They are not the ones rocketing through adolescence while reading Salinger and studying cellular mitosis
Specifically, MKC-1 arrests cellular mitosis
by inhibiting an intracellular target important in cellular trafficking that has been shown to be involved in cell division.
ILX-651 is a synthetic pentapeptide analog of the natural anti-tumor substance dolastatin, which works by binding tubulin and interfering with cellular mitosis
in a method similar to the way taxanes work.
Research: To study a critical step in cellular mitosis
, the segregation of chromosomes, using a combination of molecular biological, biochemical, and biophysical approaches to investigate the proteins involved in this process.
