Small multifunctional proteins at the heart of cell division

In collaboration with researchers from the University of Amsterdam and the Institute for Pflanzengenetik in Gatersleben (Germany) Marie-Edith Chabouté identifies GIPs, 2 small proteins of Arabidopsis as new key players in the regulation of cell division by showing that they play an essential role in the cohesion of centromere. This work, published in the journal Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences offers new perspectives for understanding the initiation of some cancer processes.
