Re: Unusual cell division- Identifying mutant protein and genes

Yeah, I was thinking of cytokinesis as well although I didn't realise the golgi apparatus was involved so thanks for that info. I was thinking of using some kind of microscopy to visualise the mitotic phase so I could see exactly where the cell was arresting. As since cytokinesis consists of more th...

Unusual cell division- Identifying mutant protein and genes

Hi, I have a hypothetical situation where a mutation has arisen in a mammalian cell culture causing the production of giant multinucleate cells. It seems most likely that the problem is a result of a mutation in the cytoskeleton but since a number of proteins could have caused this mutation how do I...
