Coordination of cell growth with cell division

Curr Opin Genet Dev. 1999 Feb;9(1):76-80. doi: 10.1016/s0959-437x(99)80011-2.


Proliferating cells must increase their mass coordinately with cell division. Recent evidence suggests that coupling of cell growth with cell division might be achieved by making synthesis of activators of cell division particularly sensitive to the capacity of the cell's protein synthesis machinery.
