Putting Brakes on Cell Growth Effectively Slows Down Cancer: Study

All cells go through the "cell cycle," a series of events that culminate in orderly cell growth and division. In cancer, the cell cycle is out of whack; cells divide uncontrollably and invade surrounding tissues. By removing a specific protein from cells, researchers were able to slow the cell cycle. The findings were made in kidney and cervical cancer cells and are a long way from being applied in people. But, the study suggests that targeting this protein could inhibit fast-growing cancer cells and be the basis of a treatment option in the future. CREDIT: University of Rochester Medical Center

Generally all cells go through the “cell cycle” and culminate in orderly cell growth and division but in cancer, the cell cycle is out ...
