Primate-specific Proteins Illuminate Cancer Immunity

Primate proteins evade immune surveillance in cancer cells, revealing new treatment possibilities

In the ongoing quest to decipher the intricate mechanisms of cancer progression and immune evasion, a groundbreaking study led by EPFL scientists has emerged. This study sheds light on a previously overlooked aspect: the role of primate-specific KRAB zinc finger proteins (KZFPs). These proteins, typically associated with genomic stability, play a pivotal role in shielding … Read more
