Found a way of dealing with the deadly cancer metastasis

Experts have discovered a breach in the proteins and mechanism that contribute to the appearance of colorectal cancer metastases.

At the University of Kentucky scientists have identified the mechanism of occurrence of metastatic colorectal cancer, and found a way to stop them. It is reported by MedicalXpress.

The researchers found two damaged NRP1 gene responsible for encoding a protein neuropilin-1 (NRP1). These genes are “dropped” some nucleotide fragments from an mRNA molecule.

Such errors lead to incorrect nucleotide sequences of mRNA and protein defects. In the case of NRP1 both “damage” to contribute to the development of intractable forms of cancer and metastasis of colorectal cancer.

In addition damaged protein NRP1 forms complexes with specific compounds and provides long-lasting signals that contribute to the migration, invasion and metastasis of colorectal cancer cells that are insensitive to known medications.

The results of the study will form the basis for creating methods of blocking NRP1 and therapy against metastasis.

Previously, scientists named the early symptom of pancreatic cancer. It was also reported that the actress Anastasia Zavorotnyuk left to live for a few days: the star the last stage of brain cancer. This is reported by the media, but the family of the stars information still has not commented.
