I discuss recent advances in the study of somatic and embryonic cell cycles. In the frog embryonic cell cycle, cyclin is the only newly synthesized protein required to activate maturation-promoting factor and induce mitosis. Diminishing the rate of cyclin synthesis increases the length of interphase. Cyclin degradation is required for the progression from… CONTINUE READING
