Details of cellular process which stops cancer developing revealed

Posted by in categories: biotech/medical, life extension

Researchers have for the first time characterised the molecular mechanism of the early stages of programmed cell death or apoptosis, a process which plays a crucial role in the prevention of cancer.

The study, published today (2 June) in Science Advances, was led by Dr Luke Clifton at the Science and Technology Facilities Council (STFC) ISIS Neutron and Muon Source (ISIS) in Oxfordshire. They worked alongside partners at the University of Umea and European Spallation Source in Sweden.

It is the most recent in a series of research collaborations by this team, investigating the cellular proteins responsible for apoptosis.
