Scientists reveal 3D structure of crucial molecule involved in mixing and matching genetic information within cells


Scientists have revealed close-up details of a vital molecule involved in the mix and match of genetic information within cells -- opening up the potential to target proteins of this family to combat cancer's diversity and evolution.

A team at The Institute of Cancer Research, London, has discovered the three-dimensional structure and function of this 'mix n match' protein, which helps control a process linked to cancer's progression and drug resistance.

The researchers believe the study opens up a potentially exciting new way to tackle drug-resistant cancers and will be exploring the possibility further within the pioneering £75 million ...
