Solution Summary

The expert examines mutation characteristics of the Gene that Codes for CAK.

Solution Preview

CAK, wee1 and cdc25 are all involved in cell cycle control through the modulation of cyclin-dependent kinase (Cdk) activity.

The Cdk-cyclin complex acts at the G2/M cell checkpoint to activate mitosis, once certain critical conditions such as cell size have been met. It can be inhibited by CDK phosphorylation at T14 and Y15, and requires Cdk phosphorylation at T161 in order to function.

The three genes listed above have the following ...
