At the Biochemical Society Scientific Meeting "New Horizons in ESCRT Biology" from 17-20 April 2018 in London, Anette Lie-Jensen, PhD student in CanCell, received the best oral communication prize for her talk "Novel recruitment mechanism of ALIX during cytokinetic abscission in Drosophila".
About the talk: The fruit fly, Drosophila Melanogaster, and all other invertebrates lack the major cytokinesis regulator CEP55. However, down stream components, such as ALIX, are shown to play an important role in cytokinesis in the fruit fly. Anette Lie-Jensen's research project aims to elucidate how ALIX can be recruited to the midbody in the abscence of CEP55.
