In diapausing eggs of the silkworm Bombyx mori, embryonic cells are arrested at G2 phase. The ability to undertake cell division is resumed in the course of diapause termination caused by such a treatment as acclimation to 5 degrees C. As an initial trial to investigate the relationship between diapause and embryonic cell cycling, we have cloned and sequenced two Bombyx cDNAs encoding two distinct cdc2-related Ser/Thr protein kinases. One (Bm cdc2) encoded a 37.0 kDa protein which had all of… CONTINUE READING
