Researchers have identified the process behind cancer cell energy production, providing a drug target for treatments to inhibit growth.

A novel discovery has identified the energy production mechanism of cancerous cells that drives the growth of the nucleolus and causes tumors to multiply rapidly. The team, led in-part by UC's Atsuo Sasaki, PhD, associate professor in the Division of Hematology Oncology in the Department of Internal Medicine, believes that their findings could lead to the development of anticancer treatments that cut the energy supply to the nucleolus.
