MKC- 1 has been shown to inhibit mitotic spindle formation, prevent chromosome segregation in the M-phase of the cell cycle, and induce apoptosis in multiple cell lines, consistent with a mechanism in which MKC-1 blocks the nuclear uptake of proteins essential to cell replication.
Aurora kinases are important for the progression through the M-phase of the cell cycle and are known to be over-expressed in a number of tumor types, including breast, colon, pancreas and bladder.
MKC-1 has been shown to inhibit mitotic spindle formation, prevent chromosome segregation in the M-phase (mitosis) of the cell cycle, and induce apoptosis in multiple cell lines, consistent with a mechanism in which MKC-1 blocks the nuclear uptake of proteins essential to cell replication.
CDK1 is a catalytic subunit of the M-phase promoting factor, which is activated at the G2/M transition and controls the onset of mitosis (Takizawa and Morgan, 2000).
