Freeze-frames of enzymes in action have implications for a new cancer treatment concept

Over millions of years of evolution, cells have developed myriad ways of regulating the processes that enable them to thrive. Especially useful tools have been saved, or "conserved," over the eons, so that today we can find them in a broad spectrum of life forms, from the very primitive to the most complex. New research sheds light on how one such conserved mechanism works.
