Calcium bursts kill drug-resistant tumor cells

Multidrug resistance (MDR)—a process in which tumors become resistant to multiple medicines—is the main cause of failure of cancer chemotherapy. Tumor cells often acquire MDR by boosting their production of proteins that ...

Antibacterial prodrug by targeting intracellular metabolite

National University of Singapore researchers have developed an approach to selectively target pathogenic bacteria by harnessing an intracellular metabolite known as formate, abundant in these bacteria, as a new antimicrobial ...
