Gene responsible for brain tumour radiation resistance identified

American molecular biologists have found that high activity of the ZMYND8 gene protects many forms of glioma – malignant brain tumours – from being destroyed by radiotherapy. Suppression of this gene made the culture of tumour bodies vulnerable to radiation – as reported in the press service of the University of Michigan, TASS reports Photo: University Professor Pedro R. Lowenstein noted that increased activity of the ZMYND8 gene protects glioma cells with a mutation in the ...
