Emi2 is essential to keep oocytes arrested until fertilization. However, how this arrest is implemented exclusively in meiosis II and not prematurely in meiosis I has until now remained enigmatic. Using mouse and frog oocytes, we show here that cyclin B3, an understudied B-type cyclin, is essential to keep Emi2 levels low in meiosis I. Direct phosphorylation of Emi2 at an evolutionarily highly conserved site by Cdk1/cyclin B3 targets Emi2 for degradation. In contrast, Cdk1/cyclin B1 is inefficient in Emi2 phosphorylation, and this provides a molecular explanation for the requirement of different B-type cyclins for oocyte maturation. Cyclin B3 degradation at exit from meiosis I enables Emi2 accumulation and thus timely arrest in meiosis II. Our findings illuminate the evolutionarily conserved mechanisms that control oocyte arrest for fertilization at the correct cell-cycle stage, which is essential for embryo viability.</dcterms:abstract> <dc:creator>Demmig, Rebecca</dc:creator> <dspace:isPartOfCollection rdf:resource=""/> <dc:contributor>Mayer, Thomas U.</dc:contributor> <dc:creator>Wehrle, Patrick</dc:creator> <dcterms:available rdf:datatype="">2022-11-22T15:57:08Z</dcterms:available> <dc:creator>Bouftas, Nora</dc:creator> <dc:rights>terms-of-use</dc:rights> <dc:contributor>Baack, Martina</dc:contributor> <dcterms:title>Cyclin B3 implements timely vertebrate oocyte arrest for fertilization</dcterms:title> <dc:creator>Wassmann, Katja</dc:creator> <dc:creator>Al Abdallah, Hiba</dc:creator> <dc:contributor>Walter, Melanie</dc:contributor> <dc:creator>Mayer, Thomas U.</dc:creator> <dc:creator>Schneider, Lena</dc:creator> <dc:language>eng</dc:language> <dc:contributor>Demmig, Rebecca</dc:contributor> <dc:contributor>Heim, Andreas</dc:contributor> </rdf:Description> </rdf:RDF>
