A common cause of cancer is when cells are altered or mutated and your body’s cancer suppressor genes are turned off. And now scientists from University of Nottingham have a way on how to reactivate the cancer suppressor genes in human body by the use of proteins extracted from the eggs of axolotl salamander.
If you do not know what axolotl salamander is about, it’s the kind of animal shown in the picture, which is well known for its ability to regenerate most of its body parts. By extracting the proteins from the animal, and use on human body, it’ll help to reactivate the cancer suppressor genes, thus help fight cancer. The discovery could form a powerful new technology platform for the treatment of a variety of cancers.
