Overexpressing centriole-replication proteins in vivo induces centriole overduplication and de novo formation.
BACKGROUND: Centrosomes have important roles in many aspects of cell organization, and aberrations in their number and function are associated with various diseases, including cancer. Centrosomes consist of a pair of centrioles surrounded by a pericentriolar matrix (PCM), and their replication is tightly regulated. Here, we investigate the effects of overexpressing the three proteins known to be required for centriole replication in Drosophila-DSas-6, DSas-4, and Sak. RESULTS: By directly ob...Expand abstract
