Abstract : The cyclin B-CDK1 complex is a key regulator of mitotic entry.
Using PP242, a specific ATP-competitive inhibitor of mTOR kinase, we provide evidence that the mTOR signalling pathway controls cyclin B mRNA translation following fertilization in Sphaerechinus granu-laris and Paracentrotus lividus.
We show that PP242 inhibits the degradation of the cap-dependent translation repressor 4E-BP eukaryotic initiation factor 4E-Binding Protein.
PP242 inhibits global protein synthesis, delays cyclin B accumulation, cyclin B-CDK1 complex activation and consequently entry into the mitotic phase of the cell cycle triggered by fertilization.
PP242 inhibits cyclin B mRNA recruitment into active polysomes triggered by fertilization.
An amount of cyclin B mRNA present in active polysomes appears to be insensitive to PP242 treatment.
Taken together, our results suggest that, following sea urchin egg fertilization, cyclin B mRNA translation is controlled by two independent mechanisms: a PP242-sensitive and an additional PP242-insentitive mechanism.
