Study shows naturally occurring proteins protect against rapid tumor growth
...iogenesis inhibitor molecules were responsible for reining
in tumor growth, Kalluri and his colleagues studied the proteins tumstatin, endostatin and thrombospondin-1, natural inhibitors of angiogenesis found in blood, urine and tissues throughout the body. The authors created mice genetically deleted in eac...
Weizmann Institute scientists discover a molecular security mechanism for keeping mutations in check
... by Science, is well known for its central role in reining
in cancer processes in the cell. In this case, the proteins seem to act as supervisors, taming the careless enzymes and keeping them in careful check. The scientists research showed that if the functioning of p53 or its relative, p21, is harmed, the ...
