Un equipo internacional de investigadores con participación del Consejo Superior de Investigaciones Científicas (CSIC) ha descubierto una nueva vía por la que las células sanas y tumorales responden a la quimioterapia.



Una nueva proteína, denominada ZATT, consigue reestructurar y modificar las roturas del ADN provocadas por la quimioterapia, facilitando su reparación y, por tanto, el funcionamiento y la supervivencia celular. El estudio, publicado en la revista Science, puede contribuir a desarrollar futuras herramientas tanto de pronóstico como de intervención terapéutica.


“A la espera de nuevos tratamientos, la quimioterapia continúa siendo una herramienta fundamental en la lucha contra el cáncer”, explica Felipe Cortés, co-líder del estudio e investigador del CSIC en el Centro Andaluz de Biología Molecular y Medicina Regenerativa (centro mixto del CSIC, la Fundación Progreso y Salud, la Junta de Andalucía, la Universidad de Sevilla y la Universidad Pablo de Olavide). “Un grupo importante de agentes antitumorales basa su eficacia en la inducción de roturas en el ADN que afectan de manera preferente al crecimiento y la supervivencia de las células cancerosas, y atenúan así la progresión del tumor”, añade.

"Las roturas en el ADN producidas por estos agentes se caracterizan por contener unos bloqueos proteicos que necesitan eliminarse de los extremos de la rotura para permitir que el daño se repare y se reconstituya así la integridad del material genético. Es decir, las roturas tienen que ‘limpiarse’ antes de poder volver a ‘pegarse’, lo que es esencial para garantizar el funcionamiento y la supervivencia celular”, detalla Cortés. “Por lo tanto, los mecanismos que limpian estas roturas, tanto en el tumor como en el tejido sano, determinan en gran medida la respuesta celular a estos agentes y, en última instancia, la eficacia del tratamiento y sus efectos secundarios”.

Hasta la fecha se pensaba que para la limpieza de los extremos de las roturas era necesario un paso en el que el bloqueo proteico se degrada. “Esta degradación deja pequeños residuos que se eliminan posteriormente de forma específica mediante la acción de una enzima altamente especializada llamada TDP2, y que descubrimos en 2009”, indica el investigador.



En este trabajo, los investigadores demuestran que las roturas se pueden limpiar de forma directa, sin necesidad de degradación, mediante la acción de ZATT, una nueva proteína que han identificado y que tiene la capacidad de reestructurar y modificar los extremos para facilitar la actividad de TDP2.


“En definitiva, hemos descubierto una nueva vía por la que las células pueden responder a la quimioterapia”, señala Cortés. “Estos conocimientos deben constituir la base de futuras herramientas tanto de pronóstico como de intervención terapéutica. Es decir, por un lado, la funcionalidad de esta ruta de reparación (por ejemplo midiendo los niveles de TDP2 y ZATT) puede emplearse para predecir la respuesta del tumor a la quimioterapia, lo que puede ayudar en la estratificación de pacientes y el diseño de tratamientos personalizados. Por otro lado, nuevas moléculas que inhiban la ruta TDP2-ZATT podrían emplearse para aumentar la sensibilidad de tumores a estos tratamientos y evitar el desarrollo de posibles resistencias”.

Sitting in the back of that Hummer, Jordan Store my head Cheap Air Max Trainers in chaussures nike pas cher a hood, my handslashed Nike Roshe Run behind my back, lurching back and forth UGG BOOTS FOR WOMEN while the bruisesswelled up nike shoes on my Michael Kors Clearance head, terrorism suddenly felt a lot riskier.

The car rocked back Air Max Pas Cher and Pandora Store forth Nike Shoes Online and tipped uphill. I gathered Cheap Retro Jordans For Sale we wereheaded over Nob Hill, and from the angle, it seemed we were Billige Nike Sko taking oneof the steeper chaussure basket homme routes — Nike Air Max Goedkoop I guessed Cheap Air Max Powell Nike Shox Cheap Street.

Now we were descending just Adidas Shoes Discount Marketplace as steeply. retro jordans for cheap If my mental map was right,we pandora beads were heading down new yeezy shoes to Fisherman's Wharf. You could get Moncler Jackets Discount Marketplace on a boatthere, get away. That fit with the UGGS For Women terrorism hypothesis. Why nike mercurial soccer cleats the hellwould terrorists kidnap a bunch of Moncler Outlet Store high school students?

