    cycle, from the G0, to the M phase (mitosis). The initial phase, G0, is where cells “rest”, maintaining normal, non-division related functions. Cancer cells usually cannot or do not enter G0, which is one the reasons they divide uncontrollably. Next comes the G1 phase, which is the first growth phase of the cell. In all cell (cancerous and normal cells) the cell preps for cell division. The cell does not change its normal functions, but enlarges slightly. In cancer cells, the production of…

    First, they are unspecialized( or infant cells) cells capable of renewing themselves through cell division like mitosis. Second, under certain conditions, they can be forced to be made into a tissue or organ specific cells with special functions. In some organs, stem cells regularly divide to repair and replace worn out or damaged tissues. For example…

    cell research, more specifically, the study of stem cells for medical applications. Stem cells are a special category of cells that are able to differentiate into specialized cell types, but also retain the ability to renew themselves through cell division. However, most of the controversy surrounding stem cell research is based on where stem cells are derived from. Stem cells normally come from two main sources, three to five day old embryos called…

    The use of human embryonic stem cells has been hailed as the next major step in the battle against serious degenerative disorders such as diabetes and heart disease, and for some, debilitating for lethal neurological diseases, such as Parkinson’s. (Braude, Minger & Warwick). However this is a hotly debated issue. Ethical Dilemma The main controversy surrounding stem cell research isn’t about “if” it should be done or not, but rather what source of stem cells are okay to use and what methods are…

    What if there was a way to move into an era of advanced science and medicine? Stem cell research may open up the path to advance into this era. While this may sound promising, there are those who oppose this research and they wish to put a stop to it. But, what exactly is stem cell research, and what is the issue with it? Stem cells are cells in organisms that can develop into any type of cell that an organism needs, and stem cell research is simply the study and analysis of these cells. The…

    Normal Healthy Cells Versus Cancer Cells All living organisms are composed of cells. These cells grow and divide in a controlled manner in order for the organism to function properly. Changes in normal cells can cause them to grow uncontrollably. This uncontrollable growth is the sign of cancer cells. Normal cells have certain characteristics that are important for the proper functioning of tissues, organs, and body systems. These cells have the ability to reproduce correctly, stop…

    Hypothalamic programming of systemic ageing involving IKK-b, NF-kB and GnRH (Zhang et al., 2013). Cellular senescence is when a cell’s replicative mechanism becomes arrested. This was phenomenon was first described in Hayflick’s experiment. Cellular senescence is usually due to protect the cell from becoming cancerous but it also plays a prominent role in aging (van Deursen, 2014). While senescence describes a halt in proliferation, cancer development is the uncontrolled proliferation of…
