Cancer is the result of damage to DNA that leads to loss of control of cell proliferation. The majority of cancers demonstrate mutations in a tumor suppressor gene. However, most cancers are not derived from a hereditary predisposition to cancer. 2 demonstrates the much more common genotype of a cancer occurring solely as the result of a somatic mutation. The proband at the top of the figure is a woman with two normal copies of RB 1. In the convention of genetic pedigrees this woman is shown as an unshaded (unaffected) circle.

The degraded DNA demonstrates a ladder of oligonucleotide fragments of 180 to 200 bp as seen on an electrophoretic gel, characteristic of apoptosis. The rapid destruction of DNA in apoptosis may occur to prevent a dying cell from passing on intact DNA fragments to its neighbors. The mechanisms by which apoptosis are regulated to form part of the homeostatic processes that control tissue growth and development are known only in part. Several genes are known to modulate or initiate apoptosis, probably as part of multiple alternate pathways.

The gene that causes Werner's syndrome, one form of hereditary premature aging with diminished in vitro fibroblast doublings, has recently been cloned. Werner's syndrome patients apparently have a defective DNA helicase (one of the enzymes necessary for replication and repair). This would be expected to lead to a more rapid accumulation of incorrectly repaired double-strand DNA breaks. Patients with progeria, an even more rapid premature aging, start life with shortened telomeres. Thus they reach the critical "too short" limit much sooner than normal subjects.
