A Breakthrough Enzyme For Cancer Treatment

St. Jude Children's Research Hospital has discovered that TAK1 functions as a "double agent" in the immune response, serving as an unexpected regulator of inflammation and cell death. The findings highlight TAK1 inhibition as a potential cancer treatment.

New Way for Mitochondrial Function During Stress

Scientists from Scripps Research Institute (TSRI) have revealed a new pathway in cells that promotes mitochondrial function during times of stress, a response that can guard against disease as people age. In response to stress, rather than churn out misshapen proteins, our cells activate protective pathways that take an even more dramatic response, shutting down protein production entirely. The study was published in the journal Cell.
