Stop a Tumor, Save a Cell

Cancer fighter helps cells survive lean times

Mitch Leslie

Abstract: Tumor-suppressing proteins are supposed to be tough guys that execute faulty cells or squelch their reproduction. But according to a new study, one such protein nurtures some types of cells, fostering their recovery from starvation. The results bolster a recently discovered metabolic link between diabetes and cancer and could help researchers design new drugs to battle the diseases.
