Breast Gene may Help Fight Cancer

 

Scientists from the Institute of Cancer Research have discovered a gene that plays a part in the development of the breast that could help in the fight against cancer. The gene has been names Scaramanga, after a three-nippled James Bond villain.

However researchers say they will need more time to find the exact link between cancer and the Scaramanga gene. The discovery was written up in the Genes and Development journal and the team said Scaramanga plays a role in early-stage breast cancer.

Lead author Alan Ashworth said: "By learning more about this gene and the protein it produces, it will allow us to determine how normal breast development is initiated and examine how this is connected with breast cancer."
