Common mode of action likely in gene-activation molecules linked to cancers

Scientists have identified the structure of an important gene-activation molecule linked to cancers. Comparing the structures of several molecules with related function but dissimilar composition, they found unanticipated structural similarities. The findings suggest a common mechanism of action and raise the possibility of developing anti-cancer drugs based on structural insights.
