Host: Viji Draviam

Greatwall is a novel mitotic kinase that plays a crucial role in regulating the Cdk counteracting phosphatase PP2A /B55. The precise functions and regulation of Greatwall kinase itself remains to be explored. In my seminar I will report on work in my laboratory on the phosphatases that counteract Greatwall activation. I will also discuss recent efforts in the lab to develop Greatwall as a target in cancer therapy and present unpublished work on a collaboration with the Pearl lab to solve the structure of this kinase and develop an in vitro screen to identify small molecule inhibitors of Greatwall.
