Description

Co-ordinated progression through the cell cycle is essential for the maintenance of genomic integrity. 14-3-3 proteins play particularly important roles in coordinating progression of cells through the cell cycle, regulating their response to DNA damage, and influencing life-death decisions following internal injury or external cytokine-mediated cues. 14-3-3 proteins function at several key points in G1/S- and G2/M-transition by binding to regulatory proteins and modulating their function. The association with 14-3-3 proteins requires a specific phosphorylation of the protein ligand and mediates cell cycle arrest. 14-3-3 binding may lead to cytoplasmic sequestration of the protein ligand but may also have other functional consequences (Ref.1 and 2).

14-3-3 proteins regulate the onset and timing of mitosis in cycling cells, play a critical role [...]
