New functional activities for the p21 family of CDK inhibitors.
The association of cdk4 with D-type cyclins to form functional kinase complexes is comparatively inefficient. This has led to the suggestion that assembly might be a regulated step. In this report weExpand

Cell cycle-regulated phosphorylation of p220(NPAT) by cyclin E/Cdk2 in Cajal bodies promotes histone gene transcription.
Cyclin E/Cdk2 acts at the G1/S-phase transition to promote the E2F transcriptional program and the initiation of DNA synthesis. To explore further how cyclin E/Cdk2 controls S-phase events, weExpand

The ZO-1–associated Y-box factor ZONAB regulates epithelial cell proliferation and cell density
Epithelial tight junctions regulate paracellular permeability, restrict apical/basolateral intramembrane diffusion of lipids, and have been proposed to participate in the control of epithelial cellExpand

CHK2 kinase: cancer susceptibility and cancer therapy – two sides of the same coin?
In the past decade, CHK2 has emerged as an important multifunctional player in the DNA-damage response signalling pathway. Parallel studies of the human CHEK2 gene have also highlighted its role as aExpand

Microinjection of recombinant p21rho induces rapid changes in cell morphology
The rho proteins, p21rho, are ubiquitously expressed guanine nucleotide binding proteins with approximately 30% amino acid homology to p21ras, but their biochemical function is unknown. We show hereExpand

GDI1 encodes a GDP dissociation inhibitor that plays an essential role in the yeast secretory pathway.
GTP binding proteins of the Sec4/Ypt/rab family regulate distinct vesicular traffic events in eukaryotic cells. We have cloned GDI1, an essential homolog of bovine rab GDI (GDP dissociationExpand

In vitro and In vivo Pharmacokinetic-Pharmacodynamic Relationships for the Trisubstituted Aminopurine Cyclin-Dependent Kinase Inhibitors Olomoucine, Bohemine and CYC202
Purpose: To investigate pharmacokinetic-pharmacodynamic relationships for the trisubstituted aminopurine cyclin-dependent kinase inhibitors olomoucine, bohemine, and CYC202 (R-roscovitine;Expand

Trans‐activation of the DNA‐damage signalling protein kinase Chk2 by T‐loop exchange
The protein kinase Chk2 (checkpoint kinase 2) is a major effector of the replication checkpoint. Chk2 activation is initiated by phosphorylation of Thr68, in the serine–glutamine/threonine–glutamineExpand

Bcr encodes a GTPase-activating protein for p21rac
MORE than thirty small guanine nucleotide-binding proteins related to the ras-encoded oncoprotein, termed Ras or p21ras, are known1. They regulate many fundamental processes in all eukaryotic cells,Expand

The Cyclin-dependent Kinase Inhibitor CYC202 (R-Roscovitine) Inhibits Retinoblastoma Protein Phosphorylation, Causes Loss of Cyclin D1, and Activates the Mitogen-activated Protein Kinase Pathway
Deregulation of the cell cycle commonly occurs during tumorigenesis, resulting in unrestricted cell proliferation and independence from mitogens. Cyclin-dependent kinase inhibitors have the potentialExpand
