+ - Low Oxygen Cellular Protein Synthesis Mechanism Discovered->

Submitted by _prime
_prime (181525) writes "Until recently the mechanism by which cells make proteins in low-oxygen environments has been unknown. As published in Nature this week, the discovery of the mechanism by an Ottawa-based team of researchers potentially means it could be "very easy to kill cancer cells" without harming normal cells because cancer cells leverage the same low-oxygen protein synthesis mechanism even in the presence of normal oxygen levels."

If it happens once, it's a bug. If it happens twice, it's a feature. If it happens more than twice, it's a design philosophy.
