ORNL Mice Helping Researchers Isolate, Identify Causes Of Cancer

aborators to trace the mouse gene in an effort to learn the cause of the human disease. Justice and colleagues identified the disease gene in mice and used the mouse gene to identify the human gene. This information has led to the discovery of the cause of clinical symptoms in humans.

Because of the genetic similarity between mice and humans, researchers hope to gain a better understanding of the development of certain human cancers, to earlier diagnoses and to better treatment strategies.

This research was funded by the National Cancer Institute and the American Cancer Society.

ORNL, one of DOE's multiprogram research facilities, is managed by Lockheed Martin Energy Research Corp.
