Gene RIF (19)

26881882 CENP-W interacts with hnRNPU and may contribute to kinetochore-microtubule attachment in mitotic cells.
26111449 CENP-W is a novel kinetochore component that may be involved in the EZH2-mediated silencing machinery.
25329824 We propose that CENP-W, by influencing proper kinetochore assembly, particularly microtubule docking sites, can confer spindle pole resistance to traction forces exerted by motor proteins during chromosome congression
24452380 CUG2-mediated antiviral activity can be reduced by ISG15 deficiency in A549 cells, which eventually enhances sensitivity of the cells to vesicular stomatitis virus infection.
23926101 CSN5 regulates the stability of the inner kinetochore components CENP-T and CENP-W, providing the first direct link between CSN5 and the mitotic apparatus, highlighting the role of CSN5 as a multifunctional cell cycle regulator.
23917355 our results suggest that CUG2 enhances metastasis and drug resistance through STAT1 activation, which eventually contributes to tumor progression
23306614 we propose that VSV treatment combined with the selective regulation of genes such as STAT1 and OASL2 will improve therapeutic outcomes for CUG2-overexpressing tumors.
22131368 Single nucleotide polymorphism in CENPW is associated with the length of reproductive lifespan.
22002061 B23 may function in the assembly of the kinetochore complex by interacting with CENP-W during interphase
21695110 The CENP-T/W complex assembles through a dynamic exchange mechanism in late S-phase and G2, is required for mitosis in each cell cycle and does not persist across cell generations.
