Engineering researchers help unravel molecular control of hindering cell cycle

By Beth Miller May 26, 2016 Researchers, including Rohit Pappu from Washington University in St. Louis, studied the pP27Kip1 protein, whose job is to stop a cell from dividing or to slow the division. Genetic mutations in p27 and other proteins like it are major culprits in cancer.At busy intersections, traffic signals generally favor the road
