Hyperactive Form of IRAK4 Protein Fuels Cancerous Cells

This image shows leukemia cells that scientists studied to identify potential treatment targets for a very aggressive form of the blood cancer, acute myeloid leukemia (AML). Researchers report in Nature Cell Biology they found a hyperactive form of a protein called IRAK4 that sends cells on a cancer-causing frenzy, which may hold a key to treating a subset of people with the disease.
