Essentially existing therapies with improved products. Identifying new drug targets and therapeutic strategies. These will come from research into identification of genetic factors in disease and the development of methods for relating protein sequence (deduced from the DNA sequence) to the function of the protein and its role in pathology. e. gene therapy. There have been promising preliminary results with diseases such as cystic fibrosis, but there is still a long way to go before this becomes a general therapeutic method.

These activate genes required for progression through S-phase, such as DNA polymerases and nucleotide kinases. Progression through G1 requires the phosphorylation of Rb-type proteins, allowing the release of transcription factors and subsequent S-phase entry. Phosphorylation of Rb-type proteins is controlled primarily by the cyclin-D-dependent kinases, CDK4 and CDK6. Kinase activity is regulated by fluctuating levels of D cyclins and CKIs from the p16INK4 and kip families, particularly p16 itself.

However, cyclin-D synthesis and subsequent activation of CDK4/6 has been linked to growth factor availability. It is suggested that cyclin D acts as a cellular sensor with cyclin synthesis allowing cells to cycle in the presence of appropriate mitogens. CELL CYCLE AND ITS REGULATION 23 Pathways Superimposed over cyclin/CDK systems are pathways to detect problems such as DNA damage and cell growth inhibition. The most important is the p53 pathway, which plays a key role in G1 arrest, apoptosis, and genomic stability.
