Abstract

Integrins and growth factor receptors coordinately regulate proliferation in nontransformed cells. Coordinate signaling from these receptors controls the activation of the G1 phase cyclin-dependent kinases, largely by regulating levels of cyclin D1 and p27kip1. Induction of cyclin D1 is one of the best understood examples of an integrin/growth factor receptor-regulated G1 phase target. This review focuses on the integrin-dependent signal transduction events that regulate the expression of cyclin D1 during G1 phase.
