Those mutation 'hotspots' occur among families of proteins produced by genes in the body's cells. By sifting through data from nearly 6,000 cancer patients, researchers at the University of Maryland say they found thousands of mutations that occur among those proteins."

The unlucky findings by Johns Hopkins scientists were discovered using a statistical model that measures the proportion of cancer incidence across many tissue types. They found that more often than not, cancer in adults is caused by random mutations that occur when stem cells divide."

In 2015, Vogelstein and one of his co-authors, mathematician Cristian Tomasetti of Johns Hopkins University in Baltimore, created a stir with an analysis that looked at possible explanations for why some cancers occur more often than others. They concluded that differences in the number of stem-cell divisions in an organ correlated with the frequency of cancers in that area." ____________________ Seeker inspires us to see the world through the lens of science and evokes a sense of curiosity, optimism and adventure.

Tumor Supressor Gene Regulation in Cancer Cells
There are many mutations that can contribute to cancer. Some mutations create more active genes, and others break genes, such as the Tumor Suppressor Gene displayed here. The disruption of the Tumor Supressor Gene expression causes the cancerous cell to divide when it should not. This nucleotide mutation has been observed in a specific type of triple negative breast cancer, presenting this area for further research.

Cancer cell biology: mutated KRAS & reciprocal signalling
Across a wide variety of cancer types, a protein called KRAS can get hyperactivated and transmit an overload of unwanted growth signals to the cells, causing them to divide and form a tumour. A tumour doesn't just contain cancer cells, though. It also has some non-cancer cells in there, such as immune cells and fibroblasts (cells that make the dense support structure that keeps cells stuck together). New research by Chris Tape, Claus Jørgensen and colleagues at The Institute of Cancer Research in London, MIT, the Cancer Research UK Manchester Institute and The University of Manchester, has shed some new light on how mutated KRAS causes cancer cells to grow by promoting three distinct ways of cellular signalling: 1) Through a direct signalling pathway within the cancer cell, with KRAS signalling through the classic RAS-RAF-MEK-ERK signal transduction cascade, this is called cell-autonomous signalling. 2) By inducing the cancer cell to release a protein called SHH, which is able to start specific signalling pathways inside the fibroblast cells. This is called non-cell-autonomous signalling. 3) When these non-cell-autonomous signalling pathways in the fibroblast cells are induced, the fibroblasts are able to release growth factors that go back to the cancer cell, where they initiate more growth signalling pathways through a PI3K-AKT signal transduction cascade. Uncovering these new ways in which mutated KRAS is able to promote cancer cell growth by hijacking fibroblast cell signalling could lead to new possibilities for therapeutic intervention.

Thanks to original content developers. Link- http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Main_Page Mutation in growth regulatory gene leads to the development of cancer. Cancer cells are cells that grow and divide at an unregulated, quickened pace. Although cancer cells can be quite common in a person they are only malignant when the other cells (particularly natural killer cells) fail to recognize and/or destroy them.[1] In the past a common belief was that cancer cells failed to be recognized and destroyed because of a weakness in the immune system. However, more recent research has shown that the failure to recognize cancer cells is caused by the lack of particular co-stimulated molecules that aid in the way antigens react with lymphocytes. By researching stem cells scientists have suggested that too much SP2 protein may turn stem cells into cancer cells.[3] Other issues thought to play a role in the spread of cancer include viruses, immune system issues, genetics, environment and age.[4] However, a lack of particular co-stimulated molecules that aid in the way antigens react with lymphocytes can impair the natural killer cells ability and ultimately cause cancer.[2] All cancers begin in cells, the body's basic unit of life. To understand cancer, it's helpful to know what happens when normal cells become cancer cells. The body is made up of many types of cells. These cells grow and are controlled to produce more cells as they are needed to keep the body healthy. When cells become old or damaged, they die and are replaced with new cells. Sometimes this process of controlled production of cells goes wrong. The genetic material (DNA) of a cell start producing mutations that affect normal cell growth and division by being damaged. When this happens, these cells do not die but form a mass of tissue called a tumor. Said mutations accumulate, being another reason that cancer is found more often in older people.

