Beta-catenin Accelerates Human Papilloma Virus
The authors of this study previously found that abnormal Wnt signaling occurs in keratinocytes in vitro infected by HPV, causing their immortalization. Also, high expression of beta-catenin has been found in cervical samples infected with HPV. Thus, the authors of this paper hypothesized that ‘activation of canonical Wnt signaling is one of the potential mechanisms facilitating cervical cancer progression in HPV-infected cells’ i. that defected Wnt signaling, involving beta-catenin, is the

Cancer article review
There are two signaling pathways that are dysregulated by cancer cells. The first is the extrinsic pathway in which activation occurs when pro-apoptotic ligands bind to pro­­-apoptotic cell receptors. The second one is intrinsic which is triggered within the cell by severe cell stress such as DNA damage.Cancer cells are also known to resist changes through other ways which include: Autophagy in which cell organelles are broken down for energy metabolism which is part of overall cell

Impacts of Overpopulation on the Environment
Failure to maintain the carrying capacity of the world leads to overconsumption of the available resources. I completely concur with the authors on this. This is because the bigger the population, the higher the rate of consumption and the higher the release of pollutants. As such, the rate of consumption should be equal to the availability of resources in order to ensure sustainability. The book states that ecological deterioration is traced to too many people due to “too many cars, too much

In the experiment that she carried in the laboratory she had the idea of base pairing of hydrogen bonding (Watson 1980).The photo 51 was the source of data to Watson and Crick that used the model developed by Rosalind in Chemistry and used it in biology. The image gave the two scientists Wartson and Crick some pieces of information that help in the discovery of the structure of the double helix of the DNA. Seeing the photo, Wartson and Crick realized that DNA must have double helix structures.
