Submission + - Low Oxygen Cellular Protein Synthesis Mechanism Discovered (ottawacitizen.com)

_prime writes: Until recently the mechanism by which cells make proteins in low-oxygen environments has been unknown. As published in Nature this week, the discovery of the mechanism by an Ottawa-based team of researchers potentially means it could be "very easy to kill cancer cells" without harming normal cells because cancer cells leverage the same low-oxygen protein synthesis mechanism even in the presence of normal oxygen levels.
