The two articles describe the physical interactions between the retinoblastoma protein and D cyclins, a basic discovery in cell biology that has ramifications for the study of cancer.

Both types of proteins are important in regulating the cell cycle, the many-step process of cellular division and replication. The retinoblastoma protein--called...
