Control of the cell cycle

Thomas Jacobs

Research output: Contribution to journalReview articlepeer-review


Cell division is arguably the most fundamental developmental process for single-celled and multicellular organisms alike. The pathway from one cell division to the next is known as the cell cycle. A conserved biochemical regulatory network controls progress along this pathway in plants, animals, and yeasts. This review is intended to serve as a primer on the current state of the eukaryotic cell cycle regulatory model, an introduction to the special roles of cell division and its control in plant development, and a review of recent progress in applying the universal mitotic control paradigm to higher plant systems.
