Researchers from Columbia University Medical Centre's Herbert Irving Comprehensive Cancer Centre have identified a protein that activates brain stem cells to make new neurones - but that may be hijacked later in life to cause brain cancer in humans. The protein called Huwe1 normally functions to eliminate other unnecessary proteins and was found to act as a tumour suppressor in brain cancer...
