The researchers used genetically engineered mice with labeled immature, or progenitor, cells to trace specific cell lineages through the process of renegade
bone formation, which is induced by skeleton-stimulating molecules called bone morphogenetic proteins (BMPs). The study has important implications for...
Gene Plays 'Jekyll-and-Hyde' Role in Deadly Brain Cancer
...g these tumors.
But this new study found that STAT3 is actually a tumor-suppressor gene in other types of glioblastoma, meaning that the gene keeps renegade
cancer cells in check.
So, depending on a person's genetic makeup, STAT3 can play completely different roles in glioblastoma, the researchers said....
Gene plays 'Jekyll and Hyde' in brain cancer
...oncogene in certain types of glioblastoma, in others it becomes whats called a tumor suppressor gene, a type of gene often responsible for keeping the renegade
cancer cells in check.
In other words, the same gene in the same cancer can play a completely different role from one person to the next, dependin...
Anti-Cancer Drug Shows Early Promise in Pulmonary Hypertension
...ypertension, those that line the blood vessels leading to the lungs – release signals that stimulate the growth of small new blood vessels to feed the renegade

...that a tiny piece of genetic code apparently goes where no bit of it has gone before, and it gets there under its own internal code.
A report on the renegade
