A protein present in extracts of the dinoflagellate Gonyaulax that was capable of binding an antibody directed against the conserved Cdc2 kinase epitope EGVPSTAIREISLLKE was characterized by Western blot analysis and DNA sequencing and shown not to encode a Cdc2 kinase. The amount, size, and isoelectric point of the immunoreactive species were invariant over a 24-hour period (encompassing S and M phases), and the DNA sequence of a cDNA isolated by immunologic screening showed that no conserved… CONTINUE READING
