A new study has found that the gene, mEAK-7, which they discovered last year, may play a key role in cancer metastasis. By comparing mEAK-7 expression levels in normal and cancer cells, they found that the gene was highly expressed in the cancer cells. They also found that the gene, when combined with a large molecule, created an alternative pathway used by cancer to grow and spread.
