Discovered oncogenic mechanisms caused by TLX1 overexpression in leukaemia
The journal Nature Medicine has published a study that described for the first time oncogenic mechanisms caused by alterations in the gene TLX1 in T cell progenitors in acute lymphoblastic leukaemia. Specifically, researchers have found chromosomal abnormalities in mitosis control mechanisms.

Cancer cells sequester and inactivate tumour molecules within their own core
All human cells have a central core where the DNA (our genetic material) is, an aqueous medium (cytoplasm) where the proteins are produced and metabolic processes take place, and a peripheral layer around the cell that gives shape (plasma membrane).
