It’s easy to see how a missing gene could cause a problem, but extra copies can, too. Think of it like having too many people in a small space, trying to do the same job.
Several of my aunts died of breast cancer, so I was very worried when I was diagnosed with breast cancer at age 42. Hours after being extracted from Site Hotel Bravo, Task Force 141 has been disavowed and a dying Soap has been extracted to a Russian loyalist holdout in India. Makarov, however, is aware that 141 is in the city, and, after letting Yuri know he shouldn’t have come after them, activates bomb charges intended to kill Soap and Yuri both. Soap saves Yuri’s life by pushing him out of the window at the last moment, and is then jettisoned himself from a very high elevation, at which point Soap’s previous knife wound is reopened.
After battling through a massive battalion of armed military contractors Soap attempts to kill Shepherd with his combat knife, but Shepherd manages to stab him in the chest. With Shepherd distracted by a hand to hand duel with Price, and with what little strength he had left, Soap pulled the knife from his chest and threw it, directly hitting Shepherd in his eye and killing him instantly.
During an attempted extraction, Soap dies from massive blood loss moments after informing Price that Makarov knows Yuri. Soap is later mentioned by Price when the latter calls MacMillan to let him know that Soap has died and pleads for help in finding Makarov’s location. He is mentioned one final time at the beginning of the last mission of the game by Price, who the player takes control of, when he and Yuri suit up in EOD armor, says “This is for Soap.” He appears on the mission “Cliffhanger” as an NPC, assisting the player’s character, Gary “Roach” Sanderson. In the final three missions of the game, he and Price discover that their commanding officer, Lt. General Shepherd had double-crossed them, but are unable to warn their team in time and they are subsequently killed.
Genes are stored inchromosomes, big groups of genes that sit in the middle of almost all your body’s cells. Sometimes a chromosome gets broken, and an extra piece can end up in one cell . This is similar to having an extra or missing copy of a gene, but it happens with big groups of genes. This type of change can underlying cause cause problems with growth, development, and function of your body systems. In some cases, people are born with one, three, or more copies of a particular gene.
