cell cycle

n
(Genetics) the growth cycle of eukaryotic cells. It is divided into five stages, known as G0, in which the cell is quiescent, G1 and G2, in which it increases in size, S, in which it duplicates its DNA, and M, in which it undergoes mitosis and divides

cell′ cy`cle


n.
the cycle of growth and asexual reproduction of a cell, consisting of interphase followed in actively dividing cells by prophase, metaphase, anaphase, and telophase.

Release date- 13082019 - Scientists from EPFL's Institute of Bioengineering have discovered that our circadian clock and our cell-cycle are in fact, synchronized.
CpdA inducing G(1)/S cell-cycle arrest as well as the death of MM cells is p27-dependent, but this programmed cell death was caspase-independent, and instead occurred through activation of autophagy (13).
The current literature indicates the importance of tumor cell-cycle when selecting or designing clinical therapeutics.

The transcription factor BTB and CNC homology 1 (Bach1) regulates genes involved in apoptosis, the oxidative stress response, mitotic chromatin dynamics, and the cell-cycle [1-5].
Knockdown of Sec 8 promotes cell-cycle arrest at G/S phase by inducing p21 via control of FOXO proteins.
Checkpoint regulation mechanisms act through negative intracellular signals that arrest the cell cycle, rather than through the removal of positive signals that stimulate cell-cycle progression.
This class of compounds have been found to arrest cell-cycle progression either at G1/S or at G2/M boundaries [2] and inhibit cell proliferation.
Moreover, we showed that the cell-cycle arrest was accompanied by down-regulation of CCNA1, CCND1, CCND2, CCNH, CDKN1B, MCM2, ORC6L, and WEE1 and upregulation of CDC7, CDK6, CDK7, E2F3, and RB1.
