Summation

APC/C:Cdc20 is first activated at the prometaphase/metaphase transition through phosphorylation of core subunits of the APC/C by mitotic kinases as well as recruitment of the APC/C activator protein Cdc20. APC/C:Cdc20 promotes the multiubiquitination and ordered degradation of Cyclin A and Nek2 degradation in prometaphase followed by Cyclin B and securin in metaphase (Reviewed in Castro et al., 2005).
