UCSF-led study offers insight into cancer development, resistance to therapy: finding focuses on Ras oncogene
(click link for original article)

UCSF-led scientists have determined that under certain conditions the Ras oncogene, a key culprit in many cancers, suppresses the function of the p53 tumor-suppressor gene, offering an important insight into the development of some cancers, and an explanation for why some cancers are resistant to radiation therapy.
