A Compendium to the Phosphoregulation of Mitosis

We are very excited to announce the publishing of "A Compendium to the Phosphoregulation of Mitosis" on the open access repository Zenodo. This compendium accompanies the 2017 publication in Cell and the interactive website. In the compendium, we have compiled all the text from the 88 popups in the online interactive visualization, with the aim of making this information more…


New Publication in Cell! The Phosphoregulation of Mitosis

We are incredibly excited to announce that our SnapShot is out today in Cell! This snapshot of mitosis collates hundreds of phosphorylation events and directly links them with their regulatory kinases and counterbalancing phosphatases, in both time and space, in a highly innovative 'circtanglar' cell layout. More importantly, the static PDF version is accompanied by an interactive website that enables users…

BioEssays Review on Mitotic Phosphatase Specificity now Online

Great News, our review on how phosphatase specificity is controlled during mitosis has been re-published in BioEssays and is now Online! This review was originally published in Inside the Cell, which unfortunately has shut down. But the good news is that it is still Open Access, so that means its free for everyone to read! And is now also indexed in…


AntiOxidants and Cancer: A complicated story

A recent high profile publication in Science Translational Medicine proposed that antioxidants might increase the rate of metastasis in mice models of melanoma. NAC and the soluble vitamin E analog Trolox markedly increased the migration and invasive properties of human malignant melanoma cells but did not affect their proliferation. Both antioxidants increased the ratio between reduced and oxidized glutathione in…

New Paper Published! More data on the global phosphorylation changes during early mitotic exit

Great news, we have another publication. This time its some extra data left over from our large mass spectrometry study we published in August in Molecular & Cellular Proteomics. This latest work we provide additional analysis of our large proteomics dataset and identify motifs that correlated strongly with phosphorylation status for each of the major mitotic kinases. These motifs could be used to predict…
