Healthy Living: Jellyfish and Cancer
Guanosine triphosphate, or GTP, is the master regulator of cell processes, including transforming normal cells into cancer.
Because GTP is everywhere in our bodies, binding proteins to this molecule using phosphorescent light from a jellyfish helps researchers better see and predict cancer recurrence, and to test out new drugs.
We show you how in Healthy Living.
It’s still in the research phase.
Next up, animal testing and human clinical trials.
But researchers say this is an important breakthrough in monitoring the GTP molecule that plays such a huge role in our overall health.
