Key findings:

  • We have used a list of E2F-regulated genes that has been generated by microarray analysis for a genetic approach to ask which of these targets are important for E2F function in vivo.

  • Our results show that more than half of the genes tested are able to dominantly modify dE2F1-dependent phenotypes, indicating that the expression levels of most dE2F1-regulated genes are rate-limiting for dE2F1 function.

  • We show that the depletion of Orc5 elevates the expression of a dE2F1-regulated gene.

  • Our results reveal the existence of an important feedback mechanism that can elevate dE2F1-dependent transcription in cells where ORC levels are low.
