Identification of metabolic changes leading to cancer susceptibility in Fanconi anemia cells.

Abstract Fanconi anemia (FA) is a chromosomal instability disorder of bone marrow associated with aplastic anemia, congenital abnormalities and a high risk of malignancies. The identification of more than two dozen FA genes has revealed a plethora of interacting proteins that are mainly involved in repair of DNA interstrand crosslinks (ICLs). Other important findings associated […]

Biosfer Teslab Collaborates in Cancer Studies


Metabolomics can help in the study of different cancers by analysing whether a particular type of tumour is characterised by the development of certain metabolites. To this aim, Biosfer Teslab collaborates directly with Josep Gumà, director of the Oncology Institute of Southern Catalonia, and together with the Higher Technical School of Engineering of the URV […]
