Breast cancer spread may be reduced by silencing a gene

from Medical News Today

Myoferlin, a protein only recently linked to cancer, may help breast cancer cells transform so they can escape tumors and migrate to new sites. When researchers implanted mice with breast cancer cells that couldn't make the protein because its gene was switched off, the cells did not transform into the type that migrates. Researchers at The Ohio State University in Columbus, Ohio, had already shown this was happening in cell cultures. Now in a study published in the journal PLOS ONE, they describe how they got similar results in mice. more
