Abstract

Cell proliferation is governed by a fine and dynamic equilibrium between the “in cycle” and the “out of cycle” compartments. Positive (oncogenes) and negative (antioncogenes) effector elements are deputed to regulate this equilibrium: the balance between the positive and negative circuits thus represents a continuous integration of all acting elements.
