Columbia research lifts major hurdle to gene therapy for cancer

...e virus's selectivity for cancer cells is based on two moleculescalled PEA-3 and AP-1 that, the researchers found, are usually abundantinside cancer cells. Both of the molecules flip a switch (called PEG)that turns on the production of a cancer-inhibiting protein uniquely intumor cells.The researchers sa...
