A number have been identified in eukaryotic cells and participate in diverse processes ranging from transcriptional regulation, cell differentiation and cell cycle regulation. Up to date, more than 16 different cyclins have been identified in humans. Cdk activity is further regulated by a number of modulating pathways, and at least four different mechanisms regulate Cdk activity. When hepatocytes are stimulated to replicate, an early response is the transcription and translation of G1 cyclins. These G1 cyclins bind to appropriate kinases to form the activated cyclin–cdk complexes that subsequently phosphorylate a set of specific downstream targets.

For example, after loss of hepatic tissue, hepatocytes, which may have been quiescent for years, dramatically enter into the cell cycle and proliferate until the liver mass is completely restored. Then, just as acutely, they become quiescent again. A typical cell division cycle in somatic cells consists of four major phases (Fig. 17). The G1 phase is the interval between the completion of mitosis and the beginning of DNA synthesis; S phase (synthesis phase) is the period of replication of the nuclear DNA; the G2 phase is the interval between the end of DNA synthesis and the beginning of mitosis; and finally, the M phase is the period of mitosis in which nuclear division takes place.

In the exocytotic pathway the secreting proteins take a route from ER to cis-Golgi, to medial-Golgi, from medial- to transGolgi, and finally from the trans-Golgi network to the cell surface. This transport is mediated by a novel class of coated vesicles. Unlike the coated vesicles that are involved in endocytosis, these transporting vesicles do not contain clathrin. Liver cells can secrete more than one type of protein in a secretory vesicle. For example, two commonly secreted but unrelated proteins, albumin and transferrin, have been found to be packaged in the same secretory vesicles at the Golgi complex and released together to the extracellular medium.
