Genes that slows cell division

Weizmann Institute Scientists Discover: A Group of Genes that Slows Cell Division and Prevents Cancer

(l-r) Sharon Reef and Prof. Adi Kimchi. One gene, two methods
One gene encodes two versions of a protein -- each initiates a different cellular suicide program
(l) Mapping the concentration of a contrast material (simulating a drug) inside the tumor. (r) A mathematical interpreation that "translates" the concentration data into areas of different pressure inside the tumor. the lower the pressure, the greater the concentration.
A new diagnostic method can tell whether chemotherapy drugs will get to the tumor
