Now, a novel research to advance cancer therapy

A recent study has found that a protein discovered by a group of researchers in their lab prevents the growth and spread of breast cancer. The research was led by Suresh Alahari, Ph.D., the Fred Brazda Professor of Biochemistry and Molecular Biology at LSU Health New Orleans School of Medicine.The results of the study, which could have a lot of impact on cancer therapy, are published in the OnlineFirst section of the journal Cancer Research.Dr. Alahari discovered the protein Nischarin, which is involved in a number of biological processes that include regulation of breast cancer cell migration and movement.Even though his lab has shown that Nischarin functions as a tumour suppressor, research continues to uncover new information that may lead to better treatments.The current study saw the team investigate Nischarin s function in exosome release.Exosomes are nano-sized vesicles (fluid-filled sacs) that contain proteins, genetic and other material involved both in physiological and ...
