Indole 3 Carbinol Powder and Carcinogenic Factors - Ⅶ
- Sep 12, 2019 -

In the last paragraph of the previous article, we learned about the "fueling gene". In this article we will start it from its counterpart, "brake genes". 

The "brake gene" is responsible for slowing or terminating cell growth for the replacement of the original function by the new cell. For example, the human body has millions of skin cells that die and fall off every day, which is regulated by the "brake gene." In biology, some "fueling genes" produce mutations that cause cancer. We call this part of the gene a proto-oncogene, and the "brake gene" that controls growth is called a tumor suppressor gene.

When a proto-oncogene or a tumor suppressor gene is mutated, normal cells become cancer cells that are not growing in control. When cancer cells begin to divide indefinitely, they must draw enough nutrients, so normal cells will develop poorly or starve directly.

At the same time, growing tumors (cancer cell groups) also squeeze normal cell survival space. When normal cells are squeezed nowhere to survive, they will not be able to perform normal organ functions, which will lead to the decline of human function.

The defective gene itself is more susceptible to mutation than normal cells. As in the previous article, Angelina Jolie's BRCA1 makes her breast cancer risk as high as 87%. Then, factors such as living environment, eating habits, and mental state will further increase the chance of mutation.