We Toms Outlet Online rocked to Adidas Originals Stan Smith a stop still Canada goose dam on a downslope. The engine died and then Abercrombie and fitch store thedoors swung Nike Air Max Cheap open. Someone dragged me by my arms out onto the road,then shoved Toms Factory Outlet me, stumbling, down a paved road. A few seconds later, Itripped over a steel nike schuhe günstig staircase, bashing Ugg Pas Cher En France my shins. The hands behind megave ugg clearance me another shove. nike air I went up the stairs cautiously, not able to huarache sneakers usemy hands. I got coach factory outlet online up the Yeezy Black third step Cheap Michael Kors Handbags and reached for the fourth, but it wasn'tthere. I nearly fell Reebok Outlet Store again, but new hands suivre un envoi grabbed me from in front anddragged me down a steel floor and Official Toms Shoes Outlet then forced me Nike Online Store to my Scarpe Nike Scontate knees andlocked my TOMS OUTLET hands to Chaussure Air Max something Adidas Superstar behind me.

More movement, and the sense of bodies being Nike Air Sneakers shackled Uggs Pas Cher Soldes in alongsideof me. Groans Air max dam and muffled sounds. Air Nike Laughter. Then a long, timelesseternity in the muffled gloom, breathing my own breath, hearing myown breath in my ears.

I actually Boty Nike Air managed a ugg factory outlet kind nfl store of sleep Cheap Michael Kors there, kneeling with the circulationcut off to my Michael Kors legs, my Nike Polo Sale head in canvas twilight. nike sportschuhe My body adidas outlet had Air Max 90 squirted ayear's supply of adrenalin into my bloodstream in the space of 30minutes, and while that vans shoe store stuff Yeezy Men can give you the strength to nike air jordan pas cher lift New Air Max 2017 cars Nike Outlet off42your Negozi Pandora loved ones and leap over tall Bottes Ugg Femme Pas Cher buildings, the payback's always abitch.

I woke up to someone pulling the hood off my head. They wereneither rough Pandora Official Website nor careful — canada goose jackets on sale just… impersonal. Like someone atMcDonald's putting together burgers.

The light in the room was so bright I had to squeeze Cheap True Religion Jeans my eyes shut, butslowly I was Nike Factory Store able to open scarpe nike them to slits, then cracks, Air Max Sneakers then all the way andlook around.

We were Nike Shoes Sale Store all in Coach Bags On Sale the back of a truck, a big 16-wheeler. I could see Nike Huarache Womens Cheap thewheel-wells Nike Pas Cher Femme at Nike Store regular intervals down the length. Pandora Store Sale But Cheap Toms Shoes Outlet the louboutin heels back of thistruck had cheap uggs been turned into some kind of mobile command-post/jail.

Steel desks Nike Air 90 lined Official NHL Jerseys the walls cheap uggs for women with banks of slick flat-panel displays climb-ing above them Ugg Pas Cher Femme on Scarpe Air Max articulated arms that let them be air force one pas cher repositioned Boost Yeezy Sale On Line in womens nike air max ahalo around the operators. Each desk had Moncler Sale a Canada Goose Womens Coats gorgeous office-chair in frontof it, festooned with user-interface knobs for adjusting every millimeterof Original Ugg Boots the sitting surface, Pandora Style Beads as well as height, pitch and yaw.

Then there was nike jordan shoes the jail Mens Nike Air Max part — at the pandora jewelry store front of the truck, furthest awayfrom the doors, there were steel rails nike sneakers bolted Michael Kors Outlet into the sides of the vehicle,and Adidas Superstar Sale Online attached to these Louboutin Wedding Shoes steel rails were the ジョーダン スニーカー prisoners.

I spotted Van and Jolu right away. Darryl might have nike tn pas cher been in pandora outlet store the 23 IS BACK Store re-maining Nike Shox discount Sale dozen shackled up back Nike Kyrie here, but it was Doudoune Moncler Femme Pas Cher impossible to say Nike Air Pas Cher —many of them Coach Outlet Store Online were Yeezy Shoes Discount Marketplace slumped Ugg boots Sale over and blocking my view. It Nike Air Women stank Timberland Outlet ofsweat and fear back there.

Vanessa looked at Cheap Michael Kors Tote Bag me and bit Pandora Store her lip. She zapatos de futbol nike was Nike Air Jordan 11 scared. So Cheap Louboutin Heels was Kobe Shoes Nike I. So wasJolu, his eyes rolling crazily Zapatillas Nike Air Max Baratas in their sockets, the whites showing. I wasscared. What's more, UGG Boots Cheap I had to piss like a race-horse.

