Our lab is interested in the fundamental mechanisms that cells use to accurately distribute their genetic material to the two daughter cells. Defects in this process lead to aneuploidy and genomic instability, which are hallmarks of cancer. Using a combination of biochemistry, biophysics, cell biology, structural biology and high resolution imaging techniques we ask fundamental questions about protein function in mitosis.
Transient Endoreplication Down-Regulates the Kinesin-14 HSET and Contributes to Genomic Instability.
