1R01NS067289-01A1 Ayad (PI) 6/1/2010-5/30/2015 The Anaphase Promoting Complex and Cell Cycle Exit. $563,676/year The goal of this grant is to determine the contribution of the ubiquitin ligase the Anaphase Promoting Complex to cell cycle exit in the cerebellum. The Anaphase Promoting Complex has recently been shown to be required for different aspects of neuronal survival but its in vivo role in neurons has not been addressed. We are conditionally deleting Anaphase Promoting Complex subunits to determine its role in medulloblastoma and other neurological diseases. We are also identifying novel ubiquitin ligases and kinases required for cell cycle exit and neuronal survival.

Wee1 is an inhibitor of mitosis in several eukaryotic cells. Several studies have demonstrated that it is degraded in order to initiate mitotic entry Landenberger Foundation Grant Ayad (PI) 11/1/07-7/30/10 $350,000; Developing cell based screens to identify essential proteolysis sites. The goal of this grant is to develop cell-based screens to identify regions of tumor suppressor proteins required for protein turnover.
