Storyboard Text

  • It was a fine day in Cellsville and more importantly, it was Cellberts annual doctors appointment. He would go every so often if he felt ill or just to have a check up. This was something all cells did, not just Cellbert. 
  • You see Cellbert, you were once a proto-oncogene with only the potential to be cancerous, but now you formed into an oncogene.
  • Dr.Golgis did not have good news in the slightest. It seemed that Cellbert acquired a series of gene mutations from his parent cells. He indeed had the potential to be cancerous, in fact, he was cancer.
  • I hate to tell you this, but they are now inactive.
  • Well, what'll happen to my tumor suppressor genes?
  • Cellbert was now puzzled as he didn't even know how he had become an oncogene.
  • In my professional opinion, you becoming cancerous probably stemmed from a run-in with carcinogens; such as UV rays, cigarette smoke, and x-rays. 
  • Aww man! I was just in the sun without sunscreen, just got an x-ray without the special blanket, and just inhaled cigarette smoke...I'm a dead cell!
  • It is also plausible that you contracted a virus and that ate away at your immune system, providing for your proto-oncogenic behavior to turn oncogenic. That it ate away at your signal transduction pathway deforming your proteins.
  • Oh my!
  • Remember not to go through cell division and we will start treatments on your transcription factors next week!
  • Thanks, Dr.Golgis!
  • Cellbert went on to live his life. He tried his very best not to go through cell division and he then went into remission after targeting the chemo to the transcription factors and lived happily ever after in Cellsville!
