It is characterized by uncontrolled cell growth and a collapse of all multicellular co-operations (Zhang, et al., 2016; Zhang and Sun, 2015; Zhong, et al., 2016). Cancer promotes tumor development and metastasis (Ahmed, et al., 2013; Zhu, et al., 2016). Tumors are characterized by six essential alterations in cell physiology. These are self-sufficiency in growth signals, continued angiogenesis, insensitivity to growth inhibition signals,…

Genes, DNA, and protein are all involved with each other, therefore, in many immune diseases, if one fails your whole immune system could eventually fail. This treatment is relatively new; hence it is still a pretty risky experimentation since it involves getting genes into cancer cells. Gene Therapy is often involved in serious cancer cell treatments; its main purpose is to try…

    to become an oncogene, allowing it to remain on active status inducing cell growth (Gallegos-Arreola et al., 2013). A second hallmark is insensitivity to antigrowth signals; tumor suppressor genes regulate cell proliferation, once knocked out there is no regulation of proliferation, mutations of TP53, a tumor suppressor gene, occurs in only 3% of patients that have ALL (Gallegos-Arreola et al., 2013). A third hallmark is evading apoptosis; types of genes common to be knocked out are from the…

  • Sex Differences

    CDC73, or CASR gene. The MEN1 gene is the guideline for the production of the protein menin that acts as a tumor suppressor. It prevents cells from growing and dividing too rapidly. Mutations of the MEN1 gene result in an altered menin protein that is no longer able to control cell growth and division The CDC73 gene allows for the making of the parafibromin protein which is a tumor suppressor as well. A mutation here causes a decrease of the parafibromin protein. The CASR gene is involved in the…
