|Title:||How PROTACs Use Our Cells' Natural Disposal System to Kill Cancer-Causing Proteins|
New technologies that degrade the proteins that drive cancer cell growth are an emerging area of cancer research. One example is proteolysis targeting chimera (PROTAC), in which molecules are generated that tag a specific protein for degradation by a cell's normal machinery.
