ABSTRACT
Nuclear volume and the number of nuclear pore complexes (NPCs) on the nucleus almost double during interphase in dividing cells. How these events are coordinated with the cell cycle is poorly understood, particularly in mammalian cells. We report here, based on newly developed techniques for visualizing NPC formation, that cyclin-dependent kinases (Cdks), especially Cdk1 and Cdk2, promote interphase NPC formation in human dividing cells. Cdks seem to drive an early step of NPC formation because Cdk inhibition suppressed generation of 'nascent pores', which we argue are immature NPCs under the formation process. Consistent with this, Cdk inhibition disturbed proper expression and localization of some nucleoporins, including Elys/Mel-28, which triggers postmitotic NPC assembly. Strikingly, Cdk suppression did not notably affect nuclear growth, suggesting that interphase NPC formation and nuclear growth have distinct regulation mechanisms.

    Cell division cycle 25 (CDC25) phosphatases are key actors in eukaryotic cell cycle control. They are responsible for the dephosphorylations that activate the cyclin-dependent kinases (CDK) at specific stages of the cell cycle. Human CDC25A, CDC25B and CDC25C are also central targets and...

    Cyclin-dependent kinases (CDKs) play a central role in the orderly transition from one phase of the eukaryotic mitotic cell division cycle to the next. In this context, p27Kip1 (one of the CIP/KIP family of CDK specific inhibitors in mammals) or its functional analogue in other eukarya prevents...

    The accurate transition from G1 phase of the cell cycle to S phase is crucial for the control of eukaryotic cell proliferation, and its misregulation promotes oncogenesis. During G1 phase, growth-dependent cyclin-dependent kinase (CDK) activity promotes DNA replication and initiates G1-to-S...

    One of the main engines that drives cellular transformation is the loss of proper control of the mammalian cell cycle. The cyclin-dependent kinase inhibitor p21 (also known as p21WAF1/Cip1) promotes cell cycle arrest in response to many stimuli. It is well positioned to function as both a sensor...

    Mitotic progression in eukaryotic cells depends upon the activation of cyclin-dependent kinase 1 (CDK1), followed by its inactivation through the anaphase-promoting complex (APC)/cyclosome-mediated degradation of M-phase cyclins. Previous work revealed that expression of a constitutively active...
