High impact information on cdc2

  • These results, which are identical to those in goldfish, strongly suggest that cyclin B is synthesized from stored (masked) mRNA after 17alpha,20beta-DP stimulation and that its binding to the preexisting cdc2 allows cdk7 to activate MPF [1].

Biological context of cdc2

  • When treated with 17alpha,20beta-dihydroxy-4-pregnen-3-one (17alpha,20beta-DP), a natural maturation-inducing hormone in fishes, fully grown zebrafish oocytes are induced to mature via the activation of the maturation-promoting factor (MPF), which consists of cdc2 (a catalytic subunit) and cyclin B (a regulatory subunit) [1].
