MAD1 mitotic arrest deficient-like 1 (yeast)
Mitotic arrest deficient-like 1 (yeast) is also known as MAD1 and MAD1L1. It is part of the MAD1 family which is crucial to development. MAD1 acts as a checkpoint gene during mitotic spindle assembly. During anaphase and telophase MAD1 is located at the spindle mid-zone of the cell, where it prevents anaphase until the chromosome is aligned at the metaphase plate. During metaphase MAD1 is located at the centrosome. MAD1 participates in cell cycle control and tumor suppression. MAD1 functions as a homodimer and interacts with MAD2L1. It is thought that MAD1 recruits to MAD2, which then promotes binding of MAD2 to CDC20.
