Protein-blocking Molecule May Increase Risk of Prostate Cancer Spreading, Study Says
The small non-coding molecule miR-194 may promote the spread of prostate cancer by blocking the anticancer protein SOCS2, a study says. The finding provides new insight into the molecular mechanisms driving metastasis -- or the spread of -- prostate cancer. Gene expression is the translation of information encoded in a gene into protein or RNA structures that operate in a cell. The research, “MicroRNA-194 Promotes Prostate Cancer Metastasis By Inhibiting SOCS2,” was published in the journal Cancer Research. "Prostate cancers only kill men after they have spread or 'metastasized' from the prostate. The id
