Two therapeutic targets identified for deadly lung cancer

The vast majority of deadly lung cancer cases (85 percent) are termed non-small-cell lung carcinomas (NSCLCs), which often contain a mutated gene called LKB1. Salk Institute researchers have now discovered precisely why inactive ...

New genetic findings explain how embryos form arms and legs

The current understanding of limb and lung development in humans does not capture the full picture of the process, according to research published in Nature last week. This paper describes the importance of novel genes for ...

Prototype drug uses novel mechanism to treat lung cancers

Cells are constantly turning proteins on and off via molecular switches—phosphate molecules—that have become common drug targets. in a new study, lung cancer tumors were prevented in mice by a novel small molecule that ...
