Project identifies molecules for tumor suppression

Scientists from the Cancer Research UK Manchester Institute at The University of Manchester say they have been working on finding new molecules that play a role in tumor suppression. "We have demonstrated that JNK and ATF2 have a role to play in tumor suppression. Additional research is now needed to determine what causes changes in the levels of these ATF2-dependent molecules in tumors," said Professor Nic Jones, leader of the Cell Regulation group and Director of the Manchester Cancer Research Centre, who led the study.
