Cell Cycle Antibodies
Introduction of Cell Cycle
The cell cycle is the series of events that take place in a cell leading to its division and duplication (replication) that produces two daughter cells. Cancers are diseases in which there is a defect in the regulation of the cell cycle. Cancer cells are rapidly dividing cells that no longer are controlled by the mechanisms such as contact inhibition, regulatory proteins, cell death by apoptosis. Cancer cells can form tumors due to this unchecked growth.
