The scientists at the American Cancer Research Institute at Dana-Farber have discovered molecular targets in malignant tumor cells for two types of untreated cancers.
According to MedicalXpress, synovial sarcoma (a rare type of soft tissue cancer common in young people) and children under 2 years of age affect the brain, kidneys and other organs of the body.
The investigators have found that the development of synovial sarcoma and pediatric tumors is due to the regeneration of chromatin in the ncBAF compound, which plays an important role in chromatin packaging, a chromosome of DNA, RNA and proteins, which regulates the activity of a number of genes.
The researchers also discovered the presence of BRD9 and GLTSCR1 in the ncBAF compound, the unique subunits not found in similar compounds.
Inhibition of these units by the help of auxiliary compounds prevents the division and proliferation of malignant cells and thus slows the progression of the disease.
Scientists hope that their findings will help to develop new methods for treating synovial sarcoma and pediatric tumors.