Always seek the advice of a qualified healthcare provider with any questions you may have regarding a medical condition. Perfect for patient education. The number of cells in a tissue is determined by the balance between cell division and cell death. Uncontrollable cell division leads to formation of abnormal growths called tumors. Tumors can be benign or malignant. Benign tumors are slow-growing and constrained by surrounding connective tissue so they do not spread to other organs. They can still be harmful or even kill by pressing on nearby nerves, brain tissue or blood vessels. Examples of benign tumor include pituitary tumors which may press on optic nerves and cause loss of vision. Cancers are malignant tumors - tumors that can spread beyond of the limit of original organ where it comes from and to other organs of the body. How cancer starts Cancer starts from damage in the DNA of a cell. This DNA damage is called mutation. Mutations happen when the cell duplicates its DNA prior to cell division and makes mistakes. These damages are usually detected and repaired before the cell can divide but sometimes, some of them may be ignored and transferred to daughter cells. If the mutation is located in one of many genes that control the cell cycle, it may affect the regulation of cell cycle in the cell carrying it, and make the cell divide faster than it supposed to. Usually, one mutation is not enough to cause cancer, but as it makes the cell cycle control less reliable, many more DNA damages/mutations would go unnoticed. Cancer is usually the result of accumulation of many mutations of genes involved in cell cycle control and DNA repair. This commonly happens over a long period of time, over many rounds of cell divisions, and this explains why cancers are more common in older people. Some people are said to be predisposed to cancer. This is because they are born with a mutation that makes them more likely to develop a certain type of cancer. This mutation alone is not enough to cause cancer but it starts the process of making cells cancerous. The person carrying it is one step further down the road towards developing a cancer than others who do not have the mutation. How cancer spreads Cancer cells do not stick together like normal cells, they move and invade nearby tissues, organs, this is local spread. They may also spread to further away organs by means of blood and lymph circulation, this is systemic spread. Metastasis is the spreading of cancers to non-adjacent organs. Cancer cells from the original tumor, or primary cancer, can break out and maybe taken up by a blood or a lymph vessel for a ride throughout the body. They can then squeeze out from the vessels into other tissues and start a new tumor growth in the new location which will become secondary cancer. Where do cancers usually spread and why? While travelling in the bloodstream, cancer cell usually stops at the first place where the vessel getting so narrow that it gets stuck. As blood flow from most organs goes to the capillaries of the lungs, this is where cancers spread the most. Lungs are indeed the most common site of secondary cancers. Likewise, while travelling in the lymphatic system, cancer cells commonly get stuck in nearest lymph nodes, where the vessels get narrower. This is the reason why surgeons usually remove nearby lymph nodes when removing tumors.

6. Tumour Suppressor Genes (Retinoblastoma and the two hit hypothesis, p53)
Cancers occur as a result of damage (in the form of mutations) to a cells DNA that results in the formation of malfunctioning proteins. The mutated proteins give the cancerous cells a number of specific traits, outlined in the 'hallmarks of cancer' (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ea-CALtn7hA). The genes that are mutated in cancers can be divided into two groups - tumour suppressor genes and proto-oncogenes. Tumour suppressor genes are genes that produce proteins that are involved in stopping mutated cells from dividing, and also act as the brakes on the cell cycle at its various checkpoints. The retinoblastoma gene is a gene that is involved in stopping cells from crossing the G1 checkpoint in the cell cycle, preventing cells from entering S phase and replicating their DNA in preparation for cell division. For the retinoblastoma gene to be rendered inactive, it needs a mutation in both of its copies (alleles). This is explained by the 'two hit hypothesis'. P53 is another example of a significant tumour suppressor gene. It is active during the cell cycle, acting by halting damaged cells at the checkpoints and then ordering the cell to destroy itself by the process of apoptosis.
Cancer: rogue cells and DNA mutations
One in three people in the Western world will develop cancer and one in five will die from the disease, but what is cancer and what causes it? Yourgenome.org presents a film of Professor Mike Stratton, Director of the Sanger Institute describing how cancer can develop in the human body. Professor Stratton's research in the Cancer Genome Project uses genome-wide searches for somatic mutations in human cancer in order to identify new cancer genes and to understand the genetic changes that take place during human cancer development. He led the group that discovered the high-risk breast cancer susceptibility gene, BRCA2, and his research has led to the discovery of mutations in genes that lead to melanoma and lung cancer.

Activated oncogenes can cause those cells that ought to die to survive and proliferate instead.[3] Most oncogenes require an additional step, such as mutations in another gene, or environmental factors, such as viral infection, to cause cancer. Since the 1970s, dozens of oncogenes have been identified in human cancer. Many cancer drugs target the proteins encoded by oncogenes.

