Abstract

Chromosome instability (CIN) contributes to the development of many cancer. In this paper, we summarize our recent finding that a novel pathway by which FBW7 loss promotes Centromere Protein A (CENP-A) phosphorylation on Serine 18 through Cyclin E1/CDK2, therefore promoting CIN and tumorigenesis. Our finding demonstrates the importance of CENP-A post-translational modification on modulating centromere and mitotic functions in cancer.
