The bitter-sweet truth: eIF4E sugar coats cancer cells… ready to metastasize?

The team of Professor Katherine Borden of IRIC, in collaboration with researchers from the Segal Cancer Centre of the Montréal Jewish General Hospital and the Cleveland Clinic, Ohio, USA, published a study in the scientific journal eLife describing how the eIF4E protein can alter the surface of cells to promote cancer development. This protein, overabundant […]

The dancing enzymes that trigger cell division

The group headed by Vincent Archambault at IRIC has made an important discovery about cell division that has just been published in the prestigious journal Nature Communications. Cell division is a fascinating process. It is controlled by molecular mechanisms involving proteins that have been largely conserved between species through evolution. The Archambault lab uses the […]
