EXPERIMENT 4: THE IMPORTANCE OF CELL CYCLE CONTROLSPurpose(What question is this experiment designed to answer?):Hypothesis(Based on what you’ve learned in the pre-lab materials, write and If/Then statement regarding the outcome of this experiment.):Claim(What are the results of your experiment?):Evidence(What data did you collect that supports your claim? Explain the meaning behind the data and the calculations.):Post-Lab Questions1.Record your hypothesis from Step 1 in the Procedure section here:24. Do the results from the web-search support your original hypothesis? Why or why not? 25. Suppose a person developed a mutation in a somatic cell which diminishes the performance of the body’s natural cell cycle control proteins. This mutation resulted in cancer but was effectively treated with a cocktail of cancer-fighting drugs. Is it possible for this person’s future children to inherit this cancer-causing mutation? Be specific whenyou explain why or why not.
26. Do cells which lack normal cell cycle control (cancerous cells) exhibit karyotypes that look physically different than cells with normal cell cycle control?
