Mammalian Chk2 is a downstream effector of the ATM-dependent DNA damage checkpoint pathway
TLDR
Results suggest that Chk2 is a downstream effector of the ATM-dependent DNA damage checkpoint pathway and might not only delay mitotic entry, but also increase the capacity of cultured cells to survive after treatment with γ-radiation or with the topoisomerase-I inhibitor topotecan.
Cdc25 inhibited in vivo and in vitro by checkpoint kinases Cds1 and Chk1.
TLDR
Evidence is presented from in vivo and in vitro studies, which indicates that Cds1 also inhibits Cdc25, the phosphatase that activates Cdc2, and seems to act in different checkpoint responses to regulate CDC25 by similar mechanisms.
The human homologs of checkpoint kinases Chk1 and Cds1 (Chk2) phosphorylate p53 at multiple DNA damage-inducible sites.
TLDR
It is interesting that hCHK1 strongly prefers tetrameric to monomeric p53 in vitro, consistent with the observation that phosphorylation of amino-terminal sites in vivo requires that p53 be oligomeric.
Serine-345 is required for Rad3-dependent phosphorylation and function of checkpoint kinase Chk1 in fission yeast
TLDR
Evidence is strengthened that transduction of the DNA damage checkpoint signal requires direct phosphorylation of Chk1 by Rad3, a protein kinase related to human ATM and ATR, and that mutations of serine-367 and other SQ/TQ sites do not substantially impair the checkpoint or cause damage sensitivity.
Threonine 68 is required for radiation-induced phosphorylation and activation of Cds1
TLDR
Threonine 68 of Cds1 is the preferred site of phosphorylation by ATM in vitro, and is the principal irradiation-induced site ofosphorylation in vivo, which is demonstrated by the failure of a mutant, non-phosphorylatable form of CDS1 to be fully activated, and by its reduced ability to induce G1 arrest in response to ionising radiation.
Caffeine Abolishes the Mammalian G2/M DNA Damage Checkpoint by Inhibiting Ataxia-Telangiectasia-mutated Kinase Activity*
TLDR
A model wherein caffeine abrogates the G2/M checkpoint by targeting the ATM-Chk2/Cds1 pathway is proposed; by inhibiting ATM, it prevents the serine 216 phosphorylation of Cdc25C in the nucleus.
Regulation of the antioncogenic Chk2 kinase by the oncogenic Wip1 phosphatase
TLDR
It is shown that Chk2 associates with the oncogenic protein Wip1 (wild-type p53-inducible phosphatase 1) (PPM1D), a p 53-inducer protein phosphatases, which acts as a negative regulator of Chk1 in response to DNA damage.
The G(2) DNA damage checkpoint targets both Wee1 and Cdc25.
TLDR
It is shown that the G(2) DNA damage checkpoint simultaneously signals via both up-regulation of Wee1p and down- regulation of Cdc25p, thus providing a double-lock mechanism to ensure cell cycle arrest and genomic stability.
Threonine-11, Phosphorylated by Rad3 and ATM In Vitro, Is Required for Activation of Fission Yeast Checkpoint Kinase Cds1
TLDR
In vitro, Rad3 and ATM phosphorylate the N-terminal domain of Cds1 at the motif T11Q12, suggesting that Rad3-dependent phosphorylation of CDS1 at threonine-11 is required for Cds 1 activation and function.
Regulation of Cdc25A Half-life in Interphase by Cyclin-dependent Kinase 2 Activity*
TLDR
Treatment of HeLa cells with the cyclin-dependent kinase inhibitor roscovitine caused a concentration- and time-dependent increase in Cdc25A protein levels, demonstrating Cdk2 kinase activity contributes to the labile nature of C dc25A during interphase and redefine the nature of the CDC25A-Cdk2 autoamplification feedback loop.

The role of Cdc2 feedback loop control in the DNA damage checkpoint in mammalian cells.
TLDR
It is found that the signal generated by the DNA damage checkpoint in G2 was dominant over that from the spindle microtubule-assembly checkpoint, because the high Cdc2 activity present in nocodazole or Taxol-arrested cells was reduced by DNA damage.
Role of inhibitory CDC2 phosphorylation in radiation-induced G2 arrest in human cells
TLDR
In inhibitory phosphorylation of CDC2, as well as additional undefined mechanisms, delay mitosis after DNA damage.
Conservation of the Chk1 checkpoint pathway in mammals: linkage of DNA damage to Cdk regulation through Cdc25.
TLDR
Results suggest a model whereby in response to DNA damage, Chk1 phosphorylates and inhibits Cdc25C, thus preventing activation of the Cdc2-cyclin B complex and mitotic entry.
The role of inhibitory phosphorylation of CDC2 following DNA replication block and radiation-induced damage in human cells.
TLDR
Investigating the situation in a human cervical carcinoma cell line and finding that low level expression of a mutant nonphosphorylatable form of CDC2 abrogates regulation of the endogenous CDC2/cyclin B establishes the importance of inhibitory phosphorylation ofCDC2 in the survival mechanism used by human cells when exposed to some of the most common forms of anticancer therapy.
Cell cycle regulation of human WEE1.
TLDR
Antibody depletion experiments demonstrate that WEE1 accounts for most of the activity that phosphorylates CDC2 on Tyr15 in an in vitro assay of HeLa cell lysates, hence it is likely to have an important role in the mitotic control of human cells.
Cdc25 mitotic inducer targeted by chk1 DNA damage checkpoint kinase.
TLDR
Findings identify Cdc25, but not Wee1, as a target of the DNA damage checkpoint, which is induced by DNA damage in both fission yeast and human cells.
Spk1/Rad53 is regulated by Mec1-dependent protein phosphorylation in DNA replication and damage checkpoint pathways.
TLDR
Data support the model that Spk1p is an essential intermediate component in a signal transduction pathway coupling damage and checkpoint functions to cell cycle arrest, mediated through a protein kinase cascade that potentially includes Mec1p and Tel1p as the upstream kinases.
Activation of the phosphatase activity of human cdc25A by a cdk2‐cyclin E dependent phosphorylation at the G1/S transition.
TLDR
The results indicate that the cdc25A phosphatase is required to enter S phase in human cells and suggest that this enzyme is part of an auto‐amplification loop analogous to that described at the G2/M transition.
Replication checkpoint enforced by kinases Cds1 and Chk1.
TLDR
Cds1 and Chk1 appear to jointly enforce the replication checkpoint, and HU-induced arrest of cell division was abolished in cds1 chk1 cells.
