Evidence builds for potential new cancer drug target
... gene in a mouse model. New technology allowed the scientists
to delete c-myb from one specific type of tissue in the model rather than from the entire organism. "We removed the c-myb gene from T cells and in the process discovered that c-myb is required for white blood cell formation," said Reddy. In other re...
