Tuesday 11 September 2007


- Inactivation in human cells of several components of the Pes1-Bop1 complex (BOP1, GRWD1, PES1, ORC6L, and RPL3), involved in ribosome biogenesis, alters chromosome segregation.

- Dosage increase of the BOP1 gene is a frequent event during colorectal tumorigenesis (detected in 39% of the tumors)

- Transient overexpression of BOP1 in human cells increased the percentage of multipolar spindles. (16804918)
