Cephalon holds exclusive rights to market and develop TREANDA in the United States. TREANDA is licensed ...

Scientists discover key event in prostate cancer progression

... prostate cancer, however, the receptors are reprogrammed to selectively regulate genes involved in actual cell division, that is, the mitotic phase of the cycle. A gene called UBE2C was a standout among these genes, and increased expression of that gene correlated with progression to the ...

From mother to daughters: A central mystery in cell division solved

... that are also used in muscle. During cell division, the genome is replicated and the two copies are separated to opposite sides of the cell by the mitotic spindle. The spindle then directs the assembly of a contractile ring, which forms a belt around the cell middle. As happens during muscle ...

Exercise Keeps the Brain Young

... researchers then looked at the ability of the brain to continue to produce neural cells. In middle-aged mice, the number of neural progenitor and mitotic cells in the hippocampus, a brain region intimately associated with learning and memory, decreased dramatically, Kuo explained. "Compared to the ...

Stem-cell sentry sounds the alarm to maintain balance between cancer and aging, U-M researchers find

... to an adjoining messenger cell called the hub. Yamashita and her colleagues found that improper orientation of the centrosomes disrupts the mitotic machinery, steering it on a course toward stem-cell over-proliferation and cancer. The checkpoint mechanism senses when centrosomes are ...

Damon Runyon Cancer Research Foundation awards prestigious fellowships to 14 top young investigators

... his sponsors Kenneth E. Prehoda, PhD, and Chris Q. Doe, PhD, at the University of Oregon, Eugene, Oregon, is investigating the molecular mechanism of mitotic spindle orientation during asymmetric cell division of model progenitor stem cells. Failure in this process can lead to aberrant cell division and ...

Newborn brain cells modulate learning and memory

... to normal brain function a question Gage is particularly interested in. In the past, methods to knock out neurogenesis, such as radiation and mitotic inhibitors that block all cell division have been rather crude, he says. So, maybe not surprisingly the literature is riddled with contradictory ...

Cephalon Submits New Drug Application for TREANDA for the Treatment of Chronic Lymphocytic Leukemia

... rapid, sustained single- and double-strand DNA damage, which results in apoptosis, or programmed cell death, in the tumor. TREANDA also induces mitotic checkpoint inhibition, which results in non-apoptotic cell death. TREANDA causes DNA disruption that is both extensive and durable exhibiting a low ...

Silencing of these ... conclude that specific disruption of the mitotic checkpoint promotes paclitaxel resistance and ... suggest that paclitaxel-induced prolonged mitotic arrest may result in ceramide accumulation and ...

Characteristics of Fast-Growing Skin Cancers

... method was doubled-checked by comparing the rate of growth with the tumor mitotic rate, or the rate at which the cancer cells multiply. Those tumors with a faster mitotic rate also had a faster rate of growth as determined by the researchers’ ...

Scientists Demonstrate Heart Cell Replication in Mice

... mature, rod-shaped heart muscle cells (known as cardiomyocytes) with periostin in a Petri dish. About one per cent of the cells entered the mitotic cell cycle -- namely, they began dividing and replicating. "We found a small subpopulation of cells that could, with proper stimulation, ...

Sea Creature's Toxin Could Lead to Promising Cancer Treatment

... variants of diazonamide A in order to pin down how it prevents cancer cells from dividing. Normal cell division involves a structure called the mitotic spindle, which pulls apart the chromosomes before the cell splits. The spindle is primarily made out of a substance called tubulin. Some anti-cancer ...

... (Numb) involved in the differentiation into neurons and neuroblast self-renewal (aPKC) are not sorted to their proper sides of the cell, and the mitotic spindle that provides cortical polarity becomes misaligned. The subsequent splitting leads to new cells with improper proteins mixes, including an ...

... with it, causing the cilia to shorten, and permitting the ciliary basal bodies/centrioles to migrate to the center of the cell to form the mitotic apparatus. Following chromosome separation, the amount of this IFT protein again increases, and the cell divides. If the amount of the IFT protein is ...

Anti-fungal drug - Griseofulvin may help treat cancer

... The authors found that the drug works as an anti-proliferative agent and inhibits cancer cells by affecting mitosis, or cell division, and mitotic spindle microtubule function. The authors conclude by saying- "A mild suppression of microtubule dynamics by griseofulvin in tumor cells, combined ...
