Cancer Research Highlights

Resource Reports

This study develops a mouse model of immunogenic KRAS-mutant lung cancer to facilitate the investigation of optimal combinations of targeted therapies with immunotherapies.

This study provides insights into the host–microbiome interactions for multiple cancer types, which could help the research community understand the effects of inherited variants in tumorigenesis and development.

Genome and Epigenome

Genome-wide analyses show that human endogenous retroviruses mediate cancer cell type–specific gene expression, epigenetic modification, and 3D chromatin architecture, elucidating the relationship between HERVs and diverse cancers.

Elucidation of the landscape of immune-related alternative polyadenylation in cancer identifies alternative polyadenylation events that may play a role in immune modulation and immunotherapy efficacy.

Metabolism and Chemical Biology

Selenium restriction augments ascorbate efficacy and extends lifespan in a mouse xenograft model of glioblastoma, suggesting that targeting selenium-mediated antioxidant defenses merits clinical evaluation in combination with ascorbate and other pro-oxidant therapies.

Molecular Cell Biology

Two germline CDC20 missense variants that segregate with cancer in two families compromise the spindle assembly checkpoint and lead to aberrant mitotic progression, which could predispose cells to transformation.

Metabolic and nonmetabolic functions of PSAT1 confer EGFR inhibitor resistance and promote metastasis in lung adenocarcinoma, suggesting therapeutic targeting of PSAT1 may attenuate the malignant features of lung cancer.

Inhibition of Plk1 induces upregulation of PD-L1 expression in pancreatic ductal adenocarcinoma, stimulating antitumor immunity and sensitizing tumors to immunotherapy.

Tumor Biology and Immunology

This work provides important insights into how different model systems of pancreatic ductal adenocarcinoma mold the phenotypic space of cancer cells, highlighting the power of in vivo models.

PAD4 regulates tumor progression by promoting neutrophil migration and can be targeted with a small molecule inhibitor to suppress tumor growth and metastasis and increase efficacy of immune checkpoint blockade therapy.

The identification of a TRAF4/Caveolin-1 axis that plays a crucial role in malignant progression of glioblastoma provides new insights into the function of TRAF4 in ubiquitin signaling and suggests TRAF4 as a potential therapeutic target.

This study dissects the specific roles of CDK12 and CDK13 in ovarian cancer and develops a CDK12/CDK13 inhibitor that impairs both tumor and immune cells, which could guide future CDK12 inhibitor development.

Translational Science

This work introduces and provides preclinical validation of a new diffusion MRI method that exploits intrinsic differences in cell sizes to distinguish brain tumors and radiotherapy necrosis.

The proportion of patients with breast cancer extending adjuvant hormone therapy beyond 5 years has increased dramatically in recent years, which is associated with improved patient outcomes.

Convergence and Technologies

2H magnetic resonance imaging of labeled fumarate metabolism can detect early evidence of tumor cell death following chemoradiation, meeting a clinical need to reliably detect treatment response in glioblastoma.