In cases of DNA damage, there is triggering of expression of p53 gene whcich increases the production of p53 proteins. These preoteins Prevent Cell from entering S phase of cell cycle and Allows time for the DNA repair to take place. also p53 induces DNA repair genes. If the DNA is repaired,the p53 degrades and the cell cycle continues. if the DNA is not repaired, the p53 induces permanent arrest in the cell or activates pro apoptotic proteins bax and bad thereby promoting apoptosis. By these mechanisms, it is understood that the p53 conserves the stability of the cell and thus aptly called as ' THE GAURDIAN OF THE GENOME" How p53 causes cell cycl arrest? P53 is the transcriptional regulator of one of the genes named WAF 1 Resulting in increased WAF proteins named as p 21 P21 blocks CDK4/CyclinD complex ….. Cell cycle is halted in G1 stage resulting in cell cycle arrest. Regulation of p53 protein: by formation of p53 and mdme protein complex which is degraded by ubiquitin mediated pathway. What happens when p53 is inactivated? There will be no cell cycle arrest in cases of damaged DNA and the cell cycle progresses with damaged DNa which results in genomic instability and the neoplastic transformation. How p53 is inactivated?? Mutations Heterozygous and homozygous loss of alleles What are the cancers associated with p53 mutations?? Most human cancers! MC breast, colorectal, liver, lung, and ovarian cancers. -~-~~-~~~-~~-~- Please watch: "WARBURG EFFECT: Hallmark of CANCER.

Mutation in tumor suppressor gene leads to cancer
For more information, log on to- http://shomusbiology.weebly.com/ Download the study materials here- http://shomusbiology.weebly.com/bio-materials.html Source of the article published in description is Wikipedia. Thanks to original content developers. Link- http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Main_Page Mutation in tumor suppressor gene leads to the development of cancer. A tumor suppressor gene, or anti-oncogene, is a gene that protects a cell from one step on the path to cancer. When this gene is mutated to cause a loss or reduction in its function, the cell can progress to cancer, usually in combination with other genetic changes. The loss of these genes may be even more important than oncogene activation for the formation of many kinds of human cancer cells. Tumor-suppressor genes, or more precisely, the proteins for which they code, either have a dampening or repressive effect on the regulation of the cell cycle or promote apoptosis, and sometimes do both. The functions of tumor-suppressor proteins fall into several categories including the following:[5] Repression of genes that are essential for the continuing of the cell cycle. If these genes are not expressed, the cell cycle does not continue, effectively inhibiting cell division. Coupling the cell cycle to DNA damage. As long as there is damaged DNA in the cell, it should not divide. If the damage can be repaired, the cell cycle can continue. If the damage cannot be repaired, the cell should initiate apoptosis (programmed cell death) to remove the threat it poses for the greater good of the organism. Some proteins involved in cell adhesion prevent tumor cells from dispersing, block loss of contact inhibition, and inhibit metastasis. These proteins are known as metastasis suppressors.[6][7] DNA repair proteins are usually classified as tumor suppressors as well, as mutations in their genes increase the risk of cancer, for example mutations in HNPCC, MEN1 and BRCA. Furthermore, increased mutation rate from decreased DNA repair leads to increased inactivation of other tumor suppressors and activation of oncogenes.

Ovarian cancer: Origins of ovarian cancer tracked to fallopian tube cell mutations - TomoNews
BALTIMORE — A preliminary study of ovarian cancer suggests that its roots may lie in the fallopian tubes — a finding that could provide new insight in treating the deadly disease. Science Daily reports that ovarian cancer is the fifth largest cause of cancer deaths in women, as it is often detected late, or is already widespread at the time of diagnosis. Scientists from the Johns Hopkins Kimmel Cancer Center and the Dana Farber Cancer Institute in Boston examined cell samples from women with ovarian tumors and those with cancer risk factors. The analysis revealed that all the women had mutations affecting the cancer-guarding p53 gene, and had lost chromosomes containing one or both BRCA1 and BRCA2 tumor-suppressing genes. They tracked the source of the mutations to the fallopian tubes, where the cancer developed and eventually migrated to the ovaries over a 6.5-year period. Once in the ovaries, the cancer progressed more rapidly, metastasizing within two years. The team's findings will need to be further validated by additional studies, but the results provide a glimmer of hope. With such a large window from fallopian tube to ovarian cancer, scientists believe new methods should be developed to detect and treat the cancer while it's still localized in the tubes. ----------------------------------------­--------------------- TomoNews is your best source for real news.

