The Genetic Gods: Evolution and Belief in Human Affairs

John Avise provides a evaluate of latest molecular biology that's really available to the 'lay' reader with a few previous publicity to the final sector of evolutionary-genetics. The discussions are slightly philosophically charged (i. e. they don't stay unavoidably technical) and comment on social, emotional, and theological concerns too.

Example text

Masson trichrome stain demonstrates red, longi- tudinally oriented parallel fibrils within the cytoplasm. Tumour cells are diffusely and strongly immunoreactive for vimentin, actin (smooth muscle or muscle-specific), desmin and h-caldesmon. There is generally no reactivity with keratin, CD34, CD117, S-100 protein or HMB-45 {1144,1395,2702}. The Ki-67 index is usually >15% {1144}. Electron microscopy Electron microscopy reveals variable features of smooth muscle cells, including myofilaments arranged in parallel arrays, dense bodies within the filaments, cell junctions, pinocytotic vesicles and basal lamina {1395,1529,1933}.

Stratified columnar epithelium with oncocytic features and small neutrophilic microabscesses are characteristic. Invasive carcinoma can be distinguished from inverted papilloma by the presence of the following features: cellular pleomorphism, atypical mitoses, keratin pearls, loss of basement membranes, and stromal invasion associated with an inflammatory-desmoplastic response. Prognosis and predictive factors Though histologically benign, they have an unlimited growth potential and, if neglected, can cause considerable morbidity or even death by extending into contiguous structures.

Malignant progression from neurofibroma in NF1 is related to alterations of genes controlling cell cycle regulation, including TP53 {1459} and CDKN2A (which encodes p16) {1361,1895}. Tumours of the nasal cavity and paranasal sinuses Genetic susceptibility MPNST of the sinonasal tract may be associated with NF1, typified by germline mutation of the NF1 tumour suppressor gene located on chromosome 17 {454}. Prognosis and predictive factors Surgery is the treatment of choice, although radiation and chemotherapy may have a palliative role.
