Shaping a cellular nucleus after mitosis: summary of the article co-signed by Vincent Archambault’s team in the Journal of Cell Biology

Recent research at IRIC helps better understand how the cellular nucleus reassembles after mitosis. In eukaryotes, chromosomes are contained in a nucleus delineated by the nuclear envelope. This membrane is composed of two lipid bilayers associated with proteins that play structural roles and control exchanges between the nucleus and the cytoplasm. In animals including humans, […]

Teamwork is key for cancer-fighting proteins

The mechanisms that orchestrate the functions of our bodies and keep us healthy are quite complex, involving critical molecular components that are still poorly understood. The prestigious journal Nature Communications has published recent research on this topic by a team led by Dr. El Bachir Affar, a professor in the Department of Medicine, Faculty of […]
