Scientists discover kill code in all cells that can be triggered to destroy cancer

October 29, 2018

Via: The Medical News

Once certain cellular machinery detects that a cell is changing into cancer, it triggers the kill code to destroy the mutating cell. The code is found in large protein-coding ribonucleic acids (RNAs) and in small microRNAs, which are thought to […]