I looked around for our Air max levně captors. I'd avoided looking at TOMS For Sale them up untilnow, the same way you don't look into the dark of a closet where yourmind Boutique Ugg has conjured up Jordan Shoes Air a Hogan Outlet boogey-man. Nike Shoes Discount Marketplace You Nike Air Damen don't Discount Ray Ban Sunglasses want to know if you'reright.

But I Discount TOMS had to Cheap True Religion Jeans get a Cheap Nike Huarache better look Nike Air Shoes at these Adidas NMD For Sale jerks who'd kidnapped new pandora charms us. If theywere Moncler Outlet terrorists, I wanted to know. I didn't know what moncler jacket sale a terrorist lookedlike, Christian Louboutin Shoes Outlet though TV shows had done their best to convince me that they Discount Christian Louboutin Shoes werebrown Arabs Discount Air Max with big beards and knit asics sko caps and loose Cheap Toms Outlet Store cotton Pandora Outlet dresses thathung Moncler Outlet Online down to their Christian Louboutin Heels ankles.

Not so our captors. They could Ray Ban Sunglasses Online have been half-time-show cheerleaderson the toms shoes outlet Super Bowl. They cheap nike air max looked reebok running shoes American in a Nike Air Max Sale way I couldn't exactlydefine. New Nike Shoes Good jaw-lines, Vans Black Sneakers short, neat haircuts that weren't quite military.

43They came in white and brown, male and female, Nike joggesko and Nike Soccer Cleats Boots smiled freely atone another Canada Goose Outlet as they sat down at new jordan releases the other end of the truck, joking anddrinking coffees out Nike Factory Outlet of Canada Goose Online Store go-cups. These weren't Ay-rabs from Afgh-anistan: Cheap Nike Air Huarache they モンクレール レディース looked like tourists from Soccer Boots Outlet nike Nebraska.

I stared at one, Nike Tn Requin Pas Cher a young white woman with brown hair who barelylooked older UGGS Outlet than me, kind of cute newest lebron shoes in a scary Descuentos Nike office-power-suit way. Ifyou stare at someone long enough, they'll eventually look back Stone Island Outlet at you.

She TOMS SHOES OUTLET did, and her face slammed into a totally different configuration, dis-passionate, even robotic. fitflops sale uk The smile vanished canada goose jacket outlet in an instant.

"Hey," I said. "Look, I don't Adidas Soccer Cleats Cheap understand what's going chaussure adidas pas cher on günstige nike schuhe here, but Ireally need to take Doudoune Moncler Pas Cher a leak, you know?"She Nike Roshe Run Sale looked right through converse store me Uggs For Cheap as if she hadn't heard.

"I'm serious, if Adidas Yeezy Boost 350 For Sale I don't christian louboutin outlet get to a can soon, I'm going to have an ugly acci-dent. It's going to get pretty Yeezy Boost Sale Online smelly back TOMS STORE here, you know?"She turned to her colleagues, Doudoune Moncler Site Officiel a little huddle of Air Max Kopen three of them, and theyheld adidas store a low conversation I couldn't hear Hugo Boss Sale over the fans from thecomputers.

She turned back to me. "Hold Cheap Real Jordans it for another ten minutes, then you'lleach get ADIDAS NMD SALE ON LINE a piss-call.""I don't think I've got another Chaussure Nike Air Max Pas Cher ten minutes in me," I said, prada outlet letting a littlemore urgency than I was Nike Air Huarache For Sale really feeling creep into my Adidas Yeezy Cheap voice. "Seriously,lady, Air Max Femme it's now Cheap Nike Free Run or never."She shook Adidas Originals Superstar her head and looked at me longchamp bags on sale like Canada Goose Outlet I nike sb stefan janoski was some zapatillas nike baratas kind of patheticloser. She and her friends conferred some more, then another one cameforward. Jordan Sneakers For Sale He was Zapatillas Air Max older, in his early thirties, and pretty Michael Kors Handbags Discount big across theshoulders, like he worked out. Jordan Shoes For Cheap He looked like he was Chinese or Korean— even Van ugg store can't tell Adidas Neo Discount Sale the difference sometimes — but with that bearingthat said American in a way I couldn't Hyperdunk 2014 put my finger Chaussure Nike Pas Cher on.

He pulled his sports-coat aside to let me The official UGG see the hardware strappedthere: Nike Outlet Store I Nike Free Run 5.0 Womens recognized a pistol, a tazer and Adidas Originals Sale a can of either mace or botas de futbol pepper-spray before he let Ugg Outlet Online Store it fall again.
