Cyclin B in Xenopus oocytes: implications for the mechanism of pre-MPF activation.

Abstract

Using a polyclonal antibody raised against B2 cyclin from Xenopus laevis, we show that prophase-arrested Xenopus oocytes contain a stockpile of cyclin B2 protein. During progesterone-induced maturation, an increase in the synthesis of cyclin B2 is observed, although Western blotting experiments show that this new synthesis does not significantly increase… (More)
