Experimental results: Fig. 3b, the mutants are viable and larger. They show a signifant lag in mitosis. Asynchronously growing cells show a marked increase in the percent of cells with 2C DNA contents as compared with WT.
Comments: Problem for the model. The simulation predicts correctly that the mutant cells are viable, but they are smaller than wild-type and have a shorter G2 phase.
