[Answer] Two important checkpoints that regulate the cell’s progression through the cell cycle are _____.

Answer: G1 and G2
Two important checkpoints that regulate the cell’s progression through the cell cycle are _____.
Cell cycle checkpoints are control mechanisms in the eukaryotic cell cycle which ensure its proper progression. Each checkpoint serves as a potential termination point along the cell cycle during which the conditions of the cell are assessed with progression through the various phases of the cell cycle occurring only when favorable conditions are met. There are many checkpoints in the cell cycl…
Cell cycle checkpoints are control mechanisms in the eukaryotic cell cycle which ensure its proper progression. Each checkpoint serves as a potential termination point along the cell cycle during which the conditions of the cell are assessed with progression through the various phases of the cell cycle occurring only when favorable conditions are met. There are many checkpoints in the cell cycle but the three major ones are: the G1 checkpoint also known as the Start or restriction checkpoint or Major Checkpoint; the G2/M checkpoint; and the metaphase-to-anaphase transition also known as the spindle checkpoint. Progression through these checkpoints is largely determined by the activation of cyclin-dependent kinases by regulatory protein subunits called cyclins different forms of which are produced at each stage of the cell cycle to control the specific events that occur therein.
All living organisms are the products of repeated rounds of cell growth and division. During this process known as the cell cycle a cell duplicates its contents and then divides in two. The purpose of the cell cycle is to accurately duplicate each organism’s DNA and then divide the cell and its contents evenly between the two resulting cells. In eukaryotes the cell cycle consists of four main stages:

The purpose of the cell cycle is to accurately duplicate each organism’s DNA and then divide the cell and its contents evenly between the two resulting cells. In eukaryotes the cell cycle consists of four main stages: G1 during which a cell is metabolically active and continuously grows; S phase during which DNA replication takes place; G2 during which cell growth continues and the cell synthesizes various proteins in preparation for division; and the M ( mitosis ) phase during which the duplicated chromosomes (known as the sister chromatids ) separate into two daughter nuclei and the cell divides into two daughter cells each with a full copy of D…
