Yuluğ Bilkent University Department of Molecular Biology and Genetics firstname.lastname@example.org: 1 MOLECULAR BASIS OF CANCER Assoc.Prof. Işık G. Yuluğ Bilkent University Department of Molecular Biology and Genetics email@example.comCellular Basis of Cancer: 2 Cellular Basis of Cancer Cancer is a collection of diseases characterized by abnormal and uncontrolled growth Cancer arises from a loss of normal growth control In normal tissues, the rates of new cell growth and old cell death are kept in balance In cancer, this balance is disrupted This disruption can result from 1) uncontrolled cell growth or 2) loss of a cell's ability to undergo apoptosisPowerPoint Presentation: 3 Cancer Cell Do Not Grow Faster Than Normal Cells Rather, Their Growth is Just UncontrolledPowerPoint Presentation: 4 1 fertilized egg 50x10 12 Proliferation Differentiation Death 10 16 cell divisions/lifetimePowerPoint Presentation: 5 Proliferation Differentiation Death Transit Proliferating Exiting Renewing Cellular equilibriumPowerPoint Presentation: 6 Proliferation Differentiation Death Cancer: disruption of cellular equilibriumPowerPoint Presentation: 7 Post mitotic Stem cell Differentiated Normal senescent differentiated cell Benign tumor Grade 2 malignancy Grade 3 or 4 malignancy Stem cells as the target of carcinogensInvasion and Metastasis : 8 Invasion and Metastasis Abnormal cells proliferate and spread (metastasize) to other parts of the body Invasion - direct migration and penetration into neighboring tissues Metastasis - cancer cells penetrate into lymphatic system and blood vesselsPowerPoint Presentation: 9 Benign tumors generally do not spread by invasion or metastasis Malignant tumors are capable of spreading by invasion and metastasis Malignant versus Benign TumorsWhat causes Cancer?: 10 What causes Cancer? Cancer is caused by alterations or mutations in the genetic code Can be induced in somatic cells by: Carcinogenic chemicals Radiation Some viruses Heredity - 5%PowerPoint Presentation: 11 Hanahan and Weinberg, Cell 100: 57, 2000 Apoptosis Oncogenes Tumor Suppressor Inv. and Mets Angiogenesis Cell cyclePowerPoint Presentation: 12 What is the molecular basis of cancer? Cancer is a gene tic disease. Mutations in genes result in altered proteins During cell division External agents Random event Most cancers result from mutations in somatic cells Some cancers are caused by mutations in germline cellsPowerPoint Presentation: 13 Theories of cancer genesis Standard Dogma Proto-oncogenes (Ras – melanoma) Tumor suppressor genes (p53 – various cancers) Modified Dogma Mutation in a DNA repair gene leads to the accumulation of unrepaired mutations (xeroderma pigmentosum) Early-Instability Theory Master genes required for adequate cell reproduction are disabled, resulting in aneuploidy (Philadelphia chromosome)PowerPoint Presentation: 14 CANCER AND GENETICS Cancer: genome disease Causes of genomic changes Effects of genomic changes Revolution in cancer treatment: ‘Smart Bullets Period’PowerPoint Presentation: 15 CANCER: GENOME DISEASE Loss of DNA Gain of DNA Changes in nucleotides Epigenetic effectsPowerPoint Presentation: 16 Signs for Genomic Changes in Cancer Changes in chromosome numbers - Aneuploidy Chromosomal changes Increase in DNA copy number -15 different region - Loss in chromosomal - 200.000 regions Micro changes - Microsatellite changes Mikrosatellite - 100.000 - Nucleotide changesPowerPoint Presentation: 17PowerPoint Presentation: 18 Chromosomal changes in the genome of cancer cells: tip of the iceberg Terminal Deletion http://www.tokyo-med.ac.jp/genet/cai-e.htm Ring Chromosome Robertsonian Translocation Deletion Reciprocal translocation Isochromosomes Insertion Inversion DuplicationPowerPoint Presentation: 19 Nucleotide changes in the genome of cancer cells: unseen site of the iceberg Nucleotide Deletions Nucleotide Insertions Nucleotide Substitutions http://www.tokyo-med.ac.jp/genet/cai-e.htmPowerPoint Presentation: 20 DNA Loss in cancer cellsPowerPoint Presentation: 21 Early Brain Tumor ( Astrocytoma Stage II ) Advance Brain Tumor Gl i oblastoma Multiform ( Stage IV) DNA Loss in cancer cells : beyond coincidence . ..PowerPoint Presentation: 22 p53 locus Chromosomal loss: Mostly, it is a sign for the loss of a tumor suppressor gene PTEN locus CDKN2 locus RB1 locus ??? locusPowerPoint Presentation: 23 Cancer: Genome Disease Epigenetic effectsPowerPoint Presentation: 24 Genetic and Epigenetic Silencing of Tumor Suppressor Genes Plass - 2002PowerPoint Presentation: 25 Carcinogenic chemicals UV Replication Errors Radiation Viruses Rearrangements (translocation, deletions, amplifications) Point mutations Alters DNA of genes controlling cell proliferation.

Mutations in DNA repair genes lead to an increase in the frequency of mutations in other genes, such as proto-oncogenes and tumor suppressor genes. i.e. Breast cancer susceptibility genes (BRCA1 and BRCA2) Hereditary non-polyposis colon cancer susceptibility genes (MSH2, MLH1, PMS1, PMS2) have DNA repair functions. Their mutation will cause tumorigenesis.
