How is the cell cycle linked to cancer?
Well im not a scientist or anything but i know its something to do with the uncontrolled growth of cells. its like... your bodys cells make copies of themselves. that's the reason you sometimes get a tumor...is because there are cells where they shouldn't be growing things that shouldn't be there. Some cancers.. like leukemia usually don't form tumors these cancer cells involve the blood and blood-forming organs and circulate through other tissues where they grow. maybe something you don't want to know but we all have cancerous cells inside of us. our body recognizes them and fights them off though...usually

All cancer is related to the cell cycle. The cell cycle is the cycle of events and regulations that occur through the life of a cell. Part of the cell cycle is cell division. This process needs to be carefully regulated, because un-controlled cell division is called cancer. There are molecules withi…n a cell that respond to signals and stimuli from the envoronment to decide is the cell is allowed to divide. These pathways relay mostly on cyclin and cyclin-dependent kinases. If the regulations fail in a cell - in this case, a skin cell - then you have a cencerous condition in the tissue - in this case, skin cancer. ( Full Answer )
No.. Some people are just a bit paranoid to buy them, so they say cancer is the reason they dont have them.
because cancer happens when control over the cell cycle has broken down the cell cycle is the series of events that cells go through as they grow and divide, and cancer is a disorder in which some of the body's cells lose the ability to control growth
Cancer is related to the cell cycle because when a person gets infected, the cancerous cells attack healthy cells and then mutate the cells and then it rapidly creates new, mutated cells. The mutated cells then attack more healthy cells and the process is repeated. Cancerous cells can be killed with… radiation ( Full Answer )
Using deodorant puts you at risk of developing cancer depending on the amount of aluminum in it. The aluminum penetrates the skin and is absorbs into the bloodstream to prevent sweating. Hope this helps!
My menstrual cycle is linked to the lunar cycle. I menstruate on the full moon, or within one day of the full moon. I believe there are studies showing a correlation in some women. http://www.athenainstitute.com/lunarmpl.html
Skin cancer (any cancer for that matter) is when the cell cycle becomes completely unregulated and only performs cell division without its normal cell functions.
Cancer A cell is incessantly receiving messages, eachfrom its own genes and from alternative cells. Some tell it to growand multiply, others tell it to prevent growing and rest, or maybeto die. If there are enough 'grow' messages, future stage of thecell's life starts. in an exceedingly neoplastic …cell, the messagesto grow could also be altered, or the messages to prevent growingor to die could also be missing. The cell then begins to growuncontrollably and divide too usually.Every time a traditional celldivides, the ends of its chromosomes become shorter. Once they needworn down, the cell dies and is replaced. Cancer cells cheat thismethod - they preserve their long chromosomes by regularly addingbits back on. This method permits cancer cells to measureforever. ( Full Answer )
By changes in one or more of the genes controlling production of enzymes involved in the cell cycle.
Cancer cell cycle is different because they multiply faster than a normal cell and when they multiply fast there is a lot of mistakes with them normal cells take a while before they are developed
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. In the past a common belief was that cancer ce…lls 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.

Cancer is cased from a damaged cell that can spread to the other cells. There is no known way to this date that can help repair these cells. There are some methods such as stem cells which can copy and replace other cells. So cancer is a type of cell. false
Cancer is the uncontrolled growth and division of cells. It can kill an organism by crowding out of normal cells, resulting in the lose of tissue. The main causes of cancer are environmental factors.
Not necessarily. Cancerous cells means there is a possibility of cancer or you could just have cells that are mutating and multiplying weird. If the doctor says for have cancerous cells, there will more than likely be more tests run, and things done to make the cells go away.
A type of cancer that is linked to a virus is cervical cancer. Cervical cancer developes from an infection with a strain of human papillomavirus.
\nA change in the Cell cycle causes Lung cancer or any other cancer. lung cancer doesn't affect the cell cycle. In the interphase of the cell there are three phases G1, S and the G2 phase . generally the cells enter G0(g zero) phase if further division of cells is not needed. this is controlled by t…he cell cycle regulatory compounds(cyclins and kinases). \nIf the cell doesn't enter the G0 phase, this causes continuous division of them and called a cancer.\nthis is brought up by Carcinogens (cancer causing agents).

