Colicino et al. talks about the role of Gravin anchoring PLK1 at mitotic centrosomes. This anchor is important for regulating centrosome organization and function as seen below with super resolution imaging of the centrosome component CEP215 disorganization when Gravin is lost.
Erica Colicino and Lindsay Rathbun (Hehnly Lab Graduate students) did a great job at their posters this year! Presenting on the role of Gravin and PLK1 in centrosome function (Erica) and Spindle and cleavage furrow positioning during embryonic patterning (Lindsay).
Heidi Hehnly's Laboratory will open its doors this summer on July 1st 2015 at SUNY Upstate Medical School in scenic upstate New York. The Hehnly lab will focus primarily on the interface between membrane traffic and cytoskeletal dynamics throughout the cell cycle, and how this is important in understanding polarity formation and thus organ development and maintenance.Read More
