Researchers examine the link between KISS 1 and cancer
Moshmi Bhattacharya, an associate professor in the Departments of Physiology and Pharmacology, and Oncology, and Donna Cvetkovic, a graduate student working in her lab, were surprised to find high levels of kisspeptins in aggressive breast cancers. “We found kisspeptins could turn non-invasive cancer cells into invasive cells, and therefore could be playing a role in the metastasis of breast cancer.”KISS 1 is a metastasis-suppressor gene which helps to prevent the spread of cancers, including melanoma, pancreatic and ovarian cancers to name a few.
