Cancer suppressor gene links metabolism with cellular aging

Researchers from the Perelman School of Medicine, University of Pennsylvania have found an important regulatory mechanism for the tumor suppressor protein p53.

This protein apparently makes pre cancerous cells die off, so has been the target of a great deal of research.

They found enzymes which could be useful for developing anticancer drugs, but also in dealing with cellular aging.
