Cancer is a stem cell issue

...s. The Dutch researcher is optimistic that used in combination with chemotherapy, such compounds will also prevent cancer reigniting after treatment. We have to be very careful because [these compounds] will also regulate normal stem cell behaviour. It is a fine balance, he noted. EuroSTELLS is the European ...

The innovative combination of these two approaches implicates a previously unidentified region of chromosome 11 and neurexin 1, a member of a gene family believed to be important in contact and communication between neurons, among other regions and genes in the genome. The neu...

Cancer cells more likely to genetically mutate

...y have to target more than one oncogene so-called combination chemotherapy. Not all of the news is bad, though. Loeb believes this research may eventually help physicians determine the stage and malignancy of a tumor by testing the number of its mutations. The more mutations, the further along the tumor may ...

Protein sensor for fatty acid buildup in mitochondria

...arnitine shuttles them into the mitochondria. This combination of a fatty acid and carnitine, called acylcarnitine, liberates PanK2 from the bondage of CoA. Once free, PanK2 resumes its job of initiating the production of more CoA, which is needed for the breakdown of fatty acidsa process called beta-oxidation. ...

Gene elevating breast cancer risk also causes prostate cancer

Cancer is a complex and common disease caused by a combination of both genetic and environmental factors. An inherited predisposition seems to be involved in at least 510 per cent of all cases of breast cancer. The two major familial breast cancer susceptibility genes BRCA1 and BRCA2 only explain 20-30 per cent ...
