High impact information on RnrS

  • Here we show that the initial downregulation of expression of the E2f1-target gene RnrS, which occurs during cycles 15 and 16 prior to entry into G1(17), does not require Rbf1 or p27(Dap) [1].
  • In Drosophila, ectopic vg induces expression of dE2F1 and its targets dRNR2 and string [2].
