The research of Tor Erik Rusten, PI in CanCell, and his coworkers in the Tumor-Host Biology research group at the Department of Molecular Cell Biology at the Institute for Cancer Research has recently been presented in an article (in Norwegian) entitled "Double agent in the body's cells makes tumors grow". Here it is explained how tumor cells lose orientation and grow uncontrollably when the "double agent" protein LKB1 leads the cells in the wrong direction under certain conditions.
