Whole hosts of integrin receptors present at the basal surface of epithelial cells are attached to the basement membrane underneath and can induce apoptosis when they are not bound to their ligand. These phenomena in epithelial cells are called “anoikis”—detachment-induced cell death. The 20 cell intrinsic pathway involves the mitochondrial apoptotic pathway initiated by a DNA damage signal from the nucleus. Exposure to chemical genotoxins or radiation results in the blockage of DNA replication, which leads to collapse of replication forks and DNA double strand breaks (DSB) formation.

Twenty to thirty percent of breast cancer cells overexpressing this receptor at their cell surface induce apoptosis upon blocking by this specific antibody. A second example is imatinib or gleevec, which specifically blocks the tyrosine kinase domain of BCR-ABL protein in leukemia. It is very effective in killing the leukemic cells and reducing the tumor burden in patients. Therefore, it has been proposed that cancer cells become “addicted” to the oncogenes or the oncogenic pathways. Therefore, blocking one oncogenic pathway could induce apoptosis in the cells that overexpress it.

Two mutations of the “right type” are 10 Dhara Figure 5 Insertional mutagenesis. (A) A large proportion of the ALV proviruses were integrated into the chromosomal DNA segment carrying the c-myc proto-oncogene; the majority were integrated between the first noncoding exon of c-myc and the second exon, in which the myc reading frame begins. The integration sites are shown in the figure (filled triangles). As indicated, most but not all of the proviruses were integrated in the same transcriptional orientation as that of the c-myc gene.
