By isolating certain genes in a cancer cell, called oncogenes, researchers hope to be able to affect the lifespan and proliferation of certain cancer cells. Oncogenes are genes in a cancer cell that influence the mutation, amplification, and proliferation of the cell. Anti-oncogenes are genes that may turn off cancer cells, and transform them back to normal cells.
