Their Report "Centralspindlin Recruits ALIX to the Midbody during Cytokinetic Abscission in Drosophila via a Mechanism Analogous to Virus Budding" uncovers parallels between ALIX recruitment during cytokinetic abscission in flies and virus budding in human cells and investigates the fine-tuned process involved in abscission, demonstrating that the centralspindlin complex emerges to play an ancestral role in recruiting the abscission machinery to the midbody

Ragnhild Eskeland from CanCell will take part in a popular science seminar coined "The Secrets of the Cells" in conjunction with "Science Days" at the University today (19/9, Litteraturhuset a 17.00), where she will present research on epigenetics and discuss why this gives us vital information about who we are, and what this may be used for. CanCell associate member Philippe Collas will also be presenting. 

If you want to attend there is still a few spaces available, please sign up here.

A graphic introduction to epigenetics can be viewed here (facebook).

Binding of growth factors to their receptors is known to cause endocytosis and degradation of the receptors and their ligands by a mechanism that involves the endosomal sorting complex required for transport (ESCRT) machinery. Failure of this mechanism can lead to cancer development. In a recent paper in Nature Communications, a team led by project leaders Eva Wenzel and Camilla Raiborg at Institute for Cancer Research and Centre for Cancer Cell Reprogramming has used advanced microscopy methods to reveal the dynamics of ESCRT recruitment and formation of multivesicular endosomes (MVEs) into which the receptor-ligand complexes are sorted for subsequent degradation.
