9.Malignant tumors are different from benign tumors because malignant tumors perform metastasis. Which of the following most accurately describes metastasis?
a. Cancer cells promote the growth of blood vessels towards them. b. Cancer cells spread to distant tissues and create a new tumor. c. Cancer cells divide uncontrollably because of genetic mutations. d. Cancer cells commit apoptosis (“programmed cell death”) to prevent the spread of the tumor.
10.Some types of chemotherapy target DNA. Explain why cancer cells are particularly damaged by chemotherapy? Include the specific event in mitosis that is responsible.
11.If a proto-oncogene is mutated into an oncogene, what message will be sent to the cell?
a. “Divide only at the right time” b. “Divide! Divide! Divide all the time!” c. “Don’t divide at the wrong time or I will make you commit apoptosis
12. What will happen in a cell that has an oncogene and normal tumor suppressor gene?
a. The cell will still divide at the normal rate but has a predisposition to becoming cancerous. b. The cell will destroy its nucleus and disrupt its ETC, leading to the cell’s death. c. The cell will divide uncontrollably.
