We describe the isolation and characterization of cDNAs encoding full-length human and murine cyclin G1 and a novel human homologue of this cyclin designated cyclin G2. Cyclin G1 is expressed at high levels in skeletal muscle, ovary, and kidney. Following an initial up-regulation from early G1 to G1/S phase, cyclin G1 mRNA is constitutively expressed(More)
Human cyclin G2 together with its closest homolog cyclin G1 defines a novel family of cyclins (Horne, M. C., Goolsby, G. L., Donaldson, K. L., Tran, D., Neubauer, M., and Wahl, A. F. (1996) J. Biol. Chem. 271, 6050-6061). Cyclin G2 is highly expressed in the immune system where immunologic tolerance subjects self-reactive lymphocytes to negative selection(More)
Toxicity elicited by the antitumor compound taxol has been linked to irreversible tubulin polymerization, cell cycle block at mitosis, and cell death from apoptosis. We have used pulsed drug exposure of synchronized populations to identify two points, one in transition from G0 to G1 and the other at G2/M of cell cycle, that are most sensitive to(More)
The overt effects of the anti-cancer drugs cisplatin (cis-DDP) and taxol appear to be DNA modification and microtubule stabilization respectively, yet the mechanisms by which these drugs elicit tumor cell death are not well understood. In this report cell sensitivities to cis-DDP and taxol were accurately determined as a function of cell proliferation and(More)
