    • Old age
    • senses Mutations
    • senses chemicals
    • senses microbes invade
    • KNOWS it needs to DIE to protect body.

  56. Stem Cells vs.
    Tumor Cells
    • SIMILAR:
    • High Rate of Proliferation
    • May remain Quiescent for long time
    • Resistant to Apoptosis
    • 1)enhanced Telomerase activity
    • 2)Enhanced DNA repair activities
    • 3)membrane bound transporters that exclude foreign antigens better and more so than other cell types

  57. May not replicate for a long time until triggered
  58. Why is it so bad that stem cells may be the cause of all tumor cells?
    • their high rate of proliferation
    • may remain quiescent for long time
    • Resistance to Apoptosis makes them extremely difficult to kill!
