Sample Data :Western blot using affinity purified Anti-Cyclin E2 antibody shows specific detection of Cyclin E2. Cell extracts over-expressing mouse Cyclin E1 (lane 1) and Cyclin E2 (lane 2) were electrophoresed, transferred to nitrocellulose, and probed with the anti-Cyclin E2 antibody.
Scientific Background :Cyclin E was first identified by its ability to rescue growth of yeast deficient in G1 Cyclins, indicating a role in G1 or G1/S transitions. Over-expression of Cyclin E has been observed in a variety of human tumors. Multiple isoforms of Cyclin E are expressed in tumors but not in normal tissues, suggesting a post-transcriptional regulation of Cyclin E. Cyclin E2 associates with Cdk2 in a functional kinase complex that is inhibited by both p27Kip1 and p21Cip1. The catalytic activity associated with Cyclin E2 complexes is cell cycle regulated and peaks at the G1/S transition. Unlike Cyclin E1, which is expressed in most proliferating normal and tumor cells, Cyclin E2 levels were low to undetectable in non-transformed cells and increased significantly in tumor-derived cells.
