...Xiaotian Wang; Claudia Baumann; Rabindranath De La Fuente; Maria M. Viveiros ABSTRACT Oocyte-specific knockdown of pericentrin (PCNT) in transgenic (Tg) mice disrupts acentriolar microtubule-organizing center (aMTOC) formation, leading to spindle instability and error-prone meiotic division. Here...

... aggregation of PLK1, which is highly phosphorylated, in the cytoplasm during mitosis. Importantly, a targeted RNAi screen revealed that depletion of CEP76 resulted in a similar phenotype. In addition, depletion of CEP76 caused defective spindle orientation and mitotic delay. Moreover, the formation of ectopic...

.... In S. cerevisiae , Cdk1 phosphorylates securin (Pds1), which facilitates Pds1 binding and inhibits separase (Esp1). During anaphase, Esp1 cleaves the cohesin subunit Scc1 and promotes spindle elongation. Here, we show that PP2A Cdc55 directly dephosphorylates Pds1 both in vivo and in vitro . Pds1...

...Ana Loncar; Sergio A. Rincon; Manuel Lera Ramirez; Anne Paoletti; Phong T. Tran ABSTRACT To segregate the chromosomes faithfully during cell division, cells assemble a spindle that captures the kinetochores and pulls them towards opposite poles. Proper spindle function requires correct interplay...

We found that PDK3-mediated phosphorylation of Ser293-PDHE1α results in disruption of meiotic spindle morphology and chromosome alignment and decreased total ATP levels, probably through inhibition of PDH activity. Unexpectedly, we...
