Cell differentiation may depend in part upon a type of unbalanced growth in which several cell cycles occur with a reduced level of total protein synthesis. During this period the synthesis of the chromatin protein HMG-I/Y is reduced since its synthesis is correlated with that of total protein. The synthesis of histone H1 shows less reduction since its synthesis is entrained with that of DNA. This greater reduction of HMG-I/Y than of histone H1 is thought to delay or prevent replicon initiations within AT-enriched isochores. This shifts their time of replication from early to late S phase. This may restrict certain pathways of cell differentiation in multipotent progenitor cells and allow one particular type of differentiation.
