What is it about?
This research paper focuses on the identification of six differentially expressed cancer proteins that were isolated from cancer cells following exposure to cytotoxic tropical fern extracts. The study found these identified proteins could potentially lead to the development of target-specific chemotherapeutic agents in future studies, which would be a significant breakthrough for targeted chemotherapy treatments.

Why is it important?
This study is important because it identifies six differentially expressed cancer proteins that were isolated from cancer cells following exposure to cytotoxic tropical fern extracts. The identification of these proteins could potentially lead to the development and production of target-specific chemotherapeutic agents, which would be a significant breakthrough in targeted chemotherapy treatments against various types of cancers. This research highlights how medicinal plants like tropical ferns can provide important sources for both food and medicine applications, with further efforts leading towards new discoveries in medical science.
