Unregulated Cell Proliferation can lead to Cancer if proliferation signaling pathways are not maintained under strict control. In Subject 03, you will learn why growth factors such as EGF, proteins like (TGF-beta), beta-catenin and mTOR, and also transcription factors, such as p53, are important to controlling and regulating Cell Proliferation. In addition, those enrolled in the course will come across concepts such as Oxidative phosphorylation, the Warburg effect and the TERT gene role in telomeric DNA synthesis.
