  • Write An Essay On P53 Tumor Protein

    It is a crucial component in multicellular organisms, as it regulates the cell cycle and helps prevent cancer. Mutations in the p53 tumor suppressor gene are the most commonly observed genetic alterations in human cancer. Since p53 mutations play such an important role in the development of cancer, it stands to reason that the detection of p53 mutations can be a very helpful tool in diagnosing…

  • Synthesis Essay: The Two Types Of Skin Cancer

    In today’s world cancer is everywhere. Cancer comes in many types and forms, that all seem to have many different origins. In this paper I will be focusing on a single type of cancer, known as skin cancer. This cancer isn’t as well discussed as many other forms of cancer from breast cancer to even prostate cancer in men, but it is a growing concern. As more and more people travel to warmer areas, use tanning beds, and even lack of knowledge of how this form of cancer is acquired we are taking a…

  • Neuroblastoma And Microrna-34a

    been discovered how it could eliminate cancer eternally. MicroRNA-34a has not only revolutionized scientists but the world in general because of its ability to destroy neuroblastoma but also because is a new natural genetic regulator of a tumor suppressor. Its level of dominance allows it to control different processes like apoptosis, metastasis, and differentiation in the cell cycle. MicroRNAs have taken control over diverse organisms, not only humans but also plants…

  • KRAS Case Study

    KRAS: So far three human Ras genes have been identified. Actually Ras homolog to the oncogene from Kristen Ras Sarcoma (KRAS). HRas homologous to the oncogene from Harvey Rat Sarcoma virus(HRAS) and NRas first isolated from the human neuroblastoma. These three different Ras genes are highly homologous but functionally different. However the degree of redundancy remains topic of investigation (Pylayeva-Gupta et al. 2011). Ras are central mediators of downstream of growth factor receptor…

  • The Importance Of A Zombie Outbreak

    A zombie is “a person or reanimated corpse that has been turned into a creature capable of movement but not of rational thought, which feeds on human flesh.” (Oxford) In the event of a zombie outbreak or apocalypse it would be quite difficult for a person to survive, even for a very short period of time. A person would need to take a large number of variables into consideration in order to survive. He or she would need to have a fair amount of equipment, food, shelter, weaponry, and various bits…

  • Persuasive Essay On Sickle Cell Donation

    Currently, the only cure available for sufferers of sickle cell disease is hematopoietic stem cell transplantation (HSCT). In this process, stem cells are taken from the bone marrow or blood of someone without the disease (the donor). The donor is often the sufferer’s sibling, and this is because the most successful and safest transplants are those that use stem cells that are matched for special proteins known as HLA proteins. These antigens are inherited from parents meaning that siblings are…

  • Research Paper On Crohn's Disease

    hydrocortisone, budesonide, or prednisone are given to patients with moderate to severe symptoms. Immune system suppressors which decreases action of the immune system, decreasing inflammation of the intestines in the process. Immune suppressors are very effective in patients with Crohn’s disease. However the can take months to work, 6-mercaptopurine and azathioprine are common immune suppressors. Antibiotics are used to treat bacterial growth. In some cases bowel rest is recommended to let the…

  • Case Study Breast Cancer

    More than 40,00 women in the United States are expected to die from breast cancer in 2015. Death rates for breast cancer are higher than any other cancer, besides lung cancer for women in the United States. In addition, American women are most commonly diagnosed with breast cancer over any other cancer with the exception of skin cancer. In fact, 1 in 8 women in the United States will be diagnosed with invasive breast cancer at some point in their lifetime. Breast cancer is the number one…

  • Relationship Between Mef4 And Nucleophosmin

    have demonstrated that the human HDM2 promoter is a target of the MEF transcriptional factor and the overexpression of MEF led to an increase in the Mdm2 protein (mice version of the human Hdm2), which in turn decreased the expression of the tumor-suppressor, p53, thereby augmenting transformation that may lead to leukemogenesis. Furthermore, the mutation commonly found in leukemia patients resulted in the delocalization of the NPM1 protein from the nucleolus to the…
