APC/C activator protein CDC20 - P26309 (CDC20_YEAST)


Protein Feature View of PDB entries mapped to a UniProtKB sequence  

Activator protein that regulates the ubiquitin ligase activity and substrate specificity of the anaphase promoting complex/cyclosome (APC/C). At the metaphase-to-anaphase transition, recognizes and binds proteins containing a D-box including the B-type cyclins CLB2 and CLB5, HSL1 and securin PDS1, and recruits them in a C-box-dependent manner to the APC/C for ubiquitination and subsequent proteolysis. Required for sister chromatid separation and disassembly of the mitotic spindle. Target of the spindle checkpoint pathway through participation in the mitotic checkpoint complex (MCC) and the MAD2-CDC20 subcomplex. MCC and presumably the MAD2-CDC20 subcomplex inhibit the ubiquitin ligase activity of the anaphase promoting complex/cyclosome (APC/C) by preventing its activation by CDC20 until proper attachment of all chromosomes to the spindle.

Subunit Structure
Component of the mitotic checkpoint complex (MCC) which consists of MAD2, MAD3, BUB3 and CDC20, and of the MAD2-CDC20 subcomplex, both of which appear to be assembled during mitoisis independently of the kinetochore. In mitose-arrested cells, MAD2-CDC20 occurs in a larger amount than MCC. MCC associates with the with the APC/C complex. Interacts with MAD2, MAD3, BUB3, HSL1 and PDS1. UniProt
The N-terminal destruction box (D-box) acts as a recognition signal for degradation via the ubiquitin-proteasome pathway. UniProt

Data origin/color codes
The vertical color bar on the left side indicates data provenance.
Data in green originates from UniProtKB  
Variation data (sourced from UniProt) shows non-genetic variation from the ExPASy   and dbSNP   websites.
Data in yellow originates from Pfam  , by interacting with the HMMER3 web site  
Data in purple originates from Phosphosite  .
Data in orange originates from the SCOP   (version 1.75) and SCOPe   (version 2.04) classifications.
Data in grey has been calculated using BioJava  . Protein disorder predictions are based on JRONN (Troshin, P. and Barton, G. J. unpublished), a Java implementation of RONN  
  • Red: potentially disorderd region
  • Blue: probably ordered region.
Hydropathy has been calculated using a sliding window of 15 residues and summing up scores from standard hydrophobicity tables.
  • Red: hydrophobic
  • Blue: hydrophilic.
Data in lilac represent the genomic exon structure projected onto the UniProt sequence.
Data in blue originates from PDB
  • Secstruc: Secondary structure projected from representative PDB entries onto the UniProt sequence.
Sequence Mismatches It is now possible to see information about expression tags, cloning artifacts, and many other details related to sequence mismatches.
Icons represent a number of different sequence modifications that can be observed in PDB files. For example the 'T' icon T represents expression tags that have been added to the sequence. The 'E' icon E represents an engineered mutation. However, besides these two, there are many other icons. For more information about the meaning and exact position of a sequence modification, move the cursor over the icon.