Proto-oncogenes are genes that produce proteins that are involved in encouraging cells to move through the cell cycle and divide. If they become mutated in such a way that they are permanently active they will encourage the growth of tumours. Mutated counterparts of proto-oncogenes are called oncogenes. This video explains the role of oncogenes in the development of cancer, using the example of the RAS oncogene.

2.2 Mutated DNA causes cellular transformation
Transfection of DNA provides a strategy for detecting non-viral oncogenes Another viable theory. Carcinogens function as mutagens physical (e.g., X-rays) chemical (e.g., tobacco tars) These agents induce cancer through their ability to mutate critical growth-controlling genes in the genomes of susceptible cells The technique of calcium phosphate transfection. In 1972, a new and highly effective gene transfer procedure was developed calcium phosphate transfection. Mouse embryo fibroblasts (NIH 3T3 cell line), turned out to be especially adept at taking up and integrating foreign DNA into their own genomes. This transformation could be scored by the appearance of foci of transformants cells several weeks after their exposure to tumor cell DNA Oncogenes are of human cellular origin Donor DNA from uninfected, mutated cells Researchers chose donor tumor cells derived from mouse fibroblasts. These particular cancer cells originated in mouse adult fibroblasts that had been treated repeatedly with a potent carcinogen and mutagen Importantly, these cells bore no traces of either tumor virus infection or activated endogenous retroviral genomes. Hence, any transforming oncogenes detected in the genome of these cells, are of cellular origin, that is, mutant versions of normal cellular genes. Transfected DNA from chemically treated cells cause foci The cells plucked from the resulting foci were later found to be both anchorage-independent tumorigenic. Importantly DNA extracted from normal, untreated mouse cell lines was unable to induce foci in the NIH 3T3 cell monolayers. Does DNA from human tumours, transform mouse cells? DNAs extracted from human bladder, Lung, colon carcinomas and human promyelocytic leukemia were all found capable of transforming recipient NIH 3T3 cells

1.4 Colon cancer pathogenesis - gene mutations
Increasing numbers of mutant genes accumulate in cells as they evolve from a more benign to a more malignant growth state. We know so much about the genetic basis of tumor progression in the colon because the colonic epithelium is relatively accessible through colonoscopy They examined the genomes of sizable groups of small colonic adenomas, mid-sized adenomas, large adenomas, and carcinomas It was plausible that as colonic tissues advanced progressively from normalcy to a high-grade malignancy The epithelial cells in these various tissues would accumulate increasing numbers of mutations in various genes. (NOTE: the identities of the tumor suppressor genes that participate in colon cancer pathogenesis were not known when they began their work, so they searched instead for chromosomal regions that suffered loss of heterozygosity (LOH) during tumor progression) Landmark research: Colon Cancer Early-stage adenomas often showed loss of heterozygosity in the long arm of Chromosome 5 Almost half of slightly larger adenomas showed in addition, a mutant K- ras oncogene. Even larger adenomas tended to showed high rates of LOH on the long arm of Chromosome 18 LOH on the short arm of Chromosome 17 These observations support the idea that epithehial cells acquire increasingly neoplastic phenotypes during the course of tumor progression Increasingly neoplastic phenotypes during the course of tumor progression Tumor progression Involves the activation of one proto-oncogene into an oncogene and the inactivation of at least three tumor suppressor genes This was the first suggestion of a phenomenon that is now recognized to be quite common in human tumor cell genomes. The most obvious way to rationalize the steps in colon cancer development involves an ordered succession of genetic changes that strike the genomes of colonic epithelial cells as they evolve progressively toward malignancy Colon cancer pathogenesis. Most colon cancers will begin with a Chromosome 5 alteration, but then will take alternative genetic paths on the road toward full-fledged malignancy The loss of heterozygosity on Chromosome 5q is almost always the first in the progression the precise order of the subsequent changes may vary from tumor to tumor. Some of these mutations appear to confer growth advantages at an early stage of tumor development Other mutations promote the later stages, including invasion and metastasis, which are required for the malignant phenotype

