Conservation and function of a potential substrate-binding domain in the yeast Clb5 B-type cyclin.


Cyclin A contains a region implicated in binding to the p27 inhibitor and to substrates. There is strong evolutionary conservation of surface residues contributing to this region in many cyclins, including yeast B-type cyclins, despite the absence of a yeast p27 homolog. The yeast S-phase B-type cyclin Clb5p interacted with mammalian p27 in a two-hybrid… (More)
