          CycJ binds to cdc2 and not cdc2c.

          CycJ-deficient females with only one functional gene copy of CycA, CycB, CycB3 or CycE have a very similar fertility as those with two functional copies.

          dsRNA made from templates generated with primers directed against this gene tested in RNAi screen for effects on Kc167 and S2R+ cell morphology.

          CycJ is required for the early embryonic division cycles.

          Isolated by interaction with cdc2 and cdc2c using the interaction trap two hybrid system.

          Yeast two-hybrid system has been used to characterise Cyclin-dependent kinase interactor proteins (the prey) in hunts with either cdc2 or cdc2c as baits. CycJ interacts with cdc2c and Cks30A, and S.cerevisiae cyclin-dependent kinase to activate transcription of a reporter gene, Ecol\lacZ.

          The yeast interaction trap selection has been used to isolate cell cycle regulatory proteins that interact with cdc2 and cdc2c. CycJ interacts preferentially with cdc2c.
