Researchers have discovered a hyperactive cell signal that contributes to tumor growth in primary effusion lymphoma, an aggressive type of non-Hodgkin lymphoma caused by infection with the Kaposi's sarcoma-associated herpesvirus (human herpesvirus-8). They've developed an experimental therapeutic, UNC3810A, to block the signal and slow tumor growth.

A research team has unraveled the three-dimensional structure and molecular mechanism of ATP citrate lyase (ACLY). This is a central metabolic enzyme -- a protein that accelerates chemical reactions -- important for the production of fatty acids and cholesterol in the human liver. The reported findings could help targeting ACLY in cancer and metabolic diseases such as atherosclerosis.
