The No B.s. Guide to Medical Cannabis

It’s only a matter of time before weed becomes fully legal in the United States. Therefore, it’s more important than ever for the public to understand both the positive and negative effects of cannabis.

My goal with this publication is to make sense of the science and write it in a way that is not only easy to understand, but enjoyable. I want the curious to have a place where they can find accurate information that’s easy to read. It won’t be an easy task, and I may get things wrong from time to time, but I will do my best to make this a bullshit free zone.

KLP-7 acts through the Ndc80 complex to limit pole number in C. elegans oocyte meiotic spindle assembly.

During oocyte meiotic cell division in many animals, bipolar spindles assemble in the absence of centrosomes, but the mechanisms that restrict pole assembly to a bipolar state are unknown. We show that KLP-7, the single mitotic centromere-associated kinesin (MCAK)/kinesin-13 in Caenorhabditis elegans…
