Scientists shed light on how cells with an incorrect number of chromosomes lead to tumour development
Aneuploid cells—that is to say those with an abnormal number of chromosomes—are found in most human tumours.
A study conducted at IRB Barcelona on the fly Drosophila reveals how surviving aneuploid cells favour tumour development.
Scientists at IRB Barcelona publish the details of an old tissue transplant method for Drosophila melanogaster.
This technique allows the study of tumour growth and tissue regeneration
Scientists at IRB Barcelona have observed that, when deprived of food, flies that do not express p53 show poor management of energy store.
The study, published today in Cell Reports, further supports the involvement of this molecule—traditionally associated with tumour suppression—in metabolism.
The researchers provide new insights to study p53 function in metabolic diseases such as diabetes and obesity.
