An alternative view is that breast cancer is a disease of abnormal or uncontrolled proliferation resulting from deregulated growth factor signaling or aberrations in cell cycle control machinery. Thus, a great deal of interest has focused on the potential role of cell cycle elements in breast cancer. The cell cycle (Fig. 3–4) comprises four phases: G1(gap 1), S (DNA Mitogenic stimulus Mitogenic stimulus cycD cdk4 inactive cycE cycD p27 p27 cdk2 inactive cdk4 p27 active P P pRb cycE cdk2 inactive E2F P P P P pRb E2F active S-phase gene activation active Figure 3–4 Schematic diagram of activation of the cell cycle.
