CDKs and Cyclins

Hi,
I am a third year student at Imperial College London and as part of my 
degree I have to do a dissertation. The subject that I choose was CDKs 
and Cyclins. I intend to centre on the cell cycle for obvious reasons, 
but try to bring in other areas in which cyclins are involved that may 
not immediately be thought of as part of the cell cycle.
At the moment I have: 
cell cycle,
involvement in phosphate uptake in yeast,
neurite outgrowth,
transcription machinery cyclins,
interaction with tyrosine kinase pathways e.g. growth factors,
possible involvement in once per cell cycle DNA replication.

I would also like to look at structure and homologies of cdks and cyclins 
and the relevance to function.

Any help with good references, other areas of cyclin involvement or 
comments and ideas on why cyclins are involved in processes outside the 
cell cycle would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks
Stuart
