“20 minutos” has published an article about palm oil, its effects on health and related dietary recommendations. The article includes a reference to the study by Salvador Aznar Benitah, ICREA researcher at IRB Barcelona, recently published in Nature, which identifies metastasis-initiating cells through a specific marker, the protein CD36. This protein, which is found in the membranes of tumour cells, is responsible for taking up fatty acids. CD36 activity and dependence on lipid (fat) metabolism distinguish metastasis-initiating cells from other tumour cells.
