The growth inhibitors most often cited as influencing priming and/or G1/S transition are TGF-P, Rb, p27, p16, GADD45, p53, p21 and activin. If cellular or DNA abnormalities are detected, these regulatory factors, and p53 in particular, exert sufficient inhibitory effects to prevent cell progression through the restriction point. If, on the other hand, no such abnormalities exist, growth promoters predominate and progression ensues.
The actual progression of cells through the cell cycle occurs as a result of activation of cycle dependent kinases (CDKs). CDKs are enzymes consisting of a labile, structural protein and a more stable kinase. A series of CDKs (CDK4/6, CDK2, and CDC2) are activated as the cell progresses through different stages of the cell cycle and each binds to a succession of cyclins (D, E, A, and B) to form the complex required for the next step in the cycle. Once again, if a defect in DNA synthesis or structure is recognized, the CDK of the CDK/cyclin complex does not become phosphorylated, the enzyme remains inactive, and CDK/cyclin-induced activation of additional transcription factors (TFs) and genes required for further progression (including the CDKs and cyclins themselves) does not occur.
Another important regulatory step in the cell cycle occurs during the second gap phase (G2), which follows DNA synthesis (S phase) and precedes mitosis (M phase). Here too, progression through G2 to M is determined by the influence of various growth promoters and inhibitors on a restriction point referred to as G2/M. The precise regulation of this site is less well understood but appears to involve MEC1-3, RAD 9, 17, 24, and perhaps metallopanstimulin-1 proteins. Gamma aminobutyric acid (GABA) exerts its major inhibitory effect on hepatic regeneration at this point in the cell cycle, although spindle formation and chromosomal segregation of the M phase also appear to be adversely influenced by GABA-induced changes in cell membrane potentials.
