Hydroxyurea Induces Cytokinesis Arrest in Cells Expressing a Mutated Sterol-14α-Demethylase in the Ergosterol Biosynthesis Pathway
TLDR
It is hypothesize that in addition to the RNR, HU may have a secondary unknown target(s) inside cells, and identification of such a target may greatly improve the chemotherapies that employ HU or help to expand the clinical usage of this drug for additional pathological conditions.
Regulation of Chk1 by its C-terminal domain.
TLDR
It is shown that truncation of the C-terminal domain inactivates Chk1 in vivo, and additional mutations within theC- terminal domain are identified that activate ectopically expressed Chk2 without the need for activating phosphorylation.
Regulation of Chk1 kinase by autoinhibition and ATR-mediated phosphorylation.
TLDR
It is shown that the C-terminal region of Xenopus Chk1 contains an autoinhibitory region (AIR), which largely overlaps with a bipartite, unusually long ( approximately 85-amino acid) nuclear localization signal.
The kinase domain residue serine 173 of Schizosaccharomyces pombe Chk1 kinase is critical for the response to DNA replication stress
TLDR
It is concluded that serine 173, which is equivalent to lysine 166 in the activation loop of human Chk1, is only critical in DNA polymerase mutants or when forks collapse in the absence of Cds1.
The activation loop residue serine 173 of S.pombe Chk1 kinase is critical for the response to DNA replication stress
TLDR
It is concluded that the removal of serine 173 impairs the phosphorylation of a Chk1 target that is important to protect cells from DNA replication stress.
CHK1 kinase inhibition: identification of allosteric hits using MD simulations, pharmacophore modeling, docking and MM-PBSA calculations.
TLDR
In this study, different computational drug design techniques were employed to identify new CHK1 inhibitors targeting its allosteric pocket, a promising strategy to overcome the resistance problem of chemotherapeutic agents resulting from the overexpression ofCHK1 that enables cancerous cells to repair their chemotherapy-induced DNA damage.

Replication checkpoint enforced by kinases Cds1 and Chk1.
TLDR
Cds1 and Chk1 appear to jointly enforce the replication checkpoint, and HU-induced arrest of cell division was abolished in cds1 chk1 cells.
Crystal structure of the catalytic subunit of cyclic adenosine monophosphate-dependent protein kinase.
The crystal structure of the catalytic subunit of cyclic adenosine monophosphate-dependent protein kinase complexed with a 20-amino acid substrate analog inhibitor has been solved and partially
Conservation of the Chk1 checkpoint pathway in mammals: linkage of DNA damage to Cdk regulation through Cdc25.
TLDR
Results suggest a model whereby in response to DNA damage, Chk1 phosphorylates and inhibits Cdc25C, thus preventing activation of the Cdc2-cyclin B complex and mitotic entry.
Structure of a peptide inhibitor bound to the catalytic subunit of cyclic adenosine monophosphate-dependent protein kinase.
The structure of a 20-amino acid peptide inhibitor bound to the catalytic subunit of cyclic AMP-dependent protein kinase, and its interactions with the enzyme, are described. The x-ray crystal
Chk1 complements the G2/M checkpoint defect and radiosensitivity of ataxia-telangiectasia cells
TLDR
Results suggest that chk1 when overexpressed acts downstream from ATM to restore the G2 checkpoint in these cells and correct the radiosensitive phenotype.
Control of the DNA damage checkpoint by chk1 and rad53 protein kinases through distinct mechanisms.
TLDR
A model in which Chk1 and Rad53 function in parallel through Pds1 and Cdc5, respectively, to prevent anaphase entry and mitotic exit after DNA damage is supported, providing a possible explanation for the role of CDC5 in DNA damage checkpoint adaptation.
The Xenopus Chk1 Protein Kinase Mediates a Caffeine-sensitive Pathway of Checkpoint Control in Cell-free Extracts
TLDR
The results indicate that caffeine disrupts the checkpoint pathway containing Xchk1, a highly phosphorylated protein kinase which is abolished by caffeine, an agent which attenuates checkpoint control.
A graphics model building and refinement system for macromolecules
TLDR
A model building and refinement system is described for use with a Vector General 3400 display that has been used to assist in difference Fourier map interpretation at medium and high resolution, and to build a protein molecule into a multiple isomorphous replacement phased electron density map.
Mitotic and G2 checkpoint control: regulation of 14-3-3 protein binding by phosphorylation of Cdc25C on serine-216.
TLDR
Results indicate that serine-216 phosphorylation and 14-3-3 binding negatively regulate Cdc25C and identify CDC25C as a potential target of checkpoint control in human cells.
