Cell Cycle Inhibitors

Cell cycle inhibitors slow or stop cell cycle progression through various mechanisms. Cell cycle arrest can be induced at different stages, decreasing the rate of cell division and the number of actively cycling cells.

Cell Cycle & DNA Damage Repair Poster

In normal cells, each stage of the cell cycle is tightly regulated, however in cancer cells many genes and proteins that are involved in the regulation of the cell cycle are mutated or over expressed. Adapted from the 2015 Cancer Product Guide, Edition 3, this poster summarizes the stages of the cell cycle and DNA repair. It also highlights strategies for enhancing replicative stress in cancer cells to force mitotic catastrophe and cell death.
