The role of tumor suppressor genes in cancer prevention and therapy.
Cancer is a complex disease that arises from a combination of genetic and environmental factors. Tumor suppressor genes (TSGs) are an essential component of the genetic machinery that regulates cell growth and division. Their role is to prevent uncontrolled cell growth and proliferation, and their loss or inactivation can lead to the development of cancer. In this article, we will explore the role of TSGs in cancer prevention and therapy. Tumor suppressor genes are a group of genes that regulate cell growth and division by inhibiting the progression of the cell cycle. TSGs play a crucial role in maintaining the integrity of the genome by preventing mutations and DNA damage.Author(s): Zhang Han
