Regulation of the cell cycle involves processes crucial to the survival of a cell, including the detection and repair of genetic damage as well as the prevention of uncontrolled cell division associated with cancer. The cell cycle is a four-stage process in which the cell 1) increases in size (G1-stage), 2) copies its DNA (synthesis, S-stage), 3) prepares to divide (G2-stage), and 4) divides (mitosis, M-stage). Due to their anionic nature, nucleoside triphosphates (NTPs), the building blocks of both RNA and DNA, do not permeate cell membranes.
