Timing the cell cycle

Luca Cardone, Paolo Sassone-Corsi

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


Most cells contain two endogenous clocks, one devoted to the control of cell division and the other acting as circadian pacemaker. Although classically thought to be independent, recent findings challenge this view, as molecular components of the circadian clock directly regulate WEE1, a kinase that inhibits mitosis by inactivating Cdc2/cyclin B.
