Molecule that affects cell proliferation. Generally stimulate proliferation by associating with receptor proteins on the affected cell Growth factor
Programmed cell death in which the cell coordinates its own DNA degradation and nuclear condensation Apoptosis
Normal gene regulating cell proliferation that can become an oncogene when mutated Proto-oncogene
Steroids, peptides, and proteins that act over short and long distances to provide extracellular signals to cells. Hormones
Proteins that underlie the inner surface of the nuclear membrane and become soluble during mitosis to allow dissolution of the nuclear membrane into vesicles Nuclear lamins
The relaying of a signal through the cytoplasm to the nucleus in order to mediate a cellular response to an extracellular signal. Signal transduction
A family of proteins that phosphorylate specific substrates in response to a cell-cycle dependent association with specific cyclins. Cyclin-dependent kinase
