Emanuele, PhD, and colleagues have identified a key activator that can turn on FoxM1, a protein that drives expression of genes that help cells replicate and divide, a finding they published in the journal Molecular and Cellular Biology. They also discovered, paradoxically, that the activator for FoxM1 is also responsible for turning this protein off.

Finding genetic variations common in black women could improve breast cancer outcomes, reduce recurrence

UNC Lineberger researchers Charles M. Perou, PhD, Katherine Hoadley, PhD, and Melissa Troester, PhD, co-authored a large, multi-institutional study designed to understand a gap in mortality for black and white women with breast cancer by beginning to unravel the germline genetic variations and tumor biological differences. This is the first “ancestry-based comprehensive analysis of multiple platforms of genomic and proteomic data of its kind,” the authors note.
