CDC25C (also known as cell division cycle 25 homolog C) is a member of the CDC25 phosphatase family. CDC25C is highly conserved during evolution and it plays a key role in the regulation of cell division. CDC25C activates the partially purified p34 (cdc2)/cyclin B complex and directs the dephosphorylation of cyclin B-bound CDC2 and triggers entry into mitosis (1). CDC25C also suppresses p53-induced growth arrest. The regulation of CDC25B phosphorylation by p38 is a critical event for initiating the G2/M checkpoint after ultraviolet radiation (2).
