Plant gene related to cancer treatment may foster new oncology drugs

Purdue University News Release, November 22, 2005
Two proteins involved in the process that controls plant growth may help explain why human cells reject chemotherapy drugs. Purdue plannt biologist Angus Murphy is corresponding author of the study published in the November issue of Plant Cell. He also is corresponding author of a related article published in October's Plant Journal. "Results of this research will give us a better idea of the functioning of the multi-drug resistance process in which human cancer cells reject anticancer treatments," Murphy said.
