Cancer Research Highlights

Controversy and Consensus

Genome and Epigenome

In prostate cancer, 5-hydroxymethylcytosine delineates oncogene activation and stage-specific cell states and can be analyzed in liquid biopsies to detect cancer phenotypes.

Integrated analysis of multiomic changes and epigenetic regulation in high-grade serous ovarian cancer provides insights into the molecular characteristics of this disease, which could help improve diagnosis and treatment.

Integrative analysis of multiomic and drug dependency data uncovers robust lung adenocarcinoma expression subtypes with unique therapeutic vulnerabilities and subtype-specific biomarkers of response.

Metabolism and Chemical Biology

In clinically operable pancreatic cancer, regions distant from malignant cells already display proteomic changes related to lipid transport and metabolism that affect prognosis and may be pharmacologically targeted.

Molecular Cell Biology

Loss of NMD proteins promotes resistance to ATR inhibitors in gastric cancer cells, which may provide a combination of therapeutic targets and biomarkers to improve the clinical utility of these drugs.

These findings reveal how cancer cells acquire resistance to ATRi and identify pathways that could be targeted to enhance the overall effectiveness of these inhibitors.

GLUT4 upregulation by ALKBH5-mediated m6A demethylation induces glycolysis and resistance to HER2-targeted therapy and represents a potential therapeutic target for treating HER2-positive breast cancer.

ASGR1 downregulation by DNA methylation facilitates liver tumorigenesis by increasing STAT3 phosphorylation.

Resistance to NAC in breast cancer is driven by a novel p62 mRNA isoform that escapes miRNA-mediated repression and leads to increased p62 protein expression.

Tumor Biology and Immunology

The identification of a role for CYP4F2-dependent metabolism in driving immune evasion in non–small cell lung cancer reveals a strategy to improve the efficacy of immunotherapy by inhibiting CYP4F2.

This study identifies a specific dependency on PTDSS1 for phosphatidylserine synthesis following PTDSS2 deletion and introduces novel PTDSS1 inhibitors as a therapeutic option to induce collateral lethality in cancer with PTDSS2 loss.

A paralog synthetic–lethal interaction between VRK1 and VRK2 sensitizes VRK2-methylated glioblastoma to perturbation of VRK1 kinase activity, supporting VRK1 as a drug discovery target in this disease.

Translational Science

The complex genomic landscape of RAS-mutant tumors is reflective of selection processes in a cancer lineage–specific and context-dependent manner, highlighting differential therapeutic vulnerabilities that can be clinically translated.

MET amplification upregulates CD73 to suppress tumor cell STING induction and T-cell responsiveness in TKI-resistant, EGFR-mutated lung cancer, identifying a strategy to enhance immunogenicity and improve treatment.

Convergence and Technologies

Optical imaging of microscale tissue stiffness enables the detection of residual breast cancer directly in the surgical cavity during breast-conserving surgery, which could potentially contribute to more complete cancer excision.
