Highlight Detail

CPAP is a cell-cycle regulated protein that controls centriole length.

Dr. Tang, Tang K.
Nat Cell Biol., Jun 07, 2009

Centriole duplication involves the growing of a procentriole (progeny centriole) next to the proximal end of each pre-existing centriole (parental centriole). The molecular mechanisms that regulate procentriole elongation remain obscure. We show here that expression of the centriolar protein CPAP (centrosomal P4.1-associated protein) is carefully regulated during the cell cycle,
