Proliferation Monitoring by Flow Cytometry

Lesson 1: Basics of the Cell Cycle

Lesson 1 of the Proliferation course reviews the basic concepts of cell cycle biology, setting the stage for the more specific methods and applications discussed in Lessons 2 and 3. Topics discussed include:

  • Phases of the cell cycle and molecular events associated with each
  • Cell cycle checkpoints and regulators (cyclins and cyclin dependent kinases)
  • The relationship between the cell cycle phase distribution of a sample and DNA content histogram
  • The use of DNA content histograms in combination with metabolic labeling or cellular synchronization to determine kinetics of progression through the different cell cycle phases

 

Lesson 2A: Principles and Methods is currently available here.

Lesson 2B: DNA Cell Cycle Data Analysis Strategies is currently available here.

Lesson 2C: Practical Considerations & Troubleshooting is currently available here.

Learning Objectives

  • To understand what cellular processes need to occur in order for a cell to enter the cell cycle and complete division. 
  • To know and understand the difference between cell cycle progression and cell division 
  • To understand how flow cytometry is used to measure cell cycle parameters and division
