9.3 The Cell Cycle and Cancer

9.3 The Cell Cycle and Cancer Abnormal growth of cells is called a tumor Benign tumors are not cancerous Encapsulated Do not invade neighboring tissue or spread Malignant tumors are cancerous Not encapsulated Readily invade neighboring tissues May also detach and lodge in distant places (metastasis) Results from mutation of genes regulating the cell cycle Development of cancer Tends to be gradual May take years before a cell is obviously cancerous 1 The Cell Cycle and Cancer Characteristics of Cancer Cells

Lack differentiation Are non-specialized Are immortal (can enter cell cycle repeatedly) Have abnormal nuclei May be enlarged May have abnormal number of chromosomes Often have extra copies of genes Do not undergo apoptosis Normally, cells with damaged DNA undergo apoptosis The immune system can also recognize abnormal cells and trigger apoptosis Cancer cells are abnormal but fail to undergo apoptosis 2 The Cell Cycle and Cancer Characteristics of Cancer Cells Form tumors Mitosis is normally controlled by contact with neighboring cells contact inhibition Cancer cells have lost contact inhibition Undergo metastasis Original tumor easily fragments New tumors appear in other organs Undergo angiogenesis

Formation of new blood vessels Brings nutrients and oxygen to the tumor 3 Progression of Cancer Copyright The McGraw-Hill Companies, Inc. Permission required for reproduction or display. New mutations arise, and one cell (brown) has the ability to start a tumor. primary tumor lymphatic vessel blood vessel Cancer in situ. The tumor is at its place of origin. One cell (purple) mutates further. lymphatic vessel blood vessel

Cancer cells now have the ability to invade lymphatic and blood vessels and travel throughout the body. New metastatic tumors are found some distance from the primary tumor. 4 Cancer Cells vs. Normal Cells 5 The Cell Cycle and Cancer Origin of Cancer Oncogenes Proto-oncogenes promote the cell cycle in various ways If a proto-oncogene is mutated, it may become an oncogene Tumor suppressor genes inhibit the cell cycle in various ways If a tumor suppressor gene becomes inactive, it may promote cancer development Both proto-oncogenes and tumor suppressor genes are normally regulated in coordination with organisms growth plan 6

The Cell Cycle and Cancer Origin of Cancer Chromosomes normally have special material at each end called telomeres These get shorter each cell division When they get very short, the cell will no longer divide Telomerase is an enzyme that maintains the length of telomeres Mutations in telomerase gene: Cause telomeres to continue to lengthen, which Allows cancer cells to continually divide 7 Causes of Cancer Copyright The McGraw-Hill Companies, Inc.

growth factor Activates signaling proteins in a stimulatory pathway that extends to the nucleus. receptor protein Pesticides and herbicides P signaling protein phosphate b. Effect of growth factor Viruses oncogene a. Influences that cause mutated proto-oncogenes

(called oncogenes) and mutated tumor suppressor genes P P Radiation sources activated signaling protein Stimulatory pathway gene product promotes cell cycle Inhibitory pathway gene product inhibits cell cycle

proto-oncogene Codes for a growth factor, a receptor protein, or a signaling protein in a stimulatory pathway. If a proto-oncogene becomes an oncogene, the end result can be active cell division. c. Stimulatory pathway and inhibitory pathway tumor suppressor gene Codes for a signaling protein in an inhibitory pathway. If a tumor suppressor gene mutates, the end result can be active cell division. d. Cancerous skin cell 1,100X d: Biophoto Associates/Photo Researchers, Inc.
