Posttranslational modifications of p27kip1 determine its binding specificity to different cyclins and cyclin-dependent kinases in vivo.
Using 2-dimensional gel electrophoresis (2D-gel) analysis, we show here that cell-cycle entry is associated with a significant increase in p27(kip1) phosphorylation in human primary B cells. A similar pattern of increase in p27(kip1) phosphorylation was also seen in 2 fast-growing tumor cell lines, Burkitt lymphoma cell line BL40 and breast carcinoma cell line Cal51, where inactive p27(kip1) is expressed at high levels. Detailed analysis revealed for the first time that different cyclins and ...Expand abstract
