CDC25A gene produces a group of proteins that play a role in activating cyclin-dependent kinase (CDK) complex for the regulation of cell division cycles. CDC25A gene is located on chromosome 3 short arm region 21 (3q21) (8).
During the release of cyclin B, the cell division cycle enters M phase.
To eradicate cancer, oncologists use anticancer drugs, which either slow down or block the cell division cycle causing cell death [15].
The Andersen-Gratton study also revealed that the circadian clock within stem cells shifts the timing of cell division such that the stages of the cell division cycle that are most sensitive to DNA damage are avoided during times of maximum oxidative phosphorylation.
Most chemotherapy drugs targets and attack cells at a particular phase of the cell division cycle. In healthy cells where the clock and cell cycle are synchronised this will be at a particular time of the day while in cancer cells that are not synchronised cell division will be occurring all round the clock.
