Chief executive of the institute, Professor Kristian Helin, added: “Pancreatic cancer is one of the most devastating of all cancers – the most common form of the disease spreads aggressively, making it hard to treat and a terrifying diagnosis for patients and their loved ones.
“This new finding has broadened our understanding of the molecular basis of how pancreatic cancer gains the ability to grow and spread around the body.
“Although more work is required, this type of fundamental research is essential for developing concepts for new and more effective treatments for cancer.”
The team also discovered that another protein, called BMP2, is involved in regulating GREM1.
