Used in cytogenetics, colcemid, also known as demecolcine, is related to colchicine but it is less toxic. It depolymerises microtubules and limits microtubule formation (inactivates spindle fibre formation), thus arresting cells in metaphase and allowing cell harvest and karyotyping to be performed. Colcemid is used primarily for scientific research in cells. It is used in a variety of ways, however, until recently, was used mostly for the study of mitosis in cells. Anti-cancer compound.
