- An epithelial cell destined for apoptosis signals its neighbors to extrude it by an actin- and myosin-dependent mechanismJ Rosenblatt
Medical Research Council Laboratory for Molecular Cell Biology, University College London, WC1E 6BT, United Kingdom
Curr Biol 11:1847-57. 2001..Apoptosis occurring within these simple epithelia could compromise this barrier. How, then, does an epithelium remove apoptotic cells without disrupting its function as a barrier?..
- Myosin II-dependent cortical movement is required for centrosome separation and positioning during mitotic spindle assemblyJody Rosenblatt
MRC Laboratory for Molecular Cell Biology, University College London, Gower Street, London SC1E 6BT, United Kingdom
Cell 117:361-72. 2004..We propose that after NEBD, completion of centrosome separation and positioning around chromosomes depends on astral microtubule connections to a moving cell cortex...
- Spindle assembly: asters part their separate waysJody Rosenblatt
MRC Laboratory for Molecular Cell Biology, University College London, London WC1E 6BT, UK
Nat Cell Biol 7:219-22. 2005..Although certain cell types use one mechanism predominantly, most rely on both to ensure proper spindle assembly...
- Mitosis: moesin and the importance of being roundJody Rosenblatt
University of Utah, Department of Oncological Sciences, Huntsman Cancer Institute, Salt Lake City, Utah 84112, USA
Curr Biol 18:R292-3. 2008..Ezrin/radixin/moesin proteins link the actin cytoskeleton to the plasma membrane. Two new reports have found that moesin phosphorylation is essential for mitotic cell rounding and identify a new role for cell rounding in spindle assembly...
