Cell cycle or the division of cell leading to its duplication producing 2 daughter cells. During the development from stem cell to fully differentiated cells, cells in the body alternately divide (mitosis) and "appear" to be resting (interphase). This sequence of activities exhibited by cells is called the cell cycle. The regulation of cell cycle involves some processes crucial for the survival of the cell. These processes include the detection and repairing of the genetic damage as well as also to stop the uncontrolled cell division. The cell cycle events are highly ordered and cannot be reversed back. Cancer cells reproduce relatively quickly in culture. In the Cancer Cell CAM compare the length of time these cells spend in interphase to that for mitosis to occur.
