Convenzione AIRC- IBP per l'assegnazione di una borsa di studio per lo svolgimento di attività di ricerca dal titolo:
- Golgi Partitioning and mitotic progression in tumorigenesis: unvealing the role of CtBP1-S/BARS


This project aims to clarify: a) the mechanisms of action of the protein BARS in mitotic Golgi partitioning, revealing the BARS specific interactors that play a key role in this process; b) the BARS-specific post-translational modifications during interphase/G2 and mitosis with the aim to define how BARS is regulated/activated during G2/M transition. These two points converge into the identification of new candidates for future antimitotic therapies in cancer treatment.

Start date of activity
