Cloning of a B-type cyclin homolog from Bombyx mori and the profiles of its mRNA level in non-diapause and diapause eggs


 To understand the molecular mechanism of G2-arrest of cell division in embryonic diapause of the silkworm, Bombyx mori, we have cloned a cDNA encoding a Bombyx homolog of B-type cyclin. Levels of Bm cyclin-B mRNA were examined during diapause stage and early embryogenesis. The results showed that this G2-arrest did not always correspond to lowered… (More)
