I have a cell line with a peculiar
multinucleated/micronucleated phenotype.  Does anyone
know of some of the mutant proteins or disrupted
pathways that may be involved in producing such a
phenotype?  So far, most of the literature I have
found points to disruption of microtubules and
proteins involved in regulating the contractile ring
function during cytokinesis. If you have read or know
of any other causes please post here or to my e-mail.
