Cyclin-dependent kinases are special molecules that facilitate the progression of a cell through the cell cycle. Many molecules such as p53 regulate the cell cycle. An unregulated cell cycle can lead to rapid growth of the cell that may eventually lead to cancer. In lab, you are working with a small molecule that stops the progression of the cell cycle. What is the most likely identity of this small molecule?
- Wee1 inhibitor
- Cyclin dependent kinase inhibitor
- p53 inhibitor
- Chk2 inhibitor
- Condensin inhibitor
