Diseases of mitotic cell cycle are caused by mutations in cell cycle regulators (Collins and Garrett 2005, Diaz-Moralli et al. 2013), such as retinoblastoma protein RB1 (Classon and Harlow 2002), as well as proteins involved in telomere maintenance, such as ATRX and DAXX (Sarek et al. 2015). These diseases mainly include different types of cancer, hereditary syndromes such as dyskeratosis congenita that may predispose affected patients to cancer, and neurodegenerative diseases (Webber et al. 2005).
