Abstract

The unique biological properties of Geminin, particularly as an inhibitor of DNA replication initiation, have been recognized, and this has prompted a number of investigations into this molecule to explore its potential therapeutic as well as diagnostic usefulness. This review summarizes the possibility of Geminin serving as a new molecular target in the development of new anticancer drugs.
