This shows DNAAn oncogene believed to be responsible for glioblastoma brain cancer has been identified. AVIL, a gene that normally helps cells to maintain their shape and size, can shift into overdrive, causing cancer cells to form and spread. Blocking the gene's activity completely destroyed glioblastoma cancer cells in mouse models, but did not have any effect on healthy cells. The findings provide potential new treatment avenues for the deadly brain cancer.
