26206521 the Aurora B-PLK1 signaling at the kinetochore orchestrates MCAK activity, which is essential for timely correction of aberrant kinetochore attachment to ensure accurate chromosome segregation during mitosis.
26148251 MCAK is involved in directional migration and invasion of tumor cells.
26055718 These results demonstrate that the structural change of Kif2C-ATP upon binding to microtubule ends is sufficient for tubulin release, whereas ATP hydrolysis is not required
25504441 MCAK activity is modulated by Plk1 phosphorylation on S632/S633 in mitosis.
25002679 A Rac1-Aurora A-MCAK signaling pathway mediates endothelial cell polarization and directional migration by promoting regional differences in microtubule dynamics.
25002494 up-regulation of KIF2C and KIF2A by ERK1/2 caused aberrant lysosomal positioning and mTORC1 activity in a mutant K-Ras-dependent cancer and cancer model.
24931513 this study suggests a new mechanism by which Plk1 regulates MCAK: by regulating its degradation and hence controlling its turnover in mitosis.
24847103 A dynamic interaction of MCAK-TIP150 orchestrated by Aurora A-mediated phosphorylation governs entosis via regulating microtubule plus-end dynamics and cell rigidity.
24240690 Ras regulates KIF2C to control cell migration pathways in transformed human bronchial epithelial cells.
23891108 A CENP-E mediated wall-tethering event and a MCAK-mediated wall-removing event show that human chromosome-microtubule attachment is achieved through a set of deterministic sequential events rather than stochastic direct capture of microtubule ends.
