On the origin of shape fluctuations of the cell nucleus

Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences of the United States of America

Fang-Yi ChuAlexandra Zidovska

Abstract

The nuclear envelope (NE) presents a physical boundary between the cytoplasm and the nucleoplasm, sandwiched in between two highly active systems inside the cell: cytoskeleton and chromatin. NE defines the shape and size of the cell nucleus, which increases during the cell cycle, accomm...read more

Ubiquitination Pathways &Therapeutics (Keystone)

This feed covers research relating to Peter Hsu's talk on H2B Ubiquitination-Dependent H3K4 Methylation. The addition of ubiquitin to a protein substrate via a multistep process is referred to as ubiquitination, which can have a variety of different effects on the protein including flagging the protein for degradation, altering its location or activity, or altering protein-protein interactions. Dysreguation of this pathway has been implicated in multiple disease processes. Here is the latest research on ubiquitin pathways and histone 2B.

Microtubules & Microtubule-Associated Proteins (Keystone)

Microtubule organization and dynamics are regulated by microtubule-associated proteins that interact with microtubules to regulate dynamic instability. Here is the latest research on microtubules and microtubule-associated proteins.

Microtubules & Microtubule-Associated Proteins

Microtubule organization and dynamics are regulated by microtubule-associated proteins that interact with microtubules to regulate dynamic instability. Here is the latest research on microtubules and microtubule-associated proteins.

Cytoskeletal Dynamics

The cytoskeleton is a dynamic system that is involved in numerous cellular functions. The dynamic cytoskeleton has a close relationship with formation and trafficking of vesicles, spindle localization, cell compartmentation and more. Here is the latest research on cytoskeletal dynamics.

Cytoskeletal Collection

The cytoskeleton is a dynamic network of interlinking protein filaments that extends from the plasma membrane to the nucleus. Here is the latest research.

Nuclear Pore: Structure & Function

The nuclear pore is a large complex of proteins that allow macromolecules to cross from the nucleus to the cytoplasm and vice versa. Discover the latest research on the structure and function of the nuclear pore here.

Nuclear Transport

Nuclear transport refers to the import and export of large molecules into and out of the nucleus. This process is controlled by the nuclear pore complexes, where cargo bearing a nuclear localization or export signal is transported via nuclear transport receptors. Find the latest research on nuclear transport here.

Mammalian Cell Cycle & Cell Growth Control

Mammalian cell cycle is a complex process regulated by several signal transduction pathways and enzymes. Here is the latest research on regulation of mammalian cell cycle and growth.

Somatic Cell Nuclear Transfer

Nuclear Envelope Dynamics

The nuclear envelope provides barrier between the nucleus and cytoplasm. It plays a key role in transport function and nuclear growth, organization, and integrity. Discover the latest research on nuclear envelope dynamics here.

Cytoskeleton & Cell Polarity

A dynamic cytoskeleton is critical for the generation of cell polarity. This feed focuses on cell polarity and the cytoskeleton, including actin and microtubular cytoskeletal organization.

A dynamic cytoskeleton is critical for the generation of cell polarity. This feed focuses on cell polarity and the cytoskeleton, including actin and microtubular cytoskeletal organization.

Chromosomal Duplication

Chromosomal duplication is a result of extra genetic material within the area of the chromosome. The duplication may have no effect or may be expressed in the phenotype of that individual. Some duplications are thought to be of evolutionary selection. Discover the latest research on chromosomal duplication here.

Corticobasal Degeneration

Corticobasal Degeneration (CBD)is a rare, neurodegenerative disease of the cerebral cortex and the basal ganglia, characterized by movement disorders. Discover the latest research on CBD here.

Cytoskeletal & Motor Biophysics

Cytoskeletal motors of the dynein, kinesin and myosin superfamilies maintain and adapt subcellular organelle organization to meet functional demands and support the vesicular transport of material between organelles. Here is the latest research on cytoskeletal and motor biophysics.

Nuclear Pore Complex

Nuclear pore complexes are large macromolecules composed of individual proteins called nucleoporins. These complexes perforate the nuclear envelope and allow the exchange of substances between the nucleus and the cytoplasm. Here is the latest research on nuclear pore complexes.
