Metrics details. Major currently used anticancer therapeutics either directly damage DNA or target and upset basic cell division mechanisms like DNA replication and chromosome segregation. These insults elicit activation of cell cycle checkpoints, safeguard mechanisms that cells implement to correctly complete cell cycle phases, repair damage or eventually commit suicide in case damage is unrepairable. Although cancer cells appear to be advantageously defective in some aspects of checkpoint physiology, recent acquisitions on the biochemical mechanisms of the various checkpoints are offering new therapeutic approaches against cancer. Indeed, chemical manipulation of these mechanisms is providing new therapeutic strategies and tools to increase the killing efficacy of major cancer therapeutics as well as to directly promote cancer cell death.
Cell cycle proteins as promising targets in cancer therapy
Cyclin A in cell cycle control and cancer
Paclitaxel Taxol and carboplatin induce differential cell-cycle profiles in cell lines of head and neck squamous cell carcinoma. Content of DNA is represented on the x-axis; number of cells counted is represented on the y-axis. Data represent 3 independent experiments. Molecular analyses of cell-cycle regulatory proteins in head and neck squamous cell carcinoma HNSCC after paclitaxel Taxol and carboplatin treatment. Western blotting of p53 and p21 was performed. Results represent 2 independent experiments.
Cell cycle checkpoint in cancer: a therapeutically targetable double-edged sword
Cell cycle , the ordered sequence of events that occur in a cell in preparation for cell division. The cell cycle is a four-stage process in which the cell increases in size gap 1, or G1, stage , copies its DNA synthesis, or S, stage , prepares to divide gap 2, or G2, stage , and divides mitosis , or M, stage. The stages G1, S, and G2 make up interphase, which accounts for the span between cell divisions. The proteins that play a role in stimulating cell division can be classified into four groups— growth factors , growth factor receptors , signal transducers, and nuclear regulatory proteins transcription factors.
Cyclin A is particularly interesting among the cyclin family because it can activate two different cyclin-dependent kinases CDKs and functions in both S phase and mitosis. An embryonic form of cyclin A that is only essential for spermatogenesis is also present in some organisms. In mitosis, the precise role of cyclin A is still obscure, but it may contribute to the control of cyclin B stability. Cyclin A starts to accumulate during S phase and is abruptly destroyed before metaphase. The synthesis of cyclin A is mainly controlled at the transcription level, involving E2F and other transcription factors. Consistent with its role as a key cell cycle regulator, expression of cyclin A is found to be elevated in a variety of tumors.
Pancreatic Cancer pp Cite as. All multicellular organisms arise from the division of a single cell. Thus, to generate a complex living organism, these cell divisions must be performed with extremely high fidelity and reproducibility during the development of the organism. Furthermore, in the mature, or adult, organism, tissue and organismal homeostasis must be maintained, and this requires the coordination of cell division with cell growth and cell death. These needs have led to the evolution of a cell replication process, known as the cell division cycle, that is highly conserved among all eukaryotes from simple single cellular organisms such as budding yeast to complex mammals such as humans.
Cancer is characterized by uncontrolled proliferation resulting from aberrant activity of various cell cycle proteins; therefore, cell cycle regulators are considered attractive targets in cancer therapy.
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.

Мысли его были. Он ждал, когда зазвонит прямой телефон, но звонка все не. Кто-то постучал в дверь. - Войдите, - буркнул Нуматака.
Неужели это так заметно. - Как ее зовут? - Женщина лукаво подмигнула.