Will Gene Therapy Cure Cancer?
Gene therapy, an alteration of genes within the body to fight or prevent disease, has sparked a revolution in cancer treatment. Cancer is the 2nd leading cause of death in the United States, and the two main ways we treat it - radiation and chemotherapy - have severe side effects. In this episode of Fw:Thinking, Jonathan Strickland walks us through the process of human gene therapy, reveals it's exciting potential, and questions the ethics of genetic modification and altering DNA. We have a question for you! If you were a gene hacker, what crazy genetic mutation would you give yourself? Leave us a comment with your answer! -------------------------------------------------------- Subscribe to Fw:Thinking: http://www.youtube.com/subscription_center?add_user=fwthinking For the audio podcast, blog and more, visit the Fw:Thinking website: http://www.fwthinking.com Fw:Thinking on Twitter: http://www.twitter.com/fwthinking Jonathan Stickland on Twitter: http://www.twitter.com/jonstrickland Fw:Thinking on Facebook: http://www.facebook.com/FWThinking01 Fw:Thinking on Google+: https://plus.google.com/u/0/108500616405453822675/ [TRANSCRIPT]: Feeling under the weather? Just tweak a chromosome and you'll be all better. Gene therapy. Now I'm not talking about support groups for people who can't fit into the same pants they wore in high school. I'm talking about the alteration of genes within the body to treat disease. Cancer is the second leading cause of death in the United States, and the two main ways we treat it are with radiation and chemotherapy. Both of which have severe side effects. Chemotherapy in particular can be devastating to healthy cells. So gene therapy has the promise of perhaps complimenting or maybe even replacing these other therapies. Currently there are a few different ways to use gene therapy to battle cancer. One way is just to remove the mutated genetic material and replace it with healthy material. Kind of like replacing a flat tire. Another way is to insert special genes into white blood cells. Now this gives those white blood cells the chance to detect and battle tumors. It's like giving a cancer cop a strong pot of coffee and a detailed sketch of what the bad cells look like. But the third, and this is my own personal favorite, is that cells happen to have a little self-destruct button inside them. Now this button gets pressed if there's too much mutation within that cell. But in cancer cells the button is deactivated. So with gene therapy you go in and reactivate that button. Press the button, no more cancer cell. But this raises a question. How do we actually get that genetic material into cells in the first place? Well, do you like spy movies? Because that's what we're talking about here - double agents! In this case, the double agent is a virus. Now normally a virus might be out there to kill you. But what scientists are doing is they're scooping the DNA out of viruses and putting a treatment gene into it, and then putting that into a patient's body. So, like a double agent, the virus works for our team now. In our spy movie, the viruses smuggle in the good genes, so when the cell replicates the good gene is copied instead of the mutated one. Take for example a cancer cell. Once inside the spy virus can deliver the gene that will halt its rampant replication. One such gene is called oligonucleotide. A single stranded piece of DNA that inserts itself directly in the slots of the mutated cell's double helix DNA, essentially jamming up the cell's replicating gears. The mutated segment of DNA can not be transcribed or copied once you've jammed up those gears. And in fact, scientists may one day be able to reverse this process, turning cancer cells back into healthy cells through cellular espionage. So far gene therapy has been used to treat very simple diseases and conditions where a gene is essentially flipped on or off and that effects everything else. Think of it like one of those strands of lights where one light is wrong and therefore the whole thing won't work. You know, kind of like these that I had back in college. Really you just have to find the one bulb that's wrong and fix it and it all comes on again! But some conditions are a little more complicated, and they actually involve lots of different combinations of genes that maybe switched on or off and so we have to determine what that combination is in order to use gene therapy to solve it. We're talking about over 20,000 proteins. This is a big problem. But as genetic information becomes easier for us to obtain, this raises some new questions. For example, should parents be able to determine what their child's eye color should be? Or height? Or sexual orientation? And if we're able to use gene therapy to cure or combat diseases and conditions, does that drastically alter our lifespan and in turn does that drastically alter world population?

Breast Cancer    BRCA1 & BRCA2 Gene Mutations HD
www.elarasystems.com October is breast cancer awareness month, and while most people are aware of breast cancer, they may be unaware of certain factors which increase the risk of developing the disease. Individuals with a strong family history of breast cancer may choose to receive a gene test to assess these risks. A gene test looks for specific mutations in your BRCA1 or BRCA2 gene. A mutation in these genes can be inherited from either your mother or your father. BRCA1 and BRCA2 help control normal cell growth. Mutations in these genes may increase the risk of developing breast cancer. According to the National Cancer Institute: About 12% of women in the general population will develop breast cancer. However, about 45% of women who have inherited a BRCA2 mutation will develop breast cancer, and about 55-65% of women with a BRCA1 mutations will develop breast cancer. Consider putting together an early detection plan and be proactive about your health.

