Animations and Interactive Tutorials
Produced by Dr. Donald F. Slish

The Big Picture    This animation shows the molecular mechanisms of the control of cell division by tyrosine kinases and the inhibition of this by p53, when there is slight DNA damage.  It also shows the induction of apoptosis when there is severe DNA damage.

Plant, Animal and Bacteria Cell Models

Living cells are divided into two types - procaryotic and eucaryotic (sometimes spelled prokaryotic and eukaryotic). This division is based on internal complexity. The following pages can provide graphic roadmaps to the organization of both of these cell types.
Eucaryotic: The cells of protozoa, higher plants and animals are highly structured. These cells tend to be larger than the cells of bacteria, and have developed specialized packaging and transport mechanisms that may be necessary to support their larger size. Use the Interactive animation of plant and animal cells to learn about their respective organelles.

Procaryotic: These cells are simple in structure, with no recognizable organelles. They have an outer cell wall that gives them shape. Just under the rigid cell wall is the more fluid cell membrane. The cytoplasm enclosed within the cell membrane does not exhibit much structure when viewed by electron microscopy.

Cell Biology and Cancer Animations (Rediscovering Biology)
How a Proto-oncogene Becomes an Oncogene: A depiction of some types of mutations that can occur to turn a proto-oncogene into an oncogene. p53's Role in the Cell: Shows various roles that p53 plays in the cell to protect the genome of the organism. Telomeres: Shows the concept of how the ends of chromosomes, the telomeres, shorten each time the cell divides. The Cell Cycle: Cyclins and Checkpoints: A depiction of the cell cycle and role that cyclins play in the process; this animation also shows the role of checkpoints in regulating the cell cycle. The Signal Transduction Pathway: A depiction of the signal transduction pathway that is involved with the growth process of the cell.

The Cell Cycle
During development from stem to fully differentiated, 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. Interphase, which appears to the eye to be a resting stage between cell divisions, is actually a period of diverse activities. Those interphase activities are indispensible in making the next mitosis possible.
