      I loved cancer biology more than I ever did after reading this book, or let's say chapters of this text book. I only read the chapters I was required to study but I will definitely read the rest. It's one of the text books /5.   Breast Cancer-1 and 2 Genes. Breast cancer-1 and 2 genes are linked to familial breast cancer. Breast Cancer-1 gene consists of Kb DNA and 21 exons. It has a zinc-finger domain like that in the DNA binding proteins. Breast cancer-1 is a tumor suppressor gene Cited by: 5.

      We have already talked about ways genes, gene mutations, and gene variations can affect cancer risk and even lead to cancer. In this section, we are going to talk about how finding certain genes or gene mutations can be helpful in diagnosing cancer, monitoring the effects of treatment, learning about prognosis (outlook), and in treating cancer. •Tumor-suppressor gene p53 in an important modulator of oncogene-induced apoptosis Oncogene myc •myc codes for a protein that binds to the DNA of other genes and is therefore a transcription factor •When a gene like myc is altered to cause cancer, the cancerous version of the gene .

    Genes contain information to make proteins, and proteins control many important functions like cell growth. Genetic mutations can change how proteins function. Some types of genetic mutations . Prostate Cancer: Biology, Genetics, and the New Therapeutics, Second Edition, reviews new, valuable approaches to the treatment of prostate cancer in men. The latest edition contains new material on molecular imaging, new treatments for prostate cancer, molecular targets, cell signaling pathways, bioinformatics, and pathogenomics. The book .

Cancer is a genetic disease—that is, cancer is caused by certain changes to genes that control the way our cells function, especially how they grow and divide. Genes carry the instructions to make proteins, which do much of the work in our cells. Certain gene changes can cause cells to evade normal growth controls and become cancer.

The Biology of Cancer is a textbook for students studying the molecular and cellular bases of cancer at the undergraduate, graduate, and medical school levels. The principles of cancer biology are /5(). Cancer-critical genes are grouped into two broad classes, according to whether the cancer risk arises from too much activity of the gene product, or too little.

Genes of the first class, for which a gain-of-function mutation drives a cell toward cancer Cited by: 2. It is now clear that cancer is a genetic disease. Cancer has many causes, but ultimately all these causes exert their effects on a special class of genes called cancer genes or proto-oncogenes.

Advances in research and the treatment of cancer mean that more patients and their carers are asking healthcare professionals about the latest treatments and how they may be of benefit. It is essential that staff working with cancer patients understand fully how these new treatments work in order to disseminate timely and appropriate information to patients.

Here we review how cells can change during a person’s life to become cancer, how certain types of changes can build on inherited gene changes to speed up the development of cancer, and how this information can help us better prevent and treat cancer.
