A study led by Marcos Malumbres, head of CNIO's Cell Division & Cancer Group, identifies a new molecular mechanism that regulates genome stability and cell proliferation Cell division is an essential process for the development of an organism. This process, however, can cause tumor growth when it stops working properly. Tumor cells accumulate alterations in their genetic material, and this makes them divide in an uncontrolled fashion, thus encouraging growth of the tumor. Over the past...

Understanding how genes act in specific tissues is critical to our ability to combat many human diseases, from heart disease to kidney failure to cancer.  Yet isolating individual cell types for study is impossible for most human tissues. A new method developed by researchers at Princeton University and the University of Michigan called “in silico nano-dissection” uses computers rather than scalpels to separate and identify genes from specific cell types, enabling the systematic study...
