Part of the Proceedings in Life Sciences book series (LIFE SCIENCES)


The continuity of life is maintained by the growth and the division of the cells. The sequence of events occurring between two consecutive cell divisions is usually called the cell cycle. In a simple case of a unicellular organism nearly identical cells are reproduced at successive cell divisions. Hence, the basic question is how growth and vision processes are coordinated in the cell cycle to secure the constancy of important cell characteristics (Zeuthen 1964, Mitchison 1971, Prescott 1976, Helmstetter et al. 1979).
