Scientists from Cancer Research UK's Cambridge Research Institute and the Wellcome Trust Sanger Institute have shown, in human cancer cells and mice, that a gene called USP9x is switched off through chemical tags on the DNA's surface.

They believe the gene could be faulty in some pancreatic cancers, raising the prospect that existing drugs, which strip away these chemical tags, could be an effective way of treating some pancreatic cancers.
