This implies that Mps1 may recruitment and substrate phosphorylation. The relatively small also signal directly to Sgo1 as has been suggested recently by others time window in which Mps1 operates likely explains why the . Importantly, RNAi-mediated Sgo1 depletion resulted in a effect of Mps1 on Aurora B centromere localization was not reduction of centromeric Aurora B to a comparable level as was previously detected observed after inhibition of Mps1 indicating that thereduced Sgo1 levels may indeed be responsible for the impaired Mps1 controls the Bub1/H2A/Sgo CPC recruitment axis Aurora B centromere recruitment after Mps1 inhibition.
Given the importance of the Bub1/H2A-T120ph/Sgo pathway forCPC centromere localization we rationalized that the defects Mps1 recruits Aurora B to stimulate error correction in this pathway could explain the delay in Aurora B centromere We next tested the significance of the Mps1-Aurora B recruitment accumulation following Mps1 inhibition.
