Genes called proto-oncogenes typically support cell growth and division
to create new cells or to support cell survival. When a proto-oncogene
mutates (changes) or has too many copies, it can be accidentally turned
on (activated), at which time it is now referred to as an oncogene. The
cell may then begin to expand uncontrollably, which might result in
cancer. Normal proto-oncogene activity is comparable to how a car’s
gas pedal works. It aids in the cell’s division and growth. An oncogene
is comparable to a gas pedal that is jammed down, causing the cell to
divide uncontrollably [1]. Oncogenes can be triggered (turned on) in
cells in a variety of ways. For instance:
