Overlapping homologous superfamilies

Family relationships


This entry represents a group of plant and fungi cyclins belonging to the P/U family. They interact preferentially with CDKA1 [PMID: 15197472]. PHO85 cyclin-7 (PCL7) from the yeast Saccharomyces cerevisiae is a partner of the cyclin-dependent kinase PHO85 forming a GLC8 kinase that phosphorylates and inactivates the phosphatase PP1-2 inhibitor GLC8 [PMID: 12407105]. PCL7 and PCL6 control activity of glycogen phosphorylase and glycogen synthase in response to nutrient availability [PMID: 11602261].
