Brief description It is critical for normal health that cells regulate their responses to changes in the the extracellular environment. Receptors on the cell surface are triggered by specific proteins called cytokines, and relay information to the cell interior. These messages include signaling whether cells should survive and proliferate. Inappropriate activation of signals for survival and proliferation is a hallmark of cancer. We are investigating a new survival signal and how this contributes to the survival of normal cells and to diseases such as leukaemia.
