BackgroundGeminin is a nuclear protein that is present in most eukaryotics and highly conserved across species. Numerous functions have been elucidated for Geminin including roles in metazoan cell cycle, cellular proliferation, cell lineage commitment, and neural differentiation. Geminin is absent during G1 phase and accumulates through S, G2 phase and M phases of the cell cycle. Geminin levels drop at the metaphase / anaphase transition of mitosis when it is degraded by the Anaphase Promoting Complex (APC/C). During S phase, geminin is a positive regulator of DNA replication. In many cancer cell lines, inhibition of geminin by RNAi results in re-replication of portions of the genome, which leads to aneuploidy. In these cell lines, geminin knockdown leads to markedly slowed growth and apoptosis within several days. Recently, geminin has been found to be overexpressed in several malignancies and cancer cell lines.(R1311-8)
