Cancers cells use a special technique to propagate; they delete their ‘programmed death’ gene through mutation, ‘forget’ to die when their lifetime is over, and continue to grow instead. A research team from Tokyo University of Science has developed a method through which a fungal compound capable of rearming the self-destruct gene in certain cancer cells can be artificially produced in marketable quantities, providing a potential cancer therapeutic strategy.
