Biological Activity for Centrinone
Centrinone is a high affinity and selective PLK4 inhibitor (Ki = 0.16 nM). Exhibits >1000-fold selectivity for PLK4 over Aurora A and Aurora B. Depletes centriole and centrosome levels in vitro. Induces cell cycle arrest in normal human cell lines in a p53-dependent manner. Decreases expression of pluripotency markers and induces differentiation in pluripotent stem cells.

Cell Cycle & DNA Damage Repair Poster
In normal cells, each stage of the cell cycle is tightly regulated, however in cancer cells many genes and proteins that are involved in the regulation of the cell cycle are mutated or over expressed. Adapted from the 2015 Cancer Product Guide, Edition 3, this poster summarizes the stages of the cell cycle and DNA repair. It also highlights strategies for enhancing replicative stress in cancer cells to force mitotic catastrophe and cell death.
