Oncogene mutation hijacks splicing process to promote growth and survival

An international team of researchers — led by principal investigator Paul S. Mischel, M.D., a member of the Ludwig Institute for Cancer Research and professor in the Department of Pathology at the University of California, San Diego School of Medicine — has found that a singular gene mutation helps brain cancer cells to not just survive, but grow tumors rapidly by altering the splicing of genes that control cellular metabolism.
