Researchers discover biological pathway that plays vital role in tumor development

An international team led by researchers from the Technion-Israel Institute of Technology’s Rappaport Faculty of Medicine and the Technion Integrated Cancer Center (TICC) has discovered a biological pathway that plays an important role in tumor development. Published in Cell Reports, the findings could lead to cancer-fighting drugs that work by shortening the half-life of select cancer-promoting proteins known as oncoproteins.
