Summation

Activation of the cyclin A:Cdc2 complexes at mitosis requires the removal of the inhibitory phosphate groups on Cdc2 (CDK1). This dephosphorylation is achieved by the activity of the CDC25A phosphatase (Timofeev et al. 2009). CDC25A, CDC25B, and CDC25C are kept inactive during interphase and are activated at the G2/M transition (see Wolfe and Gould 2004).
