The length of the cell cycle is highly variable, even within the cells of a single organism. In humans, the frequency of cell turnover ranges from a few hours in early embryonic development, to an average of two to five days for epithelial cells, and to an entire human lifetime spent in G 0 by specialized cells, such as cortical neurons or cardiac muscle cells. There is also variation in the time that a cell spends in each phase of the cell cycle.
Control of the Cell Cycle
The cell cycle , or cell-division cycle , is the series of events that take place in a cell that cause it to divide into two daughter cells. These events include the duplication of its DNA DNA replication and some of its organelles , and subsequently the partitioning of its cytoplasm and other components into two daughter cells in a process called cell division. In cells with nuclei eukaryotes , i. During interphase, the cell grows, accumulating nutrients needed for mitosis, and replicates its DNA and some of its organelles. During the mitotic phase, the replicated chromosomes, organelles, and cytoplasm separate into two new daughter cells.
Cell cycle regulators
This section will consider submissions that focus on the cell cycle, including mitosis, meiosis, cytokinesis and cell cycle control. The conserved NDR-family kinase Sid2p localizes to the contractile ring during fission yeast cytokinesis to promote ring constriction, septation, and completion of cell division. Previous studies have found th Authors: Lois Kwon, Emma M. Magee, Alexis Crayton and John W. Content type: Research article.
The cell cycle is tightly regulated on many different levels to ensure properly controlled proliferation. Deregulation of cell cycle regulation is a hallmark of cancer. These chapters written by experts provide an updated view on how the cell cycle is regulated in vivo and about the involvement of cell cycle regulators in cancer.

Cell Cycle Control
It seems that you're in Germany. We have a dedicated site for Germany. A collection of new reviews and protocols from leading experts in cell cycle regulation, Cell Cycle Control: Mechanisms and Protocols, Second Edition presents a comprehensive guide to recent technical and theoretical advancements in the field. Beginning with the overviews of various cell cycle regulations, this title presents the most current protocols and state-of-the-art techniques used to generate latest findings in cell cycle regulation, such as protocols to analyze cell cycle events and molecules.
It is essential that daughter cells be exact duplicates of the parent cell. Mistakes in the duplication or distribution of the chromosomes lead to mutations that may be passed forward to every new cell produced from the abnormal cell. To prevent a compromised cell from continuing to divide, there are internal control mechanisms that operate at three main cell cycle checkpoints at which the cell cycle can be stopped until conditions are favorable. The first checkpoint G 1 determines whether all conditions are favorable for cell division to proceed. This checkpoint is the point at which the cell irreversibly commits to the cell-division process.
Cell Cycle Regulation
Cell cycle is required by both unicellular and multicellular organisms to transmit their genetic information. It is well known that the major regulatory mechanism of eukaryotic cell cycle is determined by cyclin-dependent kinases CDKs and their cyclin partners. On the other hand, an increasing number of studies have shown that the regulation of cell cycle is quite subtle involving many factors. Research papers in this issue provide new insights into the regulation of cell cycle. Mitosis is an energy-cost process, in which homologous chromosomes have to be segregated and moved into two daughter cells.
