Giant nuclei is essential in the cell cycle transition from meiosis to mitosis

Article English OPEN
Renault, Andrew D.; Zhang, Xiao-Hua; Alphey, Luke S.; Frenz, Lisa M.; Glover, David M.; Saunders, Robert D. C.; Axton, J. Myles;

At the transition from meiosis to cleavage mitoses, Drosophila requires the cell cycle regulators encoded by the genes, giant nuclei (gnu), plutonium (plu) and pan gu (png). Embryos lacking Gnu protein undergo DNA replication and centrosome proliferation without chromos... View more
