Researchers Identify Familial Pancreatic Cancer Gene

Researchers at Harvard Medical School have sequenced the genomes of a family in which multiple members had pancreatic cancer and found a mutation in a gene linked to the RAS signaling pathway that controls cell growth and death. Researchers argue that the into how RABL3 impacts the signaling pathway could lead to novel targeted therapy.
