  1. 1. <ul><li>Desmosomes
  2. 2. Like hemidesmosomes because they involved the formation of plaques on the cytoplasmic side of membrane and link/organize keratans or intermediate filaments
  3. 3. Difference: different types of transmembrane proteins interacting with one another in a homophylic way to link the PM together
  4. 4. Hemidesmomsomes use integrins to link to the basal lamina
  5. 5. Similarities and Differences
  6. 6. Form a plaque
  7. 7. Organize keratan intermiedate filaments
  8. 8. Desomosomes link up cells together
  9. 9. Hemi link cell membrane to basal lamina

  90. 90. Neoplastic cells
  91. 91. Moles
  92. 92. Not cancerous
  93. 93. Cells are benign and remain intact in primary tissue from which they rose
  94. 94. Divided in an unrestricted way for a period of time
  95. 95. Uncontrolled mitosis
  96. 96. All cancers have tumoregenic cells but not all tumors are cancerous
  97. 97. Characteristics of cancer cells
  98. 98. Reproduce without restrictions on mitosis
  99. 99. Can invade and colonize regions in and outside of primary source (invasive and colonize)
  100. 100. Benign
  101. 101. Neoplastic cells that divide in an unrestricted way but remain in source tissue
  102. 102. Don’t have to mecome malignant necessarily, form metasteses (1/1000 cells that has become neoplastic can become metastatic
  103. 103. Can form a tumor, often clonal – arising from a SINGLE cell, which most cancers are often from
  104. 104. If undergone a mutation, benign cells can loose dependence on attachment to one another as well as to the basal lamina and actively secrete proteases that chew away basal lamina and connective tissue/proteoglycans in connective tissue to move into blood stream and through it.
  105. 105. Malignant
  106. 106. Have the ability to migrate to a secondary source
  107. 107. Can form metastastes/metastasize in secondary site
  108. 108. Cells attach to endothelium and secrete proteases that allow them to move into tissues of secondary source – extravazation, the same sort of mechanisms that immune cells use to move to another point from the capillaries
  109. 109. Metastatic
  110. 110. Tumor in a secondary site that is formed by original malignant cells
  111. 111. Cues that increase chance of secondary tumor formation in particular cell types
  112. 112. Ex: Epithelial tumors often lead to liver tumors
  113. 113. Names given to particular tumor types/types of cancers
  114. 114. Skin/epithelia = carcinomas
  115. 115. Sarcomas = muscle tissue/connective tissue
  116. 116. Leukemia/lymphoma = hematopoietic system
  117. 117. Leukemia – unrestricted growth of t cells or b cells/WBC of immune system
  118. 118. Gives rise to RBC/WBC/platelets
  119. 119. Nervous system cancers

  123. 123. What makes cells oncogenic/neoplastic? (oncogenic transformation)
  124. 124. Characteristics
  125. 125. Normal cells when grown in culture exhibit contact inhibition unless reached hayflick limit
  126. 126. Cancer cells do not stop dividing. Exhibit a loss of contact inhibition (will grow on top rather than on substrate = loss of contact dependence on ECM/cell adhesion for survival)
  127. 127. No signal that is mediated to tell a cell to stop dividing
  128. 128. Don’t depend on adhesions to survive whether to neighbor or substrate
  129. 129. Lack of dependence on GFs – in regulating mitosis -G1-
  130. 130. Tumorigenic cells will move through G1 checkpoint, completely independent of it
  131. 131. Rb Pi’ed > E2F is turned on > past G1 to S phase > DNA divides > Mitosis
  132. 132. Cells in the presence of GFs will move to senescence and cell growth will stop
  133. 133. Cancer cells don’t depend on GFs and as time continues, the number of cancer cells increases in a linear way. Loss of senescence (aging and death) in cancer cells
  134. 134. Disorganized cytoskeleton of mobile cells and not responding to environmental cues.
  135. 135. MT organization is very dense and doesn’t take on a particular arrangement
  136. 136. Can form adhesions and break rapidly
  137. 137. Sometimes arise from any abnormal number of chromosomes (46 for humans) = aneuploidy – (alignment of chromosomes not occurring could be one – or replicative events didn’t occur properly)
  138. 138. Chemical carcinogens
  139. 139. Within coding region for p53
  140. 140. Losing control of p53, cells have a difficult time undergoing apoptosis
  141. 141. Other sites of DNA
  142. 142. UV – Cytoseine to two thymidine – disrupts how gene functions
  143. 143. Tanning beds are UVa and UVb which are more mutagenic than just UV
  144. 144. Making immortalized cell lines
  145. 145. Mice cells undergo crisis and proliferate in culture to form an immortalized cell line that is cancerous – dividing in unrestricted way
  146. 146. Unless virally infected or DNA mutated, human cells won’t become immortalized
  147. 147. Disorganized cytoskeleton
