Washington: Researchers have found that a milk protein with known health effects significantly reduces the growth rate of colon cancer cells over time by prolonging the period of the cell cycle before chromosomes are replicated.In a new study, investigators from Sweden report that treatment with found lactoferricin4-14 (Lfcin4-14) reduces DNA damage in colon cancer cells exposed to ultraviolet (UV) light.“We previously hypothesized that the prolongation of the cell cycle in colon cancer cells as a result of Lfcin4-14 treatment may give the cells extra time for DNA repair,” Professor Stina Oredsson, one of the lead investigators from the University of Lund, Sweden, said.“Indeed, UV light-induced damage was decreased in colon cancer cells treated with Lfcin4-14 compared with controls. The differences were small but significant,” Oredsson said.
