Tumor suppressor genes and oncogenes are important regulatory genes which encode proteins regulating transitions in and out of the cell cycle and which also have a role in the gateway to terminal differentiation (Tripathy & Benz, 1992). Defects in tumor suppressor genes and oncogenes result in uncontrolled cell division, which leads to cancer (Tripathy & Benz, 1992). Oncogenes are mutated proto-oncogenes that have a role in malignancy of tumors and most frequently regulate cell cycle re-entry… CONTINUE READING
