An international team of researchers has discovered a new anti-cancer protein. The protein, called LHPP, prevents the uncontrolled proliferation of cancer cells in the liver. The researchers led by Prof. Michael N. Hall from the Biozentrum,...

In eukaryotes, RNA interference-derived small RNAs (sRNAs) play a critical role in development, gene expression, and genome stability. Dicer proteins have an important role as well, as they produce small RNAs (sRNAs) from long double-stranded RNA (dsRNA) templates. The enzymes are best known for...
