Checkpoint control kinases is a term used to describe a group of enzymes that regulate progression of a cell through the cell cycle. Catastrophic genetic damage can occur if cells progress to the next phase of the cell cycle before the previous phase is properly completed.

Checkpoint control kinases is a term used to describe a group of enzymes that regulate progression of a cell through the cell cycle. Catastrophic genetic damage can occur if cells progress to the next phase of the cell cycle before the previous phase is properly completed. Checkpoint control kinases function to halt the cell cycle at these critical points. Examples of checkpoint control kinases include ATM, ATR, DNA-PK, Chk1, Chk2, Wee1 and mTOR.
For a cell to progress through the cycle and replicate, it must pass through checkpoints between phases to ensure that DNA is replicated correctly and that chromosomes segregate. These checkpoints may stop the cell cycle after DNA damage, loss of DNA replication or disruption of the mitotic spindle, in order for repair processes to take place. If cells containing damaged DNA were to divide, the errors would be transmitted to daughter cells, generating genomic instability and resulting in tumorigenesis or apoptosis.
Tocris offers the following scientific literature for Checkpoint Control Kinases to showcase our products. We invite you to request* or download your copy today!

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.
