Question 8

  1. Imagine you are a graduate student trying to understand the genetics of osteosarcoma, a cancer of bone. You discover a novel mutation in a G1/S Cdk that correlates with the development of osteosarcoma in some people. Which of the following mutations would indicate that it contributes to the progression of cancer in these patients?
  2. One that prevents the Cdk from binding to ATP
  3. One that prevents the Cdk from binding to cyclin
  4. One that results in constitutive activation of the kinase
  5. All of the above
