    Dev Cell 12:247-60. 2007
    ..In addition, Chk1-deficient cells exhibit increased resistance to taxol. These results suggest a mechanism through which Chk1 could protect against tumorigenesis through its role in spindle checkpoint signaling...

    George Zachos
    Beatson Institute for Cancer Research, Glasgow, UK
    Cell Cycle 6:810-3. 2007
    ..Specifically, Chk1 is required for proper regulation of the mitotic Aurora-B kinase which ensures that anaphase proceeds only once all kinetochores have achieved bipolar attachment to microtubules and are under tension...

    J Virol 77:4315-25. 2003
    ..This is the first example of CK2 stimulation by a viral protein in vivo, and we propose that it might facilitate the HSV-1 lytic cycle by, for example, regulating trafficking of ICP27 protein and/or viral RNAs...
