Method "Live-cell fluorescent biosensors and time-lapse microscopy allows the collection of temporal information about real time cell cycle progression and arrest." Value estimated visually from figure 2A
Comments "Using automated timelapse imaging in a temperature-, CO2- and humidity-controlled epifluorescence microscope, [investigators] were able to track individual cells and use the biosensor system to monitor all four cell cycle transitions and durations over a period of 20 or more hours (Fig. 2A, top, Movie S3). [Investigators] measured the durations of the four phases of the cell cycle in unsynchronized HeLa, NIH3T3 and NCI-H292 cells (Fig. 2A, Table 1, bottom)."
