  • Function
    Acts as a negative regulator of entry into mitosis (G2 to M transition) by protecting the nucleus from cytoplasmically activated cyclin B1-complexed CDK1 before the onset of mitosis by mediating phosphorylation of CDK1 on 'Tyr-15'. Specifically phosphorylates and inactivates cyclin B1-complexed CDK1 reaching a maximum during G2 phase and a minimum as cells enter M phase. Phosphorylation of cyclin B1-CDK1 occurs exclusively on 'Tyr-15' and phosphorylation of monomeric CDK1 does not occur. Its activity increases during S and G2 phases and decreases at M phase when it is hyperphosphorylated. A correlated decrease in protein level occurs at M/G1 phase, probably due to its degradation.
  • Sequence similarities
    Belongs to the protein kinase superfamily. Ser/Thr protein kinase family. WEE1 subfamily.
    Contains 1 protein kinase domain.
  • Post-translational
    Phosphorylated during M and G1 phases. Also autophosphorylated.
    Ubiquitinated and degraded at the onset of G2/M phase.
