Compound in Broccoli May Halt Cancer Progression by Modulating Damaging Class of RNAs, Study Suggests
Eating broccoli and other cruciferous vegetables can lower a man's risk of developing prostate cancer, thanks to a phenotype linked to the highly enriched levels of sulforaphane in these vegetables. Now, scientists at Oregon State University (OSU) suggest that sulforaphane exerts its effects by targeting damaging levels of long non-coding RNAs (lncRNAs). Their study, “Long noncoding RNAs and sulforaphane: a target for chemoprevention and suppression of prostate cancer,” appeared in
