The Predisposition to Breast Cancer in the Ashkenazi Jewish Population Due to Mutations on BRCA1 and BRCA2 Breast cancer gene 1 (BRCA1) and breast cancer gene 2 (BRCA2) gene mutations were identified as tumor suppressor genes or anti-oncogenes. Tumor suppressor genes are recessive mutations. Recessive mutations must have damage to both gene pairs to cause cancer. The mutations on BRCA1 and BRCA2 occur due to a malfunction of the G1 checkpoint in the cell cycle. Low amounts of a protein cause the malfunction of the cell cycle. The mutation causes a loss of information on that gene. The loss of information from genes allows for the determination of the exact location of the mutation. The Ashkenazi Jewish population has a high rate of BRCA1 and BRCA2 mutations at three specific loci. Currently, scientists are looking for a reliable indicator for cancer by isolating the protein marker that controls the cell cycle. Thesis Advisor: Raymond W. RoseCORRADINA V. BALDACCHINO Library Investigation 10. The Use of Forensic Entomology in the Assessment of Postmortem Interval Involving Temperature-Dependent Rates of Larval Development Forensic entomology is the analysis of insects and other arthropods inhabiting a corpse. Its main focus is on the sequence of faunal infestation due to decomposition progression of the remains and rates of larval development attributed to the various stages of offspring maturation of the insect. At different stages of decomposition, insects are attracted to the odors liberated by certain products of tissue breakdown. Once insects become attracted to the body, they lay eggs which will hatch into larvae. These larvae feed on the decomposing soft tissues of the corpse. During this time, the larvae develop quickly and go through many changes in structural development. During development, there are certain identifiable anatomical structures associated with each stage. Likewise, there is a general
