      The cell cycle has many regulatory mechanisms, the alteration of one of these could cause havoc, such as cancer. The protein of Retinoblastoma (RB) is very important in the interface before beginning mitosis. Would it be believed that the RB protein located on chromosome 13 band q14 is more likely that have a mutation, or is it more likely to be denatured by the diverse human papillomavirus (HPV) group? So in any of the two cases which part of the cycle is affect?

      It is true that diseases are identified through signs and symptoms. A sign is regarded as an objective manifestation of the disease which can be determined or measured by a physician whereas a symptom is seen as a subjective evidence of the disease that is reported by the patient. A symptom can be defined as a departure from normal feeling or function that is discovered by the patient which can reflect or indicate the presence of an abnormal state or a disease. Each disease is found to have a constellation of signs and symptoms which are unique to itself, however individual signs for example like fever, may be present in a number of diseases. The physician relies on various information such as past medical history, any recent exposure to disease, physical signs and results obtained from the appropriate laboratory tests in order to diagnose the disease accurately.

      Some examples of laboratory tests include:
