Proteolysis and DNA replication: the CDC34 requirement in the Xenopus egg cell cycle.

Yew PR , Kirschner MW .


Abstract
The cell division cycle gene, CDC34, is required for ubiquitin-mediated degradation of G1 regulators and cell cycle progression through the transition from G1 to S phase in budding yeast. A CDC34 requirement for S phase onset in higher eukaryotes has not been established. Studies of the simple embryonic cell cycle of Xenopus laevis eggs demonstrated that Cdc34p in a large molecular size complex was required in the initiation of DNA replication. Cdc34p appears to regulate the initiation function of Cdk2-cyclin E, perhaps through the degradation of the Xenopus cdk inhibitor, Xic1.
