Spread of Cancer Cells May be Slowed by Targeting of Protein, Penn State University Study

Published: Dec 19, 2012

The spread of cancer cells may be slowed by targeting the protein km23-1, according to researchers at Penn State College of Medicine. A motor protein that transports cargo within the cell, km23-1 is also involved in the movement or migration of cells. Migration is necessary for cancer to spread, so understanding this cell movement is important for development of better cancer treatments.
