Cancer: 'Primitive' gene discovered
Date:2/11/2010

nalyze biological and biochemical functions of the myc gene in detail and draw conclusions for the human organism", adds Klaus Bister. The findings of the researchers from Innsbruck are particularly interesting because they identified the oncogene in the stem cell system of Hydra. "Our experiments are bound to uncover interesting findings about stem cells", says Prof. Bister. The stem cells in the fresh water polyp strongly indicate its regenerative ability the polyp completely regenerates within five days and, thus, it could theoretically age ad infinitum.

Success for research focus

Scientists from the Institute of Biochemistry, Institute of Zoology and the Institute of Organic Chemistry of the University of Innsbruck cooperated in this research work, which is a research focus of the University's Centre for Molecular Biosciences (CMBI). "The idea to look for the oncogene in this early fresh water polyp was developed at a meeting we all attended", explains Klaus Bister, one of the founders and first head of the CMBI. "This joint project directly results from collaboration within the research focus of the University of Innsbruck." The results have been published at the online edition of the renowned American journal Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences (PNAS). The researchers are supported by the Austrian Science Funds (FWF).
