Biochemistry of Cancer Cells
There is no doubt that cancer cells differ from their normal cell counterparts. What scientists want to identify is the biochemical change (or changes) that produces their altered properties and behavior. The problem is important because identification of such a change may mean that it can be prevented or reversed and malignancy cured. The solution, however, is also elusive, even though it has been the target of considerable scientific enterprise, much of which, during the last 5 years, has been directed at changes in cell membranes following transformation (the conversion of normal cells to cancer cells).
