A decade after losing favor as an ‘uninteresting’ digestive enzyme, pancreatic ribonuclease has been found to be homologous to a series of extracellular proteins that may influence tumor cell growth, neurological development and biological differentiation. One surprising outcome of these discoveries has been the confirmation of the hypothesis that extracellular ‘communicator RNA’ is a messenger important in cell growth and differentiation. The only question is: why wasn't this recognized earlier?
