Substance in grapes prevents agglomeration of a mutant protein that leads to cancer June 27, 2018, Instituto Nacional de Ciência e Tecnologia de Biologia Estrutural e Bioimagem (INBEB) (1) Resveratrol inhibits wild-type and mutant p53C aggregation in vitro. (2) Mutations in p53 protein in cancer cells are directly associated with amyloid aggregation. (3) Resveratrol impairs the formation of p53 amyloid-aggregates in MDA-MB-231 and HCC-70 human breast cancer cells and reduces cell migration... continue reading >>
