Seliciclib (CYC202, R-roscovitine) is a cyclin-dependent kinase (CDK) inhibitor that competes for the ATP binding site on the kinase. It has greatest activity against CDK2/cyclin E, CDK7/cyclin H, and CDK9/cyclin T. Seliciclib induces apoptosis from all phases of the cell cycle in tumor cell lines, reduces tumor growth in xenografts in nude mice and is(More)
We previously characterized major components of mitotic chromosomes assembled in Xenopus laevis egg extracts and collectively referred to them as Xenopus chromosome-associated polypeptides (XCAPs). They included five subunits of the condensin complex essential for chromosome condensation. In an effort to identify novel proteins involved in this process, we(More)
B-cell chronic lymphocytic leukemia (B-CLL) is a clinically variable disease where mutations in DNA damage response genes ATM or TP53 affect the response to standard therapeutic agents. The in vitro cytotoxicity of a novel cyclin-dependent kinase inhibitor, CYC202, was evaluated in 26 B-CLLs, 11 with mutations in either the ATM or TP53 genes, and compared(More)

Although widely used as a marker of cell proliferation, the biochemical properties and function of the Ki67 antigen remain poorly understood. Recent data indicate that it can interact with RNA, DNA, and a number of cellular proteins including elements of the ubiquitin proteolytic pathway and a novel kinase. The evidence for its expression only in cycling(More)
Although widely used as an operational marker of proliferation, the cell cycle-regulated Ki67 protein is of unknown function. pKi67 is found predominantly in the nucleolus in cycling interphase cells and moves to become perichromosomal during mitosis. We have performed a detailed immunochemical analysis of pKi67 in HeLa cells and report the existence of a(More)
The human DEAD box protein p68 is an established RNA-dependent ATPase and RNA helicase, p68 has been highly conserved in evolution and appears to be essential for normal growth, suggesting that this protein plays an important role in the cell. Although the biochemical activities of p68 are fairly well characterized, little is known about its biological(More)
The induction of the p53 response to ionising radiation has been studied during murine development and in the adult animal. The response has been assessed by precise quantitative assay of p53 protein levels in tissues and by immunohistochemistry. Newly developed transgenic mice in which a lacZ transgene is driven by a p53 response element have also been(More)
Faithful separation of chromosomes prior to cell division at mitosis is a highly regulated process. One family of serine/threonine kinases that plays a central role in regulation is the Aurora family. Aurora B plays a role in the spindle assembly checkpoint, in part, by destabilizing the localization of BubR1 and Mad2 at centrosomes and responds to changes(More)
