Mitosis and Meiosis 1. Cell cycle for most cells has two phases: Division and Interphase Interphase has three sub-phases: G 1 ---S---G 2 Division: Mitosis or Meiosis and Cytokinesis Purpose of G 1 prepare for S (may at some point go to G 0 ) Therefore, G 1 can be thought of as a transition phase Problem: How are decisions made? Must activate proteins called Cyclin-dependent Kinases or Cdk’s Cdk’s catalyze the phosphorylation of specific (target) proteins. How is Cdk activated? Another protein binds to it, Cyclin forming what is termed a Cyclin-Cdk complex that then acts as a protein kinase and triggers the transition from G

Unformatted text preview: 1 to S. (INSIDE THE CELL****) However, major point!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! One more substance is necessary to complete the transition!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Retinoblastoma protein, otherwise known as (RB). RB is an inhibitor that then must be inhibited!!!!!! Yes Cdk’s phosphorylate RB which then becomes inactive and only then can G 1 move to S Why so significant? Well, over stimulation (production of Cdk) leads to more inhibition of RB which then can lead to an over production of new cells....

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
