Cancer can be treated by blocking central conductor of cell division, study finds

Posted by in category: biotech/medical

Researchers at NCMM have demonstrated the mechanisms behind the activation of Aurora B, a central conductor of cell division. Their findings, now published in eLife, can lay the foundations for developing new cancer drugs.

Cell division is a fundamental process for all living things, where one cell divides into two cells. It allows for a human being to grow from a single fertilized egg cell, for wounds to heal, and for dead cells within your body to be replenished with new cells.
