In this lesson our instructor talks bout the cell cycle. Firs, she talks about functions of cell division, chromosome structure, mitosis and meiosis. Then she goes on to discuss the cell cycle, cytokinesis, control of the cell cycle, cyclins and cyclin dependent kinases. Lastly, she talks about cancer and the cell cycle. Four complete example videos round up this lesson.
genetic material (DNA) in eukaryotic cells is organized into
chromosomes Chromosomes that have been replicated contain two
identical sister chromatids connected by a centromere.
two major phases of the cell cycle are the mitotic phase (M phase)
and interphase. Interphase is divided into the G1,
S and G2
phases. M phase consists of mitosis and cytokinesis.
signaling molecules regulate the cell cycle. These molecules
constitute the cell cycle control system. Checkpoints occur at G1,
and the M phase.
and cyclin dependent kinases (CDKs) are two types of proteins that
regulate the cell cycle. Other internal and external signals also
regulate the cell cycle.
cells may not wait for the go-ahead signal at checkpoints in the
cell cycle. They also exhibit a loss of density dependent inhibition
and anchorage dependence.
The Cell Cycle
Lecture Slides are screen-captured images of important points in the lecture. Students can download and print out these lecture slide images to do practice problems as well as take notes while watching the lecture.
