Mitogenic stimuli cause the sequestration of p27 from its complex with cyclin-dependent kinase-2 (cdk2) and cyclin E (cycE) into a complex with cyclin D (cycD) and cyclin-dependent kinase-4 (cdk4). This activates both cyclin-dependent kinases to phosphorylate Rb, resulting in the dissociation of E2F, which activates expression of S-phase genes. 34 SECTION I. MOLECULAR AND EPIDEMIOLOGIC ISSUES synthesis), G2, and M (mitosis), in which cells duplicate their chromosomes and divide in two. Progression through this cycle is promoted by cyclin-dependent kinases (CDKs), which are positively regulated by cyclins and negatively regulated by CDK inhibitors.

MOLECULAR AND EPIDEMIOLOGIC ISSUES D apparently peaks with CIS, which implies that most of the genetic steps in the tumor’s development occur before invasion. On the other hand, although CIS differs tremendously from normal breast epithelial cells, CIS apparently differs little from invasive breast cancer. What are the genetic changes associated with invasive and metastatic breast cancer? Little is known about what genetically distinguishes CIS from invasive breast cancer. One clue is that loss of PTEN expression appears to occur in carcinomas and is rarely seen in CIS.
