About this book
Covers all major aspects of the cell cycle including cyclins, CDK inhibitors and phosphorylation, cell cycle control and activation, developments of trichomes, fruits, and the endosperm. Final chapters deal with the hormonal control of cell division, and environmental stress and cell cycle exit.
