Expression of mouse Fbxw7 isoforms is regulated in a cell cycle- or p53-dependent manner.

Fbxw7 is the F-box protein component of an SCF-type ubiquitin ligase that contributes to the ubiquitin-dependent degradation of cell cycle activators and oncoproteins. Three isoforms (alpha, beta, and gamma) of Fbxw7 are produced from mRNAs with distinct 5' exons. We have now investigated regulation of Fbxw7 expression in mouse tissues. Fbxw7alpha mRNA was… CONTINUE READING
