Gene thought to assist chemo may help cancer thrive

...l can't be repaired, p53 starts a process known as apoptosis that kills the cell. It's p53's role as one of the genes involved in initiating cell death that has led cancer researchers to long believe that the gene is essential to successful chemotherapy. The idea is that p53 assists in killing the cancerous ce...

Despite the fact that various models of Nod1 activation have been described, little has been known about other proteins that might affect the protein’s activation. In contrast, a number of additional proteins have been linke...

Hope for a more effective and less toxic cancer drug

... healthy process called programmed cell death - or apoptosis - to ensure that unwanted cells die on cue. If this process fails, then the damaged cells live on and multiply indefinitely and uncontrollably. This uncontrolled multiplication of rogue cells can lead to cancer.
