Scientists study use of abundant enzyme in tumor cells to monitor cancer treatment

Publicado em 12 janeiro 2021
The abundant presence of an enzyme known as low molecular weight protein tyrosine phosphatase (LMWPTP) in tumor cells has long been considered an indicator of cancer aggressiveness and metastatic potential. It is also known to perform important functions in cells under normal conditions, participating both in the proliferation process and in the regulation of intracellular systems. Research continues on its role in the progression of cancer. In Brazil, a group of researchers from the Bioassay [...]
