• animals
  • While animals produce internal signals that can drive the cell cycle forward, external mitogens can cause it to progress without these signals. (wikipedia.org)
  • effects
  • This is not true for all growth factors, as some growth factors instead appear to cause mitogenic effects like growth indirectly by triggering other mitogens to be released, as evidenced by their lack of mitogenic activity in vitro, which VEGF has. (wikipedia.org)
  • Mitogens are important in cancer research due to their effects on the cell cycle. (wikipedia.org)
