Role of Dietary Factors in the Regulation of Nuclear Oncogenes (1993)

Title:

Role of Dietary Factors in the Regulation of Nuclear Oncogenes

Key words:

protooncogenes, protein deprivation, c-myc 1, c-myc 2

Research Institution:

Vanderbilt University

Location:

Tennessee

Researcher:

Stephen R Hann

Project Description:

Various protooncogenes, precursor cancer genes, play an important role in the normal growth of cells. Activation of these cells to oncogenes is thought to be modulated through nutritional factors such as protein deprivation. Dr. Hann looked at the interrelationship between two proteins, the c-myc 1 and c-myc 2, and how nutritional factors play a role in their transformation.
