We are incredibly excited to announce that our SnapShot is out today in Cell! This snapshot of mitosis collates hundreds of phosphorylation events and directly links them with their regulatory kinases and counterbalancing phosphatases, in both time and space, in a highly innovative ‘circtanglar’ cell layout. More importantly, the static PDF version is accompanied by an […]Read More New Publication in Cell! The Phosphoregulation of Mitosis
Great News, we have a new review article that has just been published online today in Inside the Cell! Its Open Access, so that means its free for everyone to read! During mitotic exit, phosphatases reverse thousands of phosphorylation events in a specific temporal order to ensure that cell division occurs correctly. This review explores how […]Read More New Review Article Published!! “Mechanisms Regulating Phosphatase Specificity During Mitotic Exit”
There has been a bit of press lately suggesting that Antioxidants might actually be bad for cancer… not good as they are commonly promoted in the media. IFLS has put together a great article on some of the reasons why antioxidants might not be such a great thing [Link]. In addition, we recently wrote a […]Read More Anti-Oxaidants and Cancer…A complicated story!
You can now download the final PDF version of our latest work here: https://www.landesbioscience.com/journals/cc/article/28401/ The great news is that its also open access so anyone and everyone can view and download it. Enjoy !Read More Our Cell Cycle Paper is now Live and Open Access
Here is a slide that I made and often use at the beginning of my talks to briefly explain what mitosis is. The images are taken from a live cell that we have labelled with fluorescent probes to highlight the DNA (red) and microtubules (green). Enjoy !Read More A brief introduction to Mitosis
Here is one of the images that we took using a Leica SP8 confocal microscope this week in the lab. It is a 3D image of a HeLa cell that has completely stuffed up mitosis (undergone mitotic catastrophe). It has separated whole chromosomes randomly into 2 daughter cells instead of separating the two identical chromatids in […]Read More Cell Image of the Week – Mitotic Catastrophe
For a bit of fun way for us to show our research to the public, we have opened up a Redbubble store with some great Mitotic themed items inspired by the research that we do. 100% of any profits made will be used to directly fund further research (and or coffee) to keep us awake so […]Read More Mitotic Control Lab now has a Redbubble Store
Here is a nice Animated movie explaining mitosis (cell division). Definitely worth a watch !Read More Nice Movie about Mitosis
