Example text

These 'immediate-early' genes are thought to be involved in enabling the cell to enter the proliferative phase and are, therefore, potential targets for oncogenic activation. The normal functions of proteins encoded by some of these immediateearly genes have been elucidated. Some are structural and cytoskeletal proteins required for changes in the cell's architecture. Others are cytokines and elements of signal transduction pathways. Yet others are transcription factors: DNA-binding proteins which modulate the transcriptional activity of target genes and are presumed to be involved in the genetic switch from quiescence to proliferation.

The defective cancer cell escapes restraints that limit the proliferation of normal cells and imparts this ability to its daughter cells. The heritability of the malignant phenotype demonstrates that the key lesions that result in cancer are genetic in origin. Consistent with the idea that cancer arises by mutation, almost all carcinogens are either direct mutagens or act to increase the chances of sustaining permanent genetic damage, for example by promoting increased cell proliferation. Recently, the precise molecular mechanisms involved in the control of cell proliferation, differentiation and death in normal cells, and the ways in which they become deregulated in cancer cells, have begun to be elucidated.

G. the murine fibroblast cell line, NIH3T3) the properties of tumour cells in vitro. Such transformed cells are anchorageindependent and grow in soft agar, and are able to form tumours in immunocompromised nude mice. Oncogenes identified by such genetransfer experiments are typically mutated in ways that alter the functions of the protein they encode. For example, members of the ras protooncogene family which have become oncogenically activated by point mutations readily transform NIH3T3 cells.
