Visualizing Protein Scissors inside Tumors

Visualizing Protein Scissors inside Tumors

Enzymes perform a range of key functions for the human body. As such, inside our cells, and inside the tiniest of organelles, proteins called cathepsins assist healthy cells with protein breakdown. However, in the presence of cancer cells spreading throughout the surrounding tissue, these enzymes can quickly turn on us, helping to promote tumor growth. Now, for the first time ever, scientists at the HZDR have developed a radiotracer they are using to track cathepsins on the surfaces of cancer cells. Through their experiments, the researchers were able to demonstrate that the substance they are using is preferentially taken up by diseased tissue. More
