Several studies have recently reported that the cyclin dependent kinase (cdk) 6 oncogene plays a role in differentiation of a variety of cell types. This novel function expands the previously understood function of cdk6 as a regulator of G(1) phase of the cell cycle. The proposed mechanisms of these functions both require nuclear localization. That is, cdk6(More)
Cyclin-dependent kinase 6 (Cdk6) is a D-Cyclin-activated kinase that is directly involved in driving the cell cycle through inactivation of pRB in G₁ phase. Increasingly, evidence suggests that CDK6, while directly driving the cell cycle, may only be essential for proliferation of specialized cell types, agreeing with the notion that CDK6 also plays an(More)
Beetle luciferases have been adapted for live cell imaging where bioluminescence is dependent on the cellular availability of ATP, O2, and added luciferin. Previous Photinus pyralis red-emitting variants with high Km values for ATP have performed disappointingly in live cells despite having much higher relative specific activities than enzymes like Click(More)
