In battle for real estate, a disordered protein wins out

Research findings that first had scientists scratching their heads have turned out to be ‚quite revolutionary,‘ according to study leaders. The scientists found that in a competition between two apparently equivalent proteins, one protein wins out every time as it swoops in to claim a cellular binding target. This protein is of special interest to researchers because it can trigger cancer cells to kill themselves. In fact, the researchers now hope future therapeutics that mimic this protein may work as potential cancer drugs. (Mehr in: Cancer News — ScienceDaily)
