A study from Watson School of Biological Sciences shows that Mutant p53 Drives Pancreatic Cancer Metastasis through Cell-Autonomous PDGF Receptor β (Pdgfrβ) Signaling. This study was published in the April 10, 2014 Cell by Prof. Dr Scott Lowe, Watson School of Biological Sciences, CSHL, New York; Prof. Dr Carol Prives, Department of Biological Sciences, Columbia University, New York; and others.
On the foundation of this interesting finding, Dr L Boominathan, Director-cum-chief Scientist of GBMD, reports here that: Insight into the treatment of Metastatic Pancreatic/intestine/ovarian Cancer: C/EBPzeta (CHOP/Gadd153) suppresses the expression of PDGF Receptor β (Pdgfrβ) via up regulation of its target gene. Given that tumor suppressor p53 is mutated in about 50% of different human cancers, this study suggests, for the first time, a therapeutic strategy as to how mutant p53 over expressing human cancers can be cured.
