Checkpoints

Checkpoints are crucial events in a cells life that are highly regulated. The checkpoints prevent the cell from losing control of its genetic...

G0-phase (Gap0-phase)

Most differentiated cells, in multicellular organisms, leave the cell cycle in G1 phase. Because of this the progression stops and the cells...

G1-Phase (Gap1-phase)

When a parent cell is duplicated into two daughter cells, the cells enter G1-phase. It is named Gap1-phase because it generates a gap between the...

G2-phase (Gap2-phase)

After S-phase the cell enters a second gap-phase, during which the genome is scanned for damage a second time. Since the genome in this phase exists...

M-phase (Mitotc-phase)

Rapidly growing human cells go through M-phase in ~ 30 min

S-phase (Synthesis-phase)

In S-phase the genome is duplicated in a process called DNA replication. The DNA replication is preformed by a large protein complex collectively...
