cycklins and checkpoints!


Each phase has checkpoints where the cell components are checked to see if they can precede. One checkpoint checks the dna for damage, another checks the proper duplication of the dna and yet another makes sure the spindles are attached and the chromosomes are ready to pulled apart for the cells seperation.
Because cyclins control the movement from one stage to the next, they are used to control whether a cell enters one phase or another.
