Surveillance mechanisms stop progression through the cell cycle at specific checkpoints (at the G1 S, G2 M and metaphase anaphase transitions) if certain crucial requirements have not been met. These checkpoint controls are essential for maintaining genomic integrity and balanced growth and division.

- G2 checkpoint;
- spindle checkpoint;
