Early delivery can prevent cancer

...influence a gene called P53 that produces a tumour suppressor protein. The same is thought to happen in people. In young women, whose breast tissue is still developing, this appears to have life-long effects. The effect is most marked in women who give birth before they are 20, said Professor O'Malley. The rese...

Tumour marker for melanoma found

...2 is involved in one of the pathways of the tumour suppressor gene called p53, which plays a role in many other cancers. However, it is not clear why high levels are linked to a good outcome in melanoma. But its role as a molecular marker may well help doctors to target and refine therapies to the individual pa...

...m SV40 have a powerful effect in turning off tumor suppressor genes in humans. Gazdar and the other researchers said that the recent SV40 discoveries also could help lead to effective cancer treatment, by using SV40 as a target for therapies. ``A vaccine targeting SV40 in mesothelioma is now being developed,''...

Researchers Identify Sipa 1 Gene, Responsible For Cancer Metastasis

...gous to human 11q12-13, harbors a known metastasis suppressor gene Brms1. However, this gene has no obvious polymorphisms that influence metastasis. Authors used a multiple cross mapping strategy that uses the shared haplotypes in different inbred strains of mice to reduce the number of candidate genes. This ...

... phosphatase PP2A. PP2A acts otherwise as a tumour suppressor in the blast crisis, applying the brakes to growth signals stuck in the “on” position. When PP2A isn't working properly, cancer cells grow uncontrolled. Earlier studies by Perrotti showed forskolin could restore PP2A function. In the current study, ...