All cell cycle phases are regulated at cell cycle checkpoints thatcomprise of receptor collectivities. Defects at the checkpoint ofthe G1 and G2-M phases lead to cancer by allowing and enhancing theproliferation of cancer cells.
Cancer has a chaotic effect on the cell cycle. Cancer typicallymakes cells reproduce quickly and in an out of control manner.
When the cell cycle is damaged or disrupted, there might be a factor for cancer. As a cell goes through mitosis, it has to hit and pass various checkpoints to ensure its mutating right. If one of these checkpoints is damaged or missed this also may pose a risk for cancer.
Yes, fluid around the lungs can be caused by cancer. A doctor will perform a Thoracentesis to determine the cause of the fluid's presence.
How does chemotherapy work? Normal cells in the body are constantly dividing to produce new cells in order to replace cells which are damaged or worn out. This process of normal cell division is very precisely controlled so that the number of new cells produced exactly matches the number of cells t…hat need to be replaced. A cancer develops when a cell, or group of cells, escape from the normal control process and begin to divide and multiply in a random fashion which leads to an excessive number of cells being produced. Chemotherapy simply means treatment with drugs and can be used to describe the use of drugs in any illness. In cancer treatment 'chemotherapy' is shorthand for 'cytotoxic chemotherapy', the 'cytotoxics' being the main group of drugs used against cancer. The word cytotoxic means 'cell poison' and this actually describes how the drugs work. Cytotoxic drugs interfere with the process of cell reproduction so that when cancer cells come to reproduce (by dividing into two) they are unable to do so and die off. At the present time there are about a hundred different cytotoxic drugs approved for cancer treatment. All of these act in one way or another to interfere with the process of cell division. Unfortunately none of these drugs can tell the difference between normal cells and cancer cells. So they will all affect the reproduction of normal cells as well as cancer cells. This is why cytotoxic chemotherapy often causes unpleasant side-effects. Normal cells will usually recover from the effects of a dose of cytotoxic chemotherapy far more quickly than cancer cells. This is why chemotherapy is often given a number of short courses, with several weeks in between each course to allow for normal cells to recover. In this way treatment can be given which destroys cancer cells but causes no lasting injury to normal cells. Different cancers respond differently to cytotoxic chemotherapy. Some are very sensitive and can be cured with drug treatment. Others often respond to chemotherapy but are not sensitive enough to achieve cure. In these situations chemotherapy is given with the hope of prolonging good quality life. Others, despite all the different drugs available, remain almost completely resistant and unaffected by cytotoxic treatment. The great majority of drug treatment for cancer involves the use of cytotoxic drugs but there are a few types of cancer where treatment with hormones may also be helpful. This is considered in a separate question on hormone therapy for cancer. ( Full Answer )
Cancerous cells go through the same cycle as every other cell, except for that there are no checkpoints for the duplicating DNA and such to be proofread in, and usually they don't wait for the restriction signal to tell it to duplicate, it just does uncontrollably.
Yes. Cancer is caused by an unregulated cell cycle, causing the cells to multiply rapidly out of control. In addition, they proliferate primarily with fructose.
Not necessarily but if you dont eat healthy the cancer cells well grow and eventually you will have cancer Unhealthy while you have cancer (dairy, meat, junk food, soda, artficial juices)
Because cancer cells are able to skip the cell cycle checkpoints that are in place to ensure proper cell division.
The STD Human Papillomavirus (HPV) is linked to cervical cancer.This is why young people are given the HPV vaccine to help preventthem contracting HPV when they become sexually active and in orderto reduce risk of cancers like cervical cancer.
In the mid-1990s the consequence of controversial electromagnetic fields (EMFs) was still undetermined. The EPA's 1990 finding that EMFs are a "probable" cause of cancer had not yet had a tangible impact on the transformer industry.
The interphase, (which is the period for the cell to increase its size and the number of organelles in it or to get differentiated), becomes very short such that nuclear division occurs very rapidly and repeatedly.
The cell cycle is a well regulated system for normal division of cells over a period of a lifetime (genetically predetermined). When a cell is finished dividing normally, it should enter a certain phase. Cancer cells never enter that phase, and they keep dividing, multiplying uncontrolled. .
Cancer comes about because of a genetic alteration to a cell. Since cancer depends upon genetics, it is inherited by progeny, like any other genetic trait.
Because cancer cells exhibit uncontrolled cell proliferation and constantly progress through the cell cycle when they should not.
How might the relationship between cancer and the cell cycle be used in the search for causes of cancer?
Because cancer cells grow rapidly and use the "machinery" and the immune systems of the body, the cure for cancer may lay in the interruption of cell growth and genetic alteration of the immune system.
cancer cells are cells that dont go through the cell cycle properly and start rapidly multiplying because of one small division mistake from a regular cell cycle.
The majority of childhood leukemics are acquired by genetic diseases. This means that gene mutations and chromosome abnormalities in cells occur sporadically (by chance) and are not inherited from a parent. The immune system plays an important role in protecting the body from diseases, and possib…ly cancer. An alteration or defect in the immune system may increase the risk for developing leukemia. Factors such as exposure to certain viruses, environmental factors, chemical exposures, and various infections have been associated with damage to the immune system. With the exception of specific genetic syndromes, little is known about the causes of childhood leukemia. ( Full Answer )
precipitation is linked to the nitrogen cycle because air contains nitrogen and when the rail falls there's an average of about 12% nitrogen in the water that falls, which affects the nitrgen cycle by boosting nitrogen levels up to aproximetly 12g of nitrogen per 5m squared, which the added nitrogen… levels may affect delicate ecosystems if not properly managed. The increase in nitrogen levels is often caused by gases containing nitrogen being released into the atmosphere. ( Full Answer )

