Researcher uncovers details of how cancer spreads

...rchers used a protein called v-Src derived from an oncogenic virus, which has the ability to transform a normal cell into one with many features resembling those found in cancer cells. While this virus has not been found in humans, it does lead to tumor growth in chickens and created cancerous cells in the cul...

Gene first linked to rare disease may trigger skin cancer, other tumors

...some forms of leukemia. That modification bars the oncogenic protein's entry into the cell nucleus, the central command center and storehouse for DNA, where it would otherwise drive the uncontrolled increase in cell numbers characteristic of tumor growth. The researchers first showed that mice lacking CYLD we...

Higher risk for cervical cancer seen among women infected with multiple HPV types

... 58, which the new study discovered to be far more oncogenic than others when found in co-infections with other HPV types.
