US scientists’ latest research works have finally disclosed the hidden mechanism upon which the protein called Myc actually works.
From two of their latest researches, scientists have concluded that the disease is fuelled by the Myc protein that is present in high levels inside cancer cells and plays a vital role in triggering them to override their in-built self-destruct mechanisms.
According to the findings of the experts, it was previously thought that the proteins switch on the particular target genes to increase the risks of disease but the latest findings have confirmed that the protein’s target is no particular cells rather they indiscriminately boost the activity of all those genes that are already active in the cells.
Above are the results of the efforts of the researchers from the Whitehead Institute and the National Institutes of Health. With these findings, a wider range of effects linking to the Myc protein has been revealed and so hopes of the experts have gone higher to get some new and effective ways to treat cancer soon, with the altering of this amplification effect.
Dr. Victoria Cowling, a Cancer Research UK-funded expert on Myc from the University of Dundee, said: "Myc increases the rate at which cells grow and divide, and when Myc levels increase it contributes to the development of almost all human tumour types”.
