Would you expect cancer to arise more often in types of cells that divide frequently (such as skin cells), or in types of cells that divide rarely or not at all (such as nerve cells)? Explain your reasoning.© BrainMass Inc. brainmass.com October 9, 2019, 8:13 pm ad1c9bdddf
Dividing cells are frequently affected by the cancer. As cells proceeds through the cell cycle, DNA replication, chromosome condensation and chromatid sepration occurs in a precise and coordinated manner. Cells make commitments to proceed through the cell division at two pints : 1. Start, late in G1 phase at ...
This solution discusses how cell division and cancerous cell division works as a foundation for understanding why cancer would be unable to arise in nerve cells.
