Journal of Biological Chemistry: Paper of the Week

New polysaccharide may help combat multidrug resistance in cancer. ‘In a recent study published in the Journal of Biological Chemistry, scientists report that a molecule previously thought to play a purely structural and inert role in cells is actually involved in multidrug resistance in cancer. Using antagonists for this molecule, the researchers were able to sensitize drug resistant breast cancer cells to chemotherapeutic drug treatment.’
