Cancer resistance in the blind mole rat is mediated by concerted necrotic cell death mechanism
TLDR
Cancer resistance of blind mole rats Spalax is suggested to be conferred by massive necrotic response to overproliferation mediated by p53 and Rb pathways, and triggered by the release of IFN-β.
Hypersensitivity to contact inhibition provides a clue to cancer resistance of naked mole-rat
TLDR
It is proposed that the additional layer of protection conferred by two-tiered contact inhibition contributes to the remarkable tumor resistance of the naked mole-rat.
