The eukaryotic cell cycle is an evolutionarily conserved process that results in the replication of cells. It is tightly regulated with checkpoints that monitor each phase of the cell cycle. Defects in the progression of the cell cycle often result in diseases such as cancer. Hence, the cell cycle is routinely used to assess cell health and diagnose diseases such as cancer.
Read this mini review to better understand the eukaryotic cell cycle and discover the role of key cell proliferation markers such as PCNA, MCM2, and Ki-67.Read the article
