Here is a HeLa cell in the first stages of mitosis (prophase) just as it has begun to condensing its DNA into chromosomes. At this point it looks strikingly similar to the folds of a human brain. The image has been put through a few photoshop filters to give this stunning final image.Read More Cell Brains – Image of the Week
Big congratulations to Samuel, who completed his honours thesis today. A lot of hard work in a very short period of time, and a very nice thesis in the end! Well done Sam !Read More Congratulation to Sam for completing his thesis
After some deep thought and consultation with my lab, I have decided to change the lab name from the Mitotic Control lab to the more flexible and public friendly “Cell Division” lab. We feel this name is much simpler to understand, especially for those that are not specialist in the field. It also provides more […]Read More Our New Name is the “Cell Division Lab”
Rachael’s Paper is now on-line [Link] Role of endoplasmic reticulum stress induction by the plant toxin, persin, in overcoming resistance to the apoptotic effects of tamoxifen in human breast cancer cells “The cytotoxic effects of persin are CASP-4 dependent and mediated by CHOP-dependent and -independent ERS signalling cascades. Increased ERS signalling contributes to persin-induced reversal […]Read More Persin Paper on reversal of Tamoxifen resistance Now Online !
