Researchers from Spain, the UK, and the United States have successfully unravelled the mechanism by which two proteins, MATα2 and MATβ, join with each other, promoting the reproduction of tumor cells in liver and colon cancers and finding a drug that can act on the binding of these proteins, and thereby possibly inhibit growth of cancer cells.

D.

Meaning difference between C and D.

C says "..have successfully unraveled the mechanism by which two proteins, MATα2 and MATβ, join with each other and promote the reproduction..", which essentially means they have unraveled two things - 1. mechanism by which two proteins join, and 2. mechanism by which two proteins promote the reproduction. According to the original paraphrase, they have only unraveled the mechanism by which two proteins join with each other. The modifier - promoting the reproduction..- modifies the previous action join.

IMO D.

A) States have successfully unravelled the mechanism by which two proteins, MATα2 and MATβ, join with each other, promoting the reproduction of tumor cells in liver and colon cancers and finding a drug that can act on the binding of these proteins, and thereby possibly inhibit

Higlighted parts need to be parallel. Parallelism missed here.Hence Incorrect

B) States, successfully unravelling the mechanism by which two proteins, MATα2 and MATβ, that join with each other, promoting the reproduction of tumor cells in liver and colon cancers, and have found a drug that can, by acting on the binding of these proteins, possibly inhibit

Higlighted parts need to be parallel. Parallelism missed here.Hence Incorrect

C) States have successfully unravelled the mechanism by which two proteins, MATα2 and MATβ, join with each other and promote the reproduction of tumor cells in liver and colon cancers, and have found a drug that can, by acting on the binding of these proteins, possibly inhibit

Here option C says in highlighted part that the drug itself will help in inhibiting growth of cancer cells. But the meaning here should be that the drug acts on the binding of protein which in turn helps in inhibiting growth of cancer cells. Hence Incorrect

D) States have successfully unravelled the mechanism by which two proteins, MATα2 and MATβ, join with each other, promoting the reproduction of tumor cells in liver and colon cancers, and have found a drug that can act on the binding of these proteins, thereby possibly inhibiting

Parallelism and meaning both maintained here. Hence Correct.

E) States have successfully unravelled the mechanism by which two proteins, MATα2 and MATβ, join with each other and therefore promote the reproduction of tumor cells in liver and coloncancers, have founda drug that can, by acting on the binding of these proteins, thereby possibly inhibit

Parallelism required here but removed. Hence Incorrect

I chose D too.

Narrowed it down to C and D and then chose D because I found D clearer.
Thought this part in C - "have found a drug that can, by acting on the binding of these proteins, possibly inhibit" was less direct and needlessly breaks the flow of the part that says - have found a drug that can possibly inhibit.
