Cancer Biology

Highly metastatic breast cancer cells activate a population of periostin-expressing CAFs that remodel the extracellular matrix to promote escape of cancer cells into lymphatic vessels and drive colonization of proximal lymph nodes.

Oncogenic β-catenin can use tissue-specific partners to regulate cellular differentiation programs that can be reversed by epigenetic therapies, identifying epigenetic control of differentiation as a viable target for β-catenin–driven cancers.

The integration of miRNA expression profiles and genetic variants identified rs11245997 as a colorectal cancer risk-related variant that reduces miR-140-3p binding and m6A modification, leading to BET1L upregulation to promote colorectal tumorigenesis.

Transcriptional lineage tracing coupled with single-cell transcriptomics defined the transcriptional programs underlying metastatic progression in breast cancer, identifying prognostic signatures and prevention strategies.

Cancer Immunology

Blocking sialylation augments antitumor immunity and enhances response to immune checkpoint blockade therapy, highlighting a potential therapeutic approach for treating patients with high-grade serous ovarian cancer.

Cancer Metabolism and Molecular Mechanisms

IGF2BP3 stabilizes COX6B2 to increase oxidative phosphorylation and to drive resistance to EGFR inhibitors in lung cancer, which provides a therapeutic strategy to overcome acquired resistance by targeting metabolic transitions.

Methylation of the 5′UTR IRES of VEGFA mRNA increases cap-independent translation via recruitment of the YTHDC2/eIF4GI complex, which stimulates angiogenesis to promote lung tumor growth.

Identification of neddylation and ubiquitination pathways that regulate MEN1 protein stability provides an opportunity for therapeutic interventions for treating patients with pancreatic neuroendocrine tumors.

Translational Cancer Biology

Caffeine treatment and FOXM1 inhibition can both enhance the antitumor effect of statins by blocking the molecular and metabolic processes that confer statin resistance, indicating potential combination therapeutic strategies for neuroblastoma.

Blocking TGFβ facilitates IFNγ-mediated resistance to anti–PD-L1 therapy due to the role of TGFβ in inhibiting IFNγ-induced immunoevasion by increasing SHP1 phosphatase activity in tumor cells.
