
TLDR
The results suggest that BRCA2 protein might be involved in a mitotic checkpoint in vivo after it has been phosphorylated by hBUBR1.
Identification of a Functional Domain in a GADD45-mediated G2/M Checkpoint*
TLDR
The binding of GADD45 to Cdc2 was insufficient to induce a G2/M arrest, and additional activity contributed by the DEDDDR residues may be necessary to regulate the G1/M checkpoint.
Shrinking Daughters: Rlm1-Dependent G1/S Checkpoint Maintains Saccharomyces cerevisiae Daughter Cell Size and Viability
TLDR
It is proposed that duplication of an “actin-organizing center” in late G1 may be required both to progress through START and to reestablish the actin cytoskeleton in daughter cells.
Topoisomerase III Acts Upstream of Rad53p in the S-Phase DNA Damage Checkpoint
TLDR
It is shown that top3Δ mutants exhibit a RAD24-dependent delay in the G2 phase, suggesting a possible role for Top3p in the resolution of abnormal DNA structures or DNA damage arising during S phase, and a model proposing a role for these proteins in S phase is presented.
MPH1, a yeast gene encoding a DEAH protein, plays a role in protection of the genome from spontaneous and chemically induced damage.
TLDR
The characterized MPH1 gene from Saccharomyces cerevisiae, which carries the signature motifs of the DEAH family of helicases, suggests that MPH1 is not part of a hitherto known repair pathway.
Synergistic Effects of BubR1 and p53 Deficiency in Tumor Formation
TLDR
The data indicates that the loss of BubR1 synergizes with p53 deficiency to increase the susceptibility of cancer formation in mice and alters the tumor spectrum of the p53 deficient mice.
The MRE11-RAD50 Complex
TLDR
The MRE11-RAD50 protein complex, with homologs in bacteria, S. cerevisiae, and mammals, has emerged as a central player in the DNA transactions that preserve genomic integrity in yeast and mammalian cells.

A p53-dependent mouse spindle checkpoint
TLDR
Results suggest that murine p53 is a component of a spindle checkpoint that ensures the maintenance of diploidy, and that p53-deficient mouse embryos were exposed to spindle inhibitors.
The Saccharomyces cerevisiae checkpoint gene BUB1 encodes a novel protein kinase.
TLDR
Sequence analysis of BUB1 revealed a domain with similarity to protein kinases; In vitro experiments confirmed that Bub1 possesses kinase activity; Bub1 was able to autophosphorylate and to catalyze phosphorylation of Bub3, and overproduced Bub 1 was found to localize to the cell nucleus.
Pds1p is required for faithful execution of anaphase in the yeast, Saccharomyces cerevisiae
TLDR
Results suggest that Pds1 protein plays an important role in chromosome segregation at 23 degrees C and an essential role for this process at 37 degrees C, and that pds1 deletion allele has similar phenotypes to the original allele.
Testing the Role of p53 in the Expression of Genetic Instability and Apoptosis in Ataxia-telangiectasia.
We have obtained initial evidence supporting a new model for the human disease ataxia-telangiectasia (A-T), in which the A-T and p53 genes play crucial roles in a signal transduction network that
The WHI1+ gene of Saccharomyces cerevisiae tethers cell division to cell size and is a cyclin homolog.
TLDR
A probable accessory function of the WHI1 activator is to assist recovery from alpha factor arrest; WHI 1‐1 mutant cells could not be permanently arrested by pheromone, consistent with a hyperactivation of division.
Rfc5, a small subunit of replication factor C complex, couples DNA replication and mitosis in budding yeast.
TLDR
Results suggested that replication factor C has a direct role in sensing the state of DNA replication and transmitting the signal to the checkpoint machinery.
The Saccharomyces cerevisiae spindle pole body duplication gene MPS1 is part of a mitotic checkpoint
TLDR
It is proposed that the essential MPS1 protein kinase functions both in SPB duplication and in a mitotic checkpoint monitoring spindle integrity.