The current theory of cancer is "one mutation, one cancer". According to this theory, a dividing cell in your body acquires a genetic mutation that somehow disrupts the normal control mechanisms. This mutated cell then continues to grow and divide. If the immune system doesn't destroy the mutated ce…ll, and the cell is able to maintain nutrient flow into itself, it will eventually show up as a cancerous mass. However, new research is unveiling just how complicated the development of cancer is. For instance, as the mutated cells keep dividing, they keep acquiring new mutations which can significantly change the behavior of the overall tumor. Also, sometimes just one mutation is not sufficient to cause a cell to become cancerous - in some cancers it appears there have to be a series of specific mutations before the cells start to exhibit cancerous properties.

Cells can be affected by cancer in the Mitosis stage, when cells are splitting. Cancer rapidly increases cell reproduction.
According to Dr. Otto Heinrich Warburg(Nobel Prize Winner 1931), cancer cells change from being 'Aerobic'( oxygen-fueled ) to become 'Anaerobic'( non oxygen-fueled ), actually sugar-fueled! As oxygen can no longer be absorbed by these cells, our organs begin to break down and the cancer cell's need …for sugars, robs our bodies of their vital nutrients. In this state, oxygen can no longer be tolerated and actually becomes a poison to the cancerous cells, and in their drive to survive they enter into the blood stream and travel to other areas of the body to multiply, utilising the old adage of safety in numbers.

The pathway controlling G1-phase growth arrest is commonly altered in cancer cells, allowing cancer cells to divide despite shortened telomeres, which can lead to the genomic instability seen in malignant cells
Mutations affecting apoptosis or programmed cell death (such as an error in p53 protein). Any kind of mutation that increased rate of cell division, or extended telemeres, or inhibited DNA repair.
Cancer cells are already cancer, it is redundant for a cancer cell to get cancer, however, it is true that cancer cells can die, for various reasons. The reason why cancer is so dangerous to the body is that cancer receives all the same support that healthy cells receive, and is not attacked by the …immune system. The body takes care of its own cells; the blood supplies all the needs of cellular metabolism. That makes it easy for cells to survive. So even though cancer cells are abnormal and dysfunctional, they can usually survive because it is easy for them to do so. ( Full Answer )
In order for cancer to occur, mutagens or carcinogens must get into a cell and disrupt its normal mitotic function, either by altering genes that code for mitotic regulators or by ridding a cell of division regulators altogether.
Actually they do not stop dividing. A normal cell stops at the end of the cell cycle. Cancer cells pay no attention to the boundaries of other cells and tissues around them.
The two types of cell cycle genes if mutated cause cancer cells to divide uncontrollably are called tumor suppressor genes and?

In the most simplistic view, cancer happens when cells either"forget" to die or "forget" to quit dividing.
