Inactivation and mutations of pRb that prevent the E2F binding and its inactivation by pRb predispose to cancers both in animal models and in humans. , 1997; Sellers and Kaelin, 1997). , 1996). , 1997). Other genetic changes found in human cancers affect Cdk4, Cdk2, cyclin E, and the CKIs p15INK4B, p16INK4A, and p57KIP2 (Donnellan and Chetty, 1999). Up-regulation of the cyclin- D-dependent kinase pathways results in enhanced phosphorylation of pRb, which suppresses the negative regulatory effect of pRb on E2F and activates the E2F transcription factor (Fig.

It appears that the phosphatases function differently in the cell cycle regulation. , 1998; Nilsson and Hoffmann, 2000). Cdc25C is best characterized for its function in G2-M regulation by activation of Cdk1 (Fig. 3). , 1997). , 1997), much evidence in both yeast and human cells points to the negative regulation of Cdc25C as a major event in G2 checkpoint control. , 1997). , 1997). It appears that the mitotic hyperphosphorylation of Cdc25C increases its intrinsic phosphatase activity (Lew and Kornbluth, 1996).
