IB Biology - Tumour and Cancer Development
Chapter 1.6 - Cell Division
Application: The correlation between smoking and incidence of cancers.
Skill: Determination of a mitotic index from a micrograph.
Tumour = the clump of the excessive cells due to the non-regular cell cycle
Metastasis = the spreading of cancer cells from the original area to other places within the bod
Mutagen = agents that alter DNA, not 100% is carcinogenCarcinogen = the mutagens that cause cancer
Oncogene = genes with potential to cause cancer
Smoking and Cancer
mitotic index = the indicator of the efficiency of chemotherapy by counting the ratio of cells undergo mitosis to the total no. of cell
