Researchers identify target for cancer drugs

...new research is a protein called Akt, an important player in the regulation of cell division and survival. Abnormally high activation of Akt has long been implicated in a variety of cancers. If Akt travels to the cell membrane, it is switched on and promotes cell division, often contributing to tumor growth...

A protein in the eye may prevent immune response and protect eyes from disease

...ince the F4/80 protein was identified as a crucial player in the development of immune privilege, the Schepens' team postulated that the protein had an important role in immune regulation. In the current JEM study, the team investigated mice that did not produce F4/80. They found that the immune suppression...
