"Bone mass is essentially the product of a balancing act between cells that form new bone and other cells that digest old bone. Osteoporosis results from an imbalance ...

Cell division study aids cancer drug search

... controls cell growth and division. Their research identifies a complex of proteins* which activate E2F, thus initiating celldivision. But if these control proteins are faulty and E2F is over-activated, excessivecell division takes place. This can lead to cancer. "This is an important breakthrough" says Profe...
