Scientists uncover mechanism cells use to deactivate a signal that’s hyperactive in cancer

University of North Carolina Lineberger Comprehensive Cancer Center researchers and collaborators have discovered how a cellular signal that’s abnormally hyperactive in cancer can be deactivated. In the journal Cell Reports, UNC Lineberger’s M. Ben Major, PhD, and colleagues published a paper on how the WNT signaling pathway is regulated. WNT proteins increase tumor onset, growth …
