Splicing DNA-damage responses to tumour cell death.

The ability of a tumour cell to evade programmed cell death (apoptosis) is crucial in the development of cancer. The process of apoptosis is complex and involves the careful interplay of a host of signalling molecules. Cellular stresses, such as DNA-damage, can initiate apoptosis through multiple pathways, all of which eventually lead to eradication of… CONTINUE READING
