New findings could help in the development of anticancer drugs

Scientists at Stockholm University in Stockholm have established a mechanism by which our cells fine-tune their internal pH and sodium levels. Using cryo electron microscopy they have determined the first 3D-structure of a so-called “sodium/proton exchanger” that carries out this task. Their findings could help in the development of anticancer drugs in particular.
