Scientists confirm key targets of new anti-cancer drug candidates

from Phys.Org

Ribosomes, ancient molecular machines that produce proteins in cells, are required for cell growth in all organisms, accomplishing strikingly complex tasks with apparent ease. But defects in the assembly process and its regulation can lead to serious biological problems, including cancer. Now, in a study published in the March 16 issue of The Journal of Cell Biology, scientists have confirmed the ribosome assembly process as a potentially fertile new target for anti-cancer drugs by detailing the essential function of a key component in the assembly process. more
