The hERG1 protein, that regulates heartbeat, is involved in the pathology of breast cancer and in the process of metastasis in cancer cells. That’s the discovery of a multidisciplinary research team, coordinated by prof. Annarosa Arcangeli, Full Professor of General Pathology at the Department of Experimental and Clinical Medicine of the University of Florence. DI.V.A.L. TOSCANA, spin-off of the University of Florence engaged in the research and development of drugs, collaborated to the study too, as well as the Universities of Milano-Bicocca, Leiden and Turin and the National Institute of Optics of CNR. "The results - concludes Arcangeli - pose a challenge to develop novel drugs or novel molecular tools to unlock the complex that hERG forms with specific cancer receptors, to fight cancer metastasis without affecting the functioning of the protein in the heart."
