oncogenes

[on-kuh-jeenz] mutated (changed) forms of genes that cause cells to grow, divide to make new cells, or stay alive longer than they should. Oncogenes are related to normal genes called proto-oncogenes that control normal cell growth. But oncogenes have undergone changes that activated them, which can result in cells growing out of control and becoming cancerous. See also genes, proto-oncogenes, tumors. Compare to tumor suppressor genes.
