VARI | 2013 Figure 1 Figure 1: Dbf4 is a molecular scaffold for three protein kinases and controls genome integrity at multiple levels. Dbf4 binds Cdc7 kinase through C-terminal sequences to initiate DNA replication. Dbf4 binds Cdc5 (Polo kinase) and Rad53 (Chk2 kinase) through adjacent N-terminal sequences to control cell cycle progression in response to spindle and/or genomic stresses.
