Cell Cycle Synchrony
1010103Cell Cycle SynchronyA growing cell culture is considered synchronous if cell divisions occur approximately simultaneously for all cells—in other words, if the specific rate of cell division is not constant but alternates between low values, corresponding to an absence of cell divisions, and high values, corresponding to the synchronous cell divisions. Thus, in principle at least, any batch culture that is not in steady exponential growth or any continuous culture that is not in steady-state growth is partially synchronized.The better the cell divisions are synchronized, the highe…
