Research done by Fang Xiao, MD, PhD, Research Associate at Fox Chase, and Denise Connolly, PhD, Associate Professor at Fox Chase, led them to identify the importance of FAK in ovarian cancer, but the enzyme wasn't part of their investigation at the beginning.
But STAT3 itself is not a promising candidate for targeted therapy, Connolly
says, because, as a transcription factor, it lacks catalytic activity that could be blocked directly.
Suspecting they could find a related molecule to inhibit the protein's actions in cancer cell lines, Xiao and Connolly
conducted laboratory experiments to better understand the underlying biology.
"What's unique about Xiao's study is that focal adhesion kinase so far hasn't been shown to activate STAT3 in solid tumors," says Connolly
, whose research focuses on understanding the biological underpinnings of epithelial ovarian cancer.
