anaphase-promoting complex [APC, anaphase-promoting complex (APC/C) (cyclosome)]
Glossary of The Cell (5th ed.) by Alberts et al. (2008)
- Ubiquitin ligase that catalyzes the ubiquitylation and destruction of securin and M- and S-cyclins, initiating the separation of sister chromatids in the metaphase-to-anaphase transition during mitosis.
Glossary of "Plant Biology (1st ed.)" by Graham et al. (2003)
- A cluster of proteins that induces the breakdown of cohesin proteins, thus facilitating the separation of chromatids during mitosis.
