They found that by using additional drugs that inhibit pathways that degrade CNT1, they could partially restore its normal function and transport more gemcitabine into the tumor cells to prevent proliferation of the tumor.
Govindarajan and his colleagues also found that CNT1 was likely regulated by tiny RNA molecules called micro-RNAs.
We could potentially use micro-RNAs to increase CNT1 expression and increase tumor-cell targeting of gemcitabine," said Govindarajan.
