Jessica Cardin, PhDProtein degradation is a main component of the body to enable proper function and tissue maintenance. Certain types of cancer have demonstrated to have an enhanced ability to degrade malformed proteins through intracellular systems. The ability to break these proteins down has the potential to protect cancerous cells and allow them to proliferate. Specific degradation pathways have exhibited the capacity to alter the cell cycle, leading to tumors to increase in aggressiveness ...
