Taught by Professor David Sadava | 30 min | Categories: The Great Courses Plus Online Health,Fitness & Nutrition Courses
Two types of carcinogens mutate DNA: chemicals and radiation. Build on what you’ve learned about DNA by looking specifically at how these carcinogens produce cancer at the cellular level. Then, examine carcinogens that don’t damage DNA and how epigenetic changes in DNA can result in cancer.
