p34, A Protein Kinase Involved in Cell Cycle Regulation in Eukaryotic Cells
Investigation of the biochemical basis of cellular transformation is a major area of current research directed towards understanding the problem of tumorigenesis and human cancer. Much progress has been made in identifying primary oncogenic agents, both chemical and viral, in addition to the discovery of cellular oncogenes (Bishop, 1985). Biochemical activities have been associated with the products of some viral and cellular oncogenes, most notably those which belong to the protein kinase family (Erikson and Erikson, 1980).