KRAS mutation
This cancer pathway lecture explains about the KRAS mutation leading to the development of cancer. Mutations of the k-Ras gene arise in over ninety% of pancreatic carcinomas. No different human tumor comes shut in mutational frequency. The ras pathway is most important within the transmission of growth-selling alerts from the telephone floor receptors, ultimately toward the nucleus where these alerts have an effect on the creation and regulation of other key proteins. It's exciting that despite the fact that most mutations in genes are expected to reason their inactivation, with the Ras genes the reverse happens - they emerge as more energetic in signalling. This is considering of the engineering design of the protein. The ras sign is became off by using a molecular switch, which depends upon an enzyme endeavor. In picturesque terms, the nucleotide GTP (guanidine triphosphate) engages the swap to maintain it within the "on" state. A component to the Ras protein has an enzyme endeavor (a GTPase) which cleaves the GTP. This turns the change "off" after the temporary "on" period. Definitely, the mutations of Ras do indeed inactivate a operate, as most mutations are anticipated to do. The GTPase is inactivated via the mutations. However this now signifies that GTP continues to interact the change, and the Ras signalling function is unable to be grew to become "off". A quantity of drug firms at the moment are investigating ways to abate the signalling perform of Ras, which might provide a rational cure for pancreatic cancer. from -http://pathology.jhu.edu/pancreas/geneticsweb/K-ras.htm For more information, log on to- http://www.shomusbiology.com/ Get Shomu's Biology DVD set here- http://www.shomusbiology.com/dvd-store/ Download the study materials here- http://shomusbiology.com/bio-materials.html Remember Shomu’s Biology is created to spread the knowledge of life science and biology by sharing all this free biology lectures video and animation presented by Suman Bhattacharjee in YouTube.

BRCA mutation
This breast cancer lecture explains about the brca gene (brca1 and brca2 mechanism) mutation which leads to the development of breast cancer. A BRCA mutation is a mutation in both of the genes BRCA1 and BRCA2. Detrimental mutations in these tumor suppressor genes produce a hereditary breast-ovarian melanoma syndrome in affected families. Mutations in BRCA1 and BRCA2 are distinctive, and breast cancer is relatively original, so these mutations consequently account for only five to ten percent of all breast cancer cases in women. 1000s of distinctive types of mutations in these genes have been recognized. Excessive-danger mutations, which disable an primary error-free DNA repair procedure (homology directed repair), tremendously develop the character's threat of setting up breast cancer, ovarian melanoma and specific different cancers. Why BRCA1 and BRCA2 mutations lead preferentially to cancers of the breast and ovary is not identified, but lack of BRCA1 function seems to result in non-useful x-chromosome inactivation. No longer all mutations are excessive-chance; some show up to be harmless editions. The cancer hazard related to any given mutation varies greatly and depends on the distinctive variety and area of the mutation and in all probability different person reasons. Ladies with unsafe mutations in either BRCA1 or BRCA2 have risk of breast melanoma that is about five occasions the average chance, and a hazard of ovarian cancer that's about ten to thirty occasions common. BRCA1 mutations typically confer a higher danger of breast and ovarian melanoma in females than BRCA2 mutations. Having a high-threat mutation does no longer guarantee that the girl will increase any sort of cancer, or warranty that any melanoma that appears was once genuinely induced through the mutation, alternatively than every other element, like alcohol consumption.

Paul Andersen describes the major mutations found in the living world. He starts with an analogy comparing the information in DNA with the information in a recipe. Changes in the DNA can result in changes to the protein, like changes in the recipe can result in changes in the food. He describes the three major point mutations; substitutions, deletions and insertions. He also describes several chromosomal mutations.

3: Molecular basis of cancer part 1: changes in DNA underlie cancer
proteins. This video, the first in a series on the molecular basis of cancer, seeks to explain that changes in DNA, and more specifically genes, underlie cancer. Cells in a single tumour originate from a single cell that has undergone malignant transformation. The changes occur in the formation of a mutation to the cells DNA. Mutations cause permanent changes in genes - the sequences of DNA that provide a code for making proteins. Proteins are important because the proteins a cell makes determines what kind of cell it is and what it does (how it behaves). Mutations cause permanent changes in the function of proteins produced. Because DNA is passed on from one cell to the next, these changes are inherited by the cell's progeny (the cells it produces when it divides). This is why cancer is considered to be a genetic disease. It doesn't necessarily mean all cancers are inherited - rather that the damage that underlies cancer is, by and large, to genes. The next video in the series will look at the specific abilities cells need to gain, through mutations, to become cancerous. References Kumar, V., & Robbins, S. L. 1. (2007).
