Taking Aim With Nanoparticle PEBBLEs
...t reactive oxygen species into it, setting off "an avalanche
of damage," said Kopelman. By staying outside the cell, PEBBLEs avoid a problem that thwarts many chemotherapy drugs. "The really bad cancer cells get immune to chemotherapy drugs ?they pump the drugs back out," Kopelman said. Cancer cells can't do ...

UT Southwestern researchers discover master switch in cell death
...al Cell. The life and death of cells is a complex avalanche
of reactions, controlled by a few molecules that sit atop a biochemical “pyramid.?/p> The newly discovered enzyme, which the researchers have named Mule, destroys a key molecule at the top of the pyramid, thus leading to the cascading disintegrat...
