3D Molecular Map Helps Researchers Pinpoint Novel Cancer Treatments

Scientists have solved the 3-D structure of molecular scaffold SgK223, which is known to play a critical role in the development and spread of some aggressive cancers. Armed with the map, the research team is looking at ways of targeting parts of the scaffold molecule critical for its function. They hope the research will lead to novel strategies to target cancer. The research was the result of a long-standing collaboration between researchers Dr Onisha Patel and Dr Isabelle Lucet from the Walter and Eliza Hall Institute in Melbourne, Australia, and Monash University's Biomedicine Research Institute researcher Professor Roger Daly.
