Zebrafish as a platform for cancer gene discovery

Icarus Consultants’ oncology new products guru, Sally Church, has published a fascinating post on Pharma Strategy Blog on how Zebrafish models of melanoma are providing new drug targets.

Sally discusses recent research published in Nature that shows the histone methyltransferase SETDB1 is an oncogene that accelerates melanoma formation in co-operation with BRAF(V600E).

What makes this research exciting is the potential of zebrafish as a platform for cancer gene discovery.
