Mitosis in Human Cells
11 partners will form the largest integrated research project on cell cycle control. With an 8.5 million euro grant over four years, MitoCheck will systematically study the regulation of mitosis in human cells.
The project aims to test all human genes for involvement in mitosis by RNAi, then identify a subset which will be studied intensively for changes in phosphorylation, subcellular localization and involvement in protein complexes. Other aspects will look at engineering mitotic kinases and translational opportunities for human health.
