Supercomputers Reveal How Cell Membranes Keep Cancer-Causing Proteins Turned Off

LW Newsfeed

 

Two biophysicists from Case Western Reserve University School of Medicine have used supercomputers to show how cell membranes control the shape, and consequently the function, of a major cancer-causing protein.

The protein, a small enzyme called K-Ras, is attached to cell membranes where it senses signals that originate outside the cell. Read more . . .
