Latrunculin A Delays Anaphase Onset in Fission Yeast by Disrupting an Ase1-independent Pathway Controlling Mitotic Spindle Stability

Other literature type, Article English OPEN
Meadows, John C. ; Millar, Jonathan (2008)

It has been proposed previously that latrunculin A, an inhibitor of actin polymerization, delays the onset of anaphase by causing spindle misorientation in fission yeast. However, we show that {Delta}mto1 cells, which are defective in nucleation of cytoplasmic microtubu... View more
