FLYWCH1 is a novel transcriptional repressor for the cancer-causing Beta-catenin

There is no doubt that cancer is a devastating disease. However, restraining the cancerous cells from spreading throughout the body (invasion) will make it easier to control and possibly cure cancer. β-catenin is one of the proteins

Invasive bumblebees become quickly the most important pollinators in their new habitats

Invasive species have been largely described as one of the main threats to global biodiversity. The European bumblebee Bombus terrestris was intentionally introduced in Chile in 1997 to be used as pollinator in greenhouse tomato crops because

An RNA degradative enzyme that stimulates breast cancer cells to move and invade

RNA degradative enzymes carry out key steps in regulating gene expression. They are broadly grouped into two groups; exonucleases, that degrade RNA from one end and endonucleases, which cut within the body of an RNA molecule. PMR1

Many factors determine prognosis in resected lung cancer. Is visceral pleural involvement one of them?

Prognosis after pulmonary resection for primary lung cancer is closely related to tumor stage, since stage predicts the risk recurrence. Lung cancer staging is based on the TNM system that evaluates tumor size and contiguous tissue infiltration
