|Other Names||Cell division cycle protein 20 homolog, p55CDC, CDC20|
|Target/Specificity||The synthetic peptide sequence used to generate the antibody AP9138a was selected from the N-term region of human CDC20. A 10 to 100 fold molar excess to antibody is recommended. Precise conditions should be optimized for a particular assay.|
|Format||Synthetic peptide was lyophilized with 100% acetonitrile and is supplied as a powder. Reconstitute with 0.1 ml DI water for a final concentration of 1 mg/ml.|
|Storage||Maintain refrigerated at 2-8°C for up to 6 months. For long term storage store at -20°C.|
|Precautions||This product is for research use only. Not for use in diagnostic or therapeutic procedures.|
|Function||Required for full ubiquitin ligase activity of the anaphase promoting complex/cyclosome (APC/C) and may confer substrate specificity upon the complex. Is regulated by MAD2L1: in metaphase the MAD2L1-CDC20-APC/C ternary complex is inactive and in anaphase the CDC20-APC/C binary complex is active in degrading substrates. The CDC20-APC/C complex positively regulates the formation of synaptic vesicle clustering at active zone to the presynaptic membrane in postmitotic neurons. CDC20-APC/C-induced degradation of NEUROD2 induces presynaptic differentiation.|
|Cellular Location||Cytoplasm, cytoskeleton, microtubule organizing center, centrosome Cytoplasm, cytoskeleton, spindle pole|

CDC20 is an activating regulatory factor for the APC/C (anaphase promoting complex/cyclosome). It activates the ubiquitination activity of the APC/C. CDC20 confers a strict destruction-box (D-box) dependence on APC. Levels of CDC20, as well as its binding to APC, peak in mitosis and decrease drastically at early G1.
