Berl R OakleyDepartment of Molecular Genetics, The University of Kansas, USA F1000 Faculty Member (since 14 July 2003)
We currently have two major research projects. The first is on gamma-tubulin and its role in cell cycle regulation. We are using the filamentous fungus Aspergillus nidulans as our experimental organism for this project.
My lab discovered gamma-tubulin and helped to uncover its role in microtubule nucleation. More recent work with gamma-tubulin mutants has revealed that gamma-tubulin has an important but poorly understood role in mitotic regulation independent of its role in microtubule nucleation. We are now attempting to understand this role (or these roles).
