Scientists halt breast cancer spread

Scientists halt breast cancer spread   Scientists have discovered that an amino acid called asparagine is essential for breast cancer spread, and by restricting it, cancer cells stopped invading other parts of the body in mice, according to new research. Citation: Asparagine bioavailability governs metastasis in a model of breast cancer. Nature, 2018; DOI: 10.1038/nature25465…

Sugar helps cancer cells regulate voltage

Sugar helps cancer cells regulate voltage Sugar helps cancer cells regulate voltage Researchers in an attempt to understand why Cancers will hold onto sugar yet not use it as fuel discovered that Cancer Cells use sugar as a sort of voltage regulator. 1. Ca2 -dependent demethylation of phosphatase PP2Ac promotes glucose deprivation–induced cell death independently…
