Title

The Kinetochore and Cancer

Abstract

Defects in the kinetochore function lead to chromosome instability (CIN). CIN typically yields a heterogeneously aneuploid tumor cell population that has the ability undergo selective evolution, as is required for processes such as metastasis and resistance to therapy. I will talk about our recent findings of the potential role of CENP-A, a centromeric histone H3 homolog, in cancer development of Ewing Sarcoma.
