General description

Cell division cycle protein 23 homolog, also known as Anaphase-promoting complex subunit 8 (APC8) or Cyclosome subunit 8, and encoded by the gene name CDC23 or ANAPC8, is a highly conserved component of the anaphase promoting complex/cyclosome (APC/C), a cell cycle-regulated E3 ubiquitin ligase that controls progression through mitosis and the G1 phase of the cell cycle. APC/C is responsible for degrading anaphase inhibitors, mitotic cyclins, and spindle-associated proteins ensuring that events of mitosis take place in proper sequence. The individual APC/C components mRNA and protein levels are expressed at approximately the same levels in most tissues and cell lines, suggesting that they perform their functions as part of a complex. In Drosophila, silencing of APC8 results in developmental delay and pupal lethality with elevated levels of apoptosis, high mitotic index, and delayed or blocked mitosis.
