Cancer Research Highlights

Resource Report

Patient-derived xenografts of lung cancer retain key features observed in the originating patient tumors and show expected responses to treatment with standard-of-care agents, providing experimentally tractable and reproducible models for preclinical investigations.

Genome and Epigenome

The first genome-wide map of DNA methylation in breast cancer–associated fibroblasts unravels a previously unknown facet of the dynamic plasticity of the stroma, with far-reaching therapeutic implications.

Activation of mutant Kras is dependent on MLL-mediated epigenetic regulation of Rasgrf1, conferring sensitivity to small-molecule inhibition of MLL in Kras-driven lung cancer.

Metabolism and Chemical Biology

Exercise protects against cancer progression and metastasis by inducing a high nutrient demand in internal organs, indicating that reducing nutrient availability to tumor cells represents a potential strategy to prevent metastasis.

Molecular Cell Biology

This study identifies signaling pathways essential for maintaining the stemness and metastatic potential of colorectal cancer cells and proposes CREB as a therapeutic target in metastatic colorectal cancer.

This study reveals that RNA-binding protein MEX3C induces SOCS3 mRNA decay to promote JAK2/STAT3 activation and tumor metastasis in hepatocellular carcinoma, identifying MEX3C targeting as a potential approach for treating metastatic disease.

Tumor Biology and Immunology

IFNα secreted by plasmacytoid dendritic cells drives postoperative immunosuppression and early recurrence of hepatocellular carcinoma, providing new biomarkers and therapeutic targets to improve patient outcomes after surgical resection.

The p130–WNT5A–RHOA pathway drives SCLC progression and is a potential target for the development of therapeutic interventions and biomarkers to improve patient treatment.

A MEX3A/CCR4–NOT/MSH2 axis plays a crucial role in promoting temozolomide resistance, providing new insights into the function of MEX3A and suggesting MEX3A as a potential therapeutic target in therapy-resistant glioblastoma.

KDM6A loss in pancreatic cancer cells alters the immune microenvironment by increasing CXCL1 secretion and neutrophil recruitment, providing a rationale for targeting the CXCL1–CXCR2 signaling axis in tumors with low KDM6A.

Loss of RBMS3 cooperates with BRAFV600E to induce lung tumorigenesis, providing a deeper understanding of the molecular mechanisms underlying mutant BRAF-driven lung cancer and potential strategies to more effectively target this disease.

Epigenetic profiling uncovers cell adhesion programming as a regulator of the tumor-promoting functions of monocytic myeloid-derived suppressor cells in glioblastoma, identifying therapeutic targets that modulate the immune response and suppress tumor growth.

Translational Science

A conditionally active EGFR-CD3 T cell–engaging Probody therapeutic expands the safety window of bispecific antibodies while maintaining efficacy in preclinical solid tumor settings.
