  • family of mitogen-activated D-type cyclins
  • CATEGORY signaling cytokine
    SUBCELLULAR LOCALIZATION     plasma membrane
    basic FUNCTION
  • regulator of progression through G1 phase during the cell cycle 3
  • involved in the loss of cell cycle control in a small fraction of malignant glioma
  • having important implications for a role for lamin A/C in muscle differentiation
  • playing a crucial role in adipocyte differentiation by regulating mitotic clonal expansion
  • central coordinator that controls the organization of a complex set of proteins that regulate autophagy, formation of the monocyte-adhesive hyaluronan matrix, and CEBPA-mediated lipogenesis
  • role of CCND3/CDK11A complex in repressing the Schwann cells proliferation and inducing its apoptosis
  • primary driver of the cell cycle, in cooperation with CCND1 that integrates extracellular mitogenic signaling
  • predominantly regulate progression through the cell cycle by their interactions with cyclin-dependent kinases (CDKs)
  • uniquely required for germinal center progression
  • selectively required for proliferative expansion of germinal center B cells
  • primes myoblasts for differentiation by enhancing muscle specific gene expression and cell cycle exit
  • CCND3 and its partner CDK6 were required for the proliferation of Burkitt lymphoma (BL)
  • regulates the number of cell divisions that erythroid precursors undergo during terminal differentiation, thereby controlling erythrocyte size and number
  • likely subnuclear compartmentalization enables CCND3 to drive cell cycle progression and repress V gene accessibility, thereby ensuring coordination of proliferation with immunoglobulin recombination
  • critically required for proper developmental progression of myogenic progenitors
  • plays a cell-autonomous and nonredundant function in regulating the dynamic balance between proliferation, differentiation, and self-renewal that normally establishes an appropriate pool size of adult satellite cells
  • CELLULAR PROCESS cell cycle
    a component CCND3/CDK11A complex
    small molecule
  • CDK4 and CDK6 protein kinase to form a serine/threonine kinase holoenzyme complex
  • binding to LMNA
  • binding partner of MAPK4
  • key direct target of TCF3 is CCND3, a regulator of the G1-S phase transition that is required for an effective germinal center reaction
  • nuclear IGF2BP3-HNRNPM complex is important for the efficient synthesis of CCND1, CCND3 and CCNG1 and for the proliferation of human cancer cells
  • CCND3 protein that drives immature T cell proliferation is essential for transformation of ATM-deficient thymocytes
  • DYRK1A restrains CCND3 protein levels by phosphorylating T283 to induce its degradation
