A combination of two phenotype-based screens, one based on a specific posttranslational modification, the other visualizing microtubules and chromatin, was used to identify compounds that affect mitosis. One compound, here named monastrol, arrested mammalian cells in mitosis with monopolar spindles. In vitro, monastrol specifically inhibited the motility of the mitotic kinesin Eg5, a motor protein required for spindle bipolarity. All previously known small molecules that specifically affect the mitotic machinery target tubulin. Monastrol will therefore be a particularly useful tool for studying mitotic mechanisms.</dcterms:abstract> <dcterms:issued>1999</dcterms:issued> <dcterms:rights rdf:resource="https://kops.uni-konstanz.de/page/termsofuse"/> <dc:contributor>Haggarty, Stephen J.</dc:contributor> <dc:creator>Schreiber, Stuart L.</dc:creator> <dc:creator>Mayer, Thomas U.</dc:creator> <dc:contributor>Kapoor, Tarun M.</dc:contributor> <dcterms:available rdf:datatype="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema#dateTime">2012-01-11T11:20:57Z</dcterms:available> <dc:creator>Kapoor, Tarun M.</dc:creator> <dc:contributor>Schreiber, Stuart L.</dc:contributor> <foaf:homepage rdf:resource="http://localhost:8080/jspui"/> <dc:language>eng</dc:language> <dcterms:title>Small molecule inhibitor of mitotic spindle bipolarity identified in a phenotype-based screen</dcterms:title> <dcterms:hasPart rdf:resource="https://kops.uni-konstanz.de/bitstream/123456789/14056/2/mayer_140561.pdf"/> <dspace:isPartOfCollection rdf:resource="https://kops.uni-konstanz.de/rdf/resource/123456789/28"/> <dc:creator>King, Randall W.</dc:creator> <dspace:hasBitstream rdf:resource="https://kops.uni-konstanz.de/bitstream/123456789/14056/2/mayer_140561.pdf"/> <dc:date rdf:datatype="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema#dateTime">2012-01-11T11:20:57Z</dc:date> <dcterms:isPartOf rdf:resource="https://kops.uni-konstanz.de/rdf/resource/123456789/28"/> <dcterms:bibliographicCitation>Science ; 286 (1999), 5441. - S. 971-974</dcterms:bibliographicCitation> <dc:creator>Mitchison, Timothy J.</dc:creator> <dc:rights>terms-of-use</dc:rights> <dc:contributor>Mayer, Thomas U.</dc:contributor> <bibo:uri rdf:resource="http://kops.uni-konstanz.de/handle/123456789/14056"/> <dc:contributor>Mitchison, Timothy J.</dc:contributor> <dc:creator>Haggarty, Stephen J.</dc:creator> <void:sparqlEndpoint rdf:resource="http://localhost/fuseki/dspace/sparql"/> </rdf:Description> </rdf:RDF>
