Mitotic regulation of ribosomal protein S6 kinases

Jameel Shah

Appointment Period: 2000-2001 / Grant Year: [16]

Jameel ShahMy project during this training period involved the study of regulation of ribosomal protein S6 kinases during the mitotic phase of the mammalian cell cycle. The primary mechanism of mitotic control of S6 kinases appears to be through serine/threonine phosphorylation. Therefore, this project emphasized studying site-specific phosphorylation, which consequently is heavily proline-directed serine/threonine phosphorylation in mitosis. A study of candidate mitotic S6 kinases indicated that cdc2 is the likely mitotic S6 kinase.
