  12 May, 2014
  Professor Hiroyuki Aburatani (Genome Science) and his research group
  carried out genome sequencing of diffuse-type gastric carcinomas with a
  high probability of a poor outcome and identified mutations of the RHOA
  gene that are potential targets for drug treatment. The gain of new
  functions by the RHOA mutations identified in this study are a potential
  new drug target against diffuse-type gastric cancers.
