Summary

The cell cycle is a complex series of protein interactions and enzymatic alterations that governs the orderly division of cells. Jacks and Weinberg summarize new evidence--some of which is presented by Di Cunto et al. in this issue--that the proteins that make up the cell cycle machinery can also have other functions, often in directing the differentiation of cells.
