THE division cycle of eukaryotic cells is regulated by a family of protein kinases known as the cyclin-dependent kinases (CDKs)1,2. The sequential activation of individual members of this family and their consequent phosphorylation of critical substrates promotes orderly progression through the cell cycle3,4. The complexes formed by CDK4 and the D-type cyclins have been strongly implicated in the control of cell proliferation during the G1 phase3–6. CDK4 exists, in part, as a multi-protein… 

Regulation and Function of a Cell Cycle Key Regulator

A comprehensive review of current knowledge on p27 functions as a positive and negative regulator of G1 phase progression that could make it an attractive candidate as a therapeutical target.

Structural basis of inhibition of CDK-cyclin complexes by INK4 inhibitors.

The structure reveals that p18(INK4c) inhibits the CDK-cyclin complex by distorting the ATP binding site and misaligning catalytic residues, and this structure provides insights into the specificity of the D-type cyclins for Cdk4/6.

Transcriptional repression of the D-type cyclin-dependent kinase inhibitor p16 by the retinoblastoma susceptibility gene product pRb.

It is reported that the p16 mRNA accumulates to a high level in cells lacking pRb function and transcription of p16 is repressed by pR b, providing evidence supporting a feedback regulatory loop involving pRB, p16, and cyclin-dependent kinases.

Regulation of the retinoblastoma protein-related p107 by G1 cyclin complexes.

It is shown that phosphorylation of the pRb-related p107 results in the loss of the ability to associate with E2F-4, a transcription factor with growth-promoting and oncogenic activity, and that the activity of p107 is regulated by phosphorylated through D-type cyclins.

It is reported that, in MANCA cells, the amount of p27 is constant during the cell cycle and this data are consistent with a model wherein cyclin D/CDK complexes sequester the CDK2-dependent kinase inhibitory activity of p 27.

Conditional binding to and cell cycle-regulated inhibition of cyclin-dependent kinase complexes by p27Kip1.

Evidence is provided for cross-talk between the acquisition of quiescence, cdk activity, and G1 traverse and the results suggest an interplay between these two cell cycle transitions.

Regulation of CDK7–Carboxyl-Terminal Domain Kinase Activity by the Tumor Suppressor p16INK4A Contributes to Cell Cycle Regulation

The results suggest that p16INK4A may regulate cell cycle progression by inhibiting not only CDK4-pRb kinase activity but also by modulating CDK7-CTD kinases activity.

Advances in Brief Transcriptional Repression of the D-Type Cyclin-dependent Kinase Inhibitor p 16 by the Retinoblastoma Susceptibility Gene Product pRbt

It is reported that the p16 mRNA accumulates to a high level in cells lacking pRb function and transcription ofpl6 is repressed by pR b, providing evidence supporting a feedback regulatory loop involving pRB, p16, and cydin-dependent kinases.

p21 is a universal inhibitor of cyclin kinases

It is found that over expression of p21 inhibits the activity of each member of the cyclin/CDK family, and this results indicate that p21 may be a universal inhibitor of cyclin kinases.

Subunit rearrangement of the cyclin-dependent kinases is associated with cellular transformation.

The pattern of subunit rearrangement of cyclin-CDK complexes in SV40-transformed cells is also shared in those containing adeno- or papilloma viral oncoproteins, and this findings suggest a mechanism by which oncogenic proteins alter the cell cycle of transformed cells.

Direct binding of cyclin D to the retinoblastoma gene product (pRb) and pRb phosphorylation by the cyclin D-dependent kinase CDK4.

The product (pRb) of the retinoblastoma gene (RB-1) prevents S-phase entry during the cell cycle, and inactivation of this growth-suppressive function is presumed to result from pRb

Proliferating cell nuclear antigen and p21 are components of multiple cell cycle kinase complexes.

It is shown that PCNA and p21 are common components of a wide variety of cyclin/cyclin-dependent kinase complexes in nontransformed cells and that these quaternary complexes contain a substantial, if not major, fraction of the cell cycle kinases in asynchronously growing cells.

Sequences within the conserved cyclin box of human cyclin A are sufficient for binding to and activation of cdc2 kinase

The approach was to map the regions required on the cyclin A molecule for interaction with cdc2 to two small noncontiguous stretches of amino acids, both located within the conserved cyclin box domain of the protein, which suggests that the Cyclin family members may have conserved a similar mechanism to bind and activate cyclin-dependent kinases.
