Mechanisms of Action of Growth Factors
Understanding the mechanisms that control cell growth is a central problem in cell biology today. During the last few years, it has become increasingly clear that one or more defects in the physiological mechanisms that regulate cell proliferation can be the cause of tumor cell growth. The study of normal cell division is therefore important not only per se, but especially in relation to its pathological implications.
