Protein suppression stops leukaemia growth in mice

Leukaemia causing stem cells have been eliminated in mice by suppressing two proteins.
Leukaemia causing stem cells have been eliminated in mice by suppressing two proteins. Cancer stem cells are thought to be responsible for relapses in leukaemia. The findings… http://www.understandinganimalresearch.org.uk/news/research-medical-benefits/protein-suppression-stops-leukaemia-growth-in-mice/

Skin cancer protein identified in mice

Scientists have identified a protein that suppresses skin cancer in mice.
Scientists have identified a protein that suppresses skin cancer in mice. Researchers bred mice to lack a copy of the gene that makes the protein alpha-catenin. These mice… http://www.understandinganimalresearch.org.uk/news/research-medical-benefits/skin-cancer-protein-identified-in-mice/
