In addition, the animals subjected to a lower pH level of seawater underwent changes on their gene expressions, including Spätzle, MyD88, Notch, Gram-negative bacteria binding protein, prophenoloxidase, Apoptosis inhibitor 5, Trachealess, Caveolin-1 and Cyclin K.
Phylogenetic analysis of CDK and cyclin proteins in premetazoan lineages.
Shanghai, China. In Bmc Evol Biol, 2013
With respect to cyclins, cyclin C, H, L, Y subfamilies, and cyclin K and T as a whole subfamily, are generally conserved in animal, fungi, and amoeba Dictyostelium discoideum.
Phosphorylation of RNA polymerase II is independent of P-TEFb in the C. elegans germline.
Atlanta, United States. In Development, 2013
RNA polymerase II (Pol II) elongation in metazoans is thought to require phosphorylation of serine 2 (Ser2-P) of the Pol II C-terminal domain (CTD) by the P-TEFb complex, CDK-9/cyclin T. Another Ser2 kinase complex, CDK-12/cyclin K, which requires upstream CDK-9 activity has been identified in Drosophila and human cells.
New insight in cdk9 function: from Tat to MyoD.
Philadelphia, United States. In Front Biosci, 2001
Cdk9 function depends on its kinase activity and also on its regulatory units: the T-family cyclins and cyclin K. Recently, several studies confirmed the role of cdk9 in different cellular processes such as signal transduction, basal transcription, HIV-Tat- and MyoD-mediated transcription and differentiation.
