Researcher reveals protein once thought to be expressed only in brain may cause certain thyroid cancers

from Bio News Texas

Researchers at the University of Texas Southwestern Medical Center have discovered that a protein once thought to be expressed in the brain only may play an important role in a deadly form of thyroid cancer and other cancers. This result may provide researchers with a new target to stop the progression of these cancers. Researchers found that over-activation of a certain protein in hormone-secreting cells helps fuel medullary thyroid cancer cells in mice as well as human cells. The over-active protein makes a potential target for inhibiting cancer cell growth. more
