Experiments explain the events behind molecular ‘bomb’ seen in cancer cells

Experiments explain the events behind molecular ‘bomb’ seen in cancer cellsSometimes, in cancer cells, a part of a chromosome looks like it has been pulverized, then put back together incorrectly, leading to multiple mutations. New research from The Rockefeller University describes the cellular events leading to this molecular explosion, which serves as a precursor to cancer. More »

DNA strands often “wiggle” as part of genetic repair

DNA strands often “wiggle” as part of genetic repairNew research indicates that every time a double-stranded break occurs in DNA strands, the damaged ends move about during repair. Scientists believe a better understanding of this mysterious mechanism could improve the use of cancer treatments, some of which manipulate DNA repair in malignant cells. More »
