When two proteins work together, this worsens the prognosis for lung cancer patients: their chances of survival are particularly poor in this case.

In malignant tumours, the cells usually proliferate quickly and uncontrollably. A research team from the Biocenter of Julius-Maximilians-Universität (JMU) Würzburg in Bavaria, Germany, has discovered that two important regulators of cell division can interact in this process. If this is the case, affected patients have particularly poor chances of survival. A special form of lung cancer was investigated.

The JMU team led by Professor Stefan Gaubatz and Dr. ...
