26797278 Thus, our findings identified a definite regulatory mechanism of the search and capture process for stable spindle attachment through cross-talk between spindle dynamics and KT composition mediated by DDA3 and Ska1.
26197237 knockdown of SKA1 could potently suppress bladder cancer cell proliferation in vitro and lentivirus-mediated silencing of SKA1 might serve as a novel strategy for gene therapy of bladder cancer.
26063960 Results show that high SKA1 expression is predictive of poor prognosis of papillary thyroid carcinoma (PTC), implying it as a promising new target for PTC therapies.
24827423 Ska1 over-expression promotes tumourigenesis
24627241 SKA1 could be used for gastric cancer early diagnosis as a biomarker.
24413531 the kinetochore-associated Ska complex interacts with tubulin monomers via the carboxy-terminal winged-helix domain of Ska1, providing the structural basis for the ability to bind both straight and curved microtubule structures.
24010405 Data suggest that SKA1 plays an important role in the proliferation of hepatocellular carcinoma cells
23085020 the conserved kinetochore-localized Ska1 complex tracks with depolymerizing microtubule ends and associates with both the microtubule lattice and curved protofilaments
22483620 The structure of the Ska core complex is a W-shaped dimer of coiled coils, formed by intertwined interactions between Ska1, Ska2, and Ska3.
22371557 Data suggest that Aurora B phosphorylation antagonizes the interaction between the Ska1-3 complex and the KMN network, thereby controlling Ska recruitment to KTs and stabilization of KT-MT attachments.
