Novel genes identified that help suppress prostate and other cancers

New genes which help prevent prostate, skin and breast cancer development in mice have been discovered by researchers at the Wellcome Trust Sanger Institute and their collaborators. The study identified genes that cooperate with the well-known tumor suppressor gene PTEN, and showed their relevance in human prostate tumors.Reported today in Nature Genetics, this research reveals new pathways involved in cancer development. These are possible drug targets for cancers with a faulty PTEN gene. …read more
