Simply so, what are internal regulators?
Internal regulators are proteins that regulate cell growth from inside of the cell. External regulators are proteins outside of the cell that also regulate cell growth.
Subsequently, question is, how do internal regulators control the cell cycle? Internal regulators allow the cell cycle to proceed only when certain processes have happened inside the cell. For example, several regulatory proteins make sure that a cell does not enter mitosis until all its chromosomes have been replicated.
Similarly one may ask, do internal regulators stop the cell cycle?
Regulator Molecules of the Cell Cycle. In addition to the internally controlled checkpoints, there are two groups of intracellular molecules that regulate the cell cycle. These regulatory molecules either promote progress of the cell to the next phase (positive regulation) or halt the cycle (negative regulation).
What is the difference between internal regulators and external regulators?
The key difference, then, between internal regulators and external regulators is that internal regulators react to stimuli from within the cell and external regulators react to stimuli from outside the cell. Cancer cells, for example, lack these inhibitions.
