Summation

Phosphorylation of WDR77 (MEP50) on threonine-5 by cyclin-dependent kinase 4 (CDK4), as part of the complex cyclin D1: CDK4:PRMT5:WDR77 enhances PRMT5:WDR77 methyltransferase activity, which triggers events associated with cyclin D1-dependent neoplastic growth (Aggarwal et al. 2011). Cyclin D1 is an allosteric regulator of CDK4 and CDK6, mediating growth factor-dependent G1-phase progression. Growth factor stimulation induces cyclin D1 expression, its association with CDK4 and nuclear accumulation during mid-G1. Active cyclin D1:CDK4 catalyzes the phosphorylation-dependent inactivation of retinoblastoma (RB) family proteins (Diehl 2002, Gladden & Diehl 2005). Following the G1/S transition, cyclin D1 accumulation is opposed by phosphorylation of threonine-286 (T286) by glycogen synthase kinase 3 beta (GSK3beta), which promotes cyclin D1 nuclear export (Alt et al. 2000).
