Integrating stress-response and cell-cycle checkpoint pathways.
Pearce AK., Humphrey TC.
The DNA integrity checkpoint and stress kinase (SAPK/JNK and p38) pathways function to modulate cell-cycle, apoptotic and transcriptional responses to stress. Although initially considered to function independently, recent advances indicate a number of links between the stress-response and checkpoint pathways. Here, we consider the relationship between the stress-response and checkpoint pathways and how they interact to modulate cell-cycle control.
