Critical role of cyclin D1 nuclear import in cardiomyocyte proliferation.

Abstract

Mammalian cardiomyocytes irreversibly lose their capacity to proliferate soon after birth, yet the underlying mechanisms have been unclear. Cyclin D1 and its partner, cyclin-dependent kinase 4 (CDK4), are important for promoting the G1-to-S phase progression via phosphorylation of the retinoblastoma (Rb) protein. Mitogenic stimulation induces hypertrophic… (More)
