Apigenin, a dietary flavonoid, inhibits proliferation of human bladder cancer T-24 cells via blocking cell cycle progression and inducing apoptosis.
Tainan City, Taiwan. In Cancer Cell Int, Dec 2014
By performing flow cytometry and Western blotting, apigenin-mediated subG1 phase acculmulation was also associated with an increase in the phospho-p53, p53, p21, and p27 levels, and with a decrease in the Cyclin A, Cyclin B1, Cyclin E, CDK2, Cdc2, and Cdc25C levels, thereby blocking cell cycle progression.
Control of sleep by cyclin A and its regulator.
New York City, United States. In Science, 2012
We show that cyclin A (CycA) and regulator of cyclin A1, essential cell cycle factors, function in postmitotic neurons to promote sleep in Drosophila melanogaster.
How APC/C-Cdc20 changes its substrate specificity in mitosis.
Cambridge, United Kingdom. In Nat Cell Biol, 2011
Cdc20 requires APC3 and APC8 to bind and activate the APC/C when the spindle assembly checkpoint is satisfied, but only APC8 when active, and APC10 is crucial for the destruction of cyclin B1 and securin, but not cyclin A
