  1. 1. Targeting PTEN May Prevent Skin Cancer And Ultraviolet Light Affects Function of Protein Involved in Ewing's Sarcoma.<br />Natalia Zuleta Rendón <br />Medicine Student<br />3rd Semester<br />
  2. 2. FOLDING<br />
  3. 3. FOLDING<br />
  4. 4. INTRODUCTION<br />NER and repair of mismatches is the principal defense against UV rays<br />These factors may lead to incorrect addition of bases during replication<br />
  5. 5. TARGETING PTEN MAY PREVENT SKIN CANCER<br />SCIENCE DAILY (JULY 26, 2011)<br />
  6. 6. TARGETING PTEN MAY PREVENT SKIN CANCER<br />Phosphatase and tensin homolog ( PTEN ) is a protein that, in humans, is encoded by the PTEN gene .<br />Regulateof the cell cycle , preventing cells from growing and dividing too rapidly<br />
  7. 7. TARGETING PTEN MAY PREVENT SKIN CANCER<br />The degree of inactivation is proportional to the aggressiveness of the disease, that is, the less work the worse the prognosis gene for the patient. <br />
  8. 8. TARGETING PTEN MAY PREVENT SKIN CANCER<br />Plays a role as a key modulator of the AKT-mTOR signaling pathway controlling the tempo of the process of newborn neurons integration during adult neurogenesis. May be a negative regulator of insulin signaling and glucose metabolism in adipose tissue. <br />
  9. 9. OBSERVATION<br />With the discovery of this gene could prevent several types of cancer since its action is to prevent cells from multiplying rapidly. Also important to note that if there is a good diet can increase your activity. This gene will be a challenge to modern science as if it can increase its activity was abolished many cancers. (endometrial cancer, prostate and breast) <br />
  10. 10. ULTRAVIOLET LIGHT AFFECTS FUNCTION OF PROTEIN IN EWING’S SARCOMA<br />ScienceDaily (August 3, 2011)<br />
  11. 11. ULTRAVIOLET LIGHT AFFECTS FUNCTION OF PROTEIN IN EWING’S SARCOMA<br />The genetic circuits altered in cancer processes include the activation or inhibition of various genes and proteins.<br /> In the case of Ewing's sarcoma, EWS protein alterations induce changes in the expression of various genes, thus affecting the ability to detect and correct DNA damage.<br />
  12. 12. ULTRAVIOLET LIGHT AFFECTS FUNCTION OF PROTEIN IN EWING’S SARCOMA<br />The EWS protein stops being joined to the genes it regulates and relocates to structures located within the cell nucleus known as nucleoli. The relocation results in changes in the expression of the genes regulated by EWS, and these changes are important for an appropriate response to DNA damage.<br />
  13. 13. ULTRAVIOLET LIGHT AFFECTS FUNCTION OF PROTEIN IN EWING’S SARCOMA<br />UV radiation can also produce pyrimidine  dimers (TT) block transcription  which also leads to skin cancer.<br />
  14. 14. oBSERVATION<br />The DNA repair mechanisms are the most active response to UV light. Without them we could not expose any type of radiation (solar or conventional light) because it would be fatal for the skin. This study can conclude that these mechanisms should be preserved to prevent many diseases and have a good quality of life.<br />
  15. 15. MEDICAL UTILITY<br />
  16. 16. Medical utility<br />Through recent advances humanity could prevent and cure many diseases that are deadly and have high prevalence. <br />With the manipulation of genetic material, DNA analysis could know that disease will develop each person and what is the best way to cure them.<br />
  17. 17. Medical utility<br />If they are created more consistent treatment to  genetic damage, medicine could increase the quality of life of patients, always seeking wellness and cure disease with few adverse effects.<br />
  18. 18. Medical utility<br />For medicine is very important to be hand in hand with advances genetic  Nothing less eradicated multiple  cancers, congenital  diseases and diseases caused by bad DNA repair mechanisms.<br />
