Study Notes

Cell Cycle Checkpoints

  • The G2 checkpoint ensures that the DNA is correctly replicated before entering mitotic cell division.

G2 Checkpoint Function

  • The main function of the G2 checkpoint is to verify DNA integrity before the cell enters the mitotic phase.

G2 Checkpoint Response to DNA Damage

  • If the G2 checkpoint detects problems with the DNA, it prevents the cell from entering the mitotic phase.
  • This pause allows for DNA repair mechanisms to correct the damage before proceeding.

CDKs and Mitotic Cell Division

  • Cyclin-dependent kinases (CDKs) signal the beginning of mitotic cell division if the DNA has been correctly replicated.

G2 Checkpoint Role in the Cell Cycle

  • The main role of the G2 checkpoint is to ensure that the cell has a complete and accurate set of chromosomes before entering mitotic cell division.

Test your knowledge about the G2 checkpoint in the cell cycle, which ensures accurate replication of chromosomes and checks for DNA damage before entering mitosis. Learn about the conditions that must be met for cells to proceed to the mitotic phase and the mechanisms involved when DNA problems are detected.
