Mitotic kinesins: A reason to delve into kinesin-12

Research output: Contribution to journalShort surveypeer-review

11 Scopus citations


The failure of kinesin-targeting cancer drugs is thought to result from functional redundancy of mitotic kinesins. A new study provides mechanistic insights into kinesin-12 that help to explain its targeting to kinetochore fibers and its ability to compensate for inhibition of kinesin-5.
