Splicing Factor at Fault in Triple Negative Breast Cancer
News   Nov 27, 2019

A research team have investigated whether splicing factors could be responsible for the way some breast cancers grow and spread. If a splicing factor was giving the cell the wrong instructions, it could chave the cell;s behavior, causing it to grow out of control or metastasize. They looked at cells from breast cancers, and found that only a few splicing factors seemed connected to the cell’s cancerous behavior.
