Z-focal series of HeLa cells at metaphase. Cells were stained for DNA (blue), phosphorylated mitotic centromere-associated kinesin (MCAK) (red) and HEC1 (green).
Cells were transfected with control (this image) or Bod1 (CIL:13379) siRNA. After 72 h, cells were treated with monastrol for 3 h and released into media containing MG132 for 1 h before fixing.
Antibodies were rabbit anti-HEC1 (green) antibody (Abcam) used at 1:1,000. and antiâ€“phospho-MCAK antibodies (red) (Andrews et al., 2004) used at 1 μg/ml, and DNA (blue). Fluorescently labeled secondary antibodies were all obtained from Jackson ImmunoResearch Laboratories. Corresponds to Fig 5B in JCB vol. 179 no. 2 187-197.
