6.1 Phases of Cell Cycle 6.1.1 Cell cycle –The cell cycle is process from the end of a cell division to the start of the next cell division. Cell cycle entails an ordered series of macromolecular events that lead to cell division and the production of two daughter cells each containing chromosomes identical to those of the parental cell.
6.1.2 Phases of cell cycle –The primary events of a mammalian cell cycle are replication of chromosomes and their segregation to daughter cells with extraordinarily high fidelity. –According to this, cell cycle can be divided into INTERPHASE which includes G1, S, G2 phase and DIVISION which is equal to M phase. –M phase includes MITOSIS and CYTOKINESIS –G 0 phase: not divides, perform particular functions, can return to the cell cycle when proper be stimulated.
6.2 Special Apparatus of Mitosis 6.2.1 Chromatin/Chromosome –Chromatin DNA p228 There are three kinds of sequence elements in a chromatin DNA –1 centromere –2 telomere –Several replication origins
replication origins at which DNA polymerases and other proteins initiate synthesis of DNA. centromere attach any chromosome that contains it to mitotic spindle during M phase and guarantees the proper separation of chromosomes. telomeres permit a linear chromosome to be completely replicated.
–histone codes, epigenetic phenomena –Modification of histone influence chromatin structure participate in the regulation of transcription. (1) acetylation and deacetylation Lys-NH2 the greater the acetylation, the less chromatin condensation (2) methylation Lys-NH2, Arg a process that pevents acetylation (3) phosphorylation Ser and Thr hydroxy introducing a negative charge –Epigenetic: not depend on DNA sequence
6.3 Cell Cycle Control 6.3.1 Core set of cell cycle control system cyclin cyclin dependent kinases, CDKs cyclin dependent kinases inhibitors, CKIs anaphase promoting complex, APC
cyclin A~H –G1 phase cyclin cyclin C,D,E are only synthesized at G1 phase and degraded at S phase –S phase cyclin cyclin A are only synthesized at G1 phase and degraded at M phase –M phase cyclin cyclin B synthesized at S phase and degraded at the end of M phase cyclin dependent kinase
cyclin dependent kinases, CDKs –CDKs 1~8 a kind of protein kinases who will not be fully activated unless they are binding with cyclins and phosphorylated at proper residues at the same time. –CDKs are constantly synthesized in the whole cell cycle but are selectively activated by different cyclins and promote the shift of cell cycle phases. –Table p322, –maturation promoting factor, MPF =CDK1+cyclinB, G2/M and M phase –START kinase, CDK4/6+cyclinD, G0/G1
cyclin dependent kinase inhibitors, CKIs –Selectively inhibit the kinase activity of CDKs by binding to complex of CDKs and cyclins –p21, p27, p16 anaphase-promoting complex, APC –is a complex of several proteins which is activated during mitosis to initiate anaphase. –The APC is an E3 ubiquitin ligase that marks target proteins, e.g. cyclinB and cyclinA, for degradation by the 26S proteasome. The irreversibility of proteolysis is utilized by cells to give the cell cycle directionality.
6.3.3 Checkpoints in cell cycle Cell cycle checkpoints exist at specific points in the cell cycle in eukaryotic cells to prevent them from progressing to the next phase of the cell cycle in the event of DNA damage or another condition which would make cell division dangerous for the cell.
There are 3 main checkpoints which control the cell cycle in eukaryotes. –G1 checkpoint, Restriction point –G2 check point –M check point
6.3.4 proto-oncogenes and tumor suppressor genes proto-oncogene –A normal gene which, when altered by mutation, becomes an oncogene that can contribute to cancer. Proto-oncogenes may play an important role in many essential physiological processes such as cell proliferation, cell death and
tumor suppressor genes –Tumor suppressor genes are normal genes that slow down cell division, repair DNA mistakes, and tell cells when to die (a process known as apoptosis or programmed cell death). When tumor suppressor genes don't work properly, cells can grow out of control, which can lead to cancer.
