Figure 17-34An overview of the cell-cycle control system

The core of the cell-cycle control system consists of a series of cyclin-Cdk complexes (yellow). The activity of each complex is also influenced by various inhibitory checkpoint mechanisms, which provide information about the extracellular environment, cell damage, and incomplete cell-cycle events (top). These mechanisms are not present in all cell types; many are missing in early embryonic cell cycles, for example.
