- n. anaphase-promoting complex
Sorry, no etymologies found.
The metaphase-anaphase transition is orchestrated through proteolysis of numerous proteins by a ubiquitin protein ligase called the anaphase-promoting complex or cyclosome (APC/C).
Moshe, Y., and Hershko, A. (2007) Inhibitory factors associated with the anaphase-promoting complex / cyclosome in mitotic checkpoint.
V., and Hershko, A. (1995) The cyclosome, a large complex containing cyclin-selective ubiquitin ligase activity, targets cyclins for destruction at the end of mitosis.
This resulted in the identification of two ubiquitin-protein ligase complexes: the cyclosome, now also called anaphase-promoting complex or APC / C, involved in the degradation of mitotic cyclins and some other cell cycle regulatory proteins in exit from mitosis
Here, we report that Atf1 has a distinct role in regulating the anaphase-promoting complex/cyclosome
