Controversy and Consensus


Cancer Biology

The p53 DNA binding domain contact mutant p53R245W, but not the structural mutant p53R172H, interacts with KLF15 to drive metastasis in somatic osteosarcoma, providing a potential vulnerability in tumors expressing p53R245W mutation.

GREB1 is a liver cancer–specific Wnt signaling target gene that induces an oncogenic shift of HNF4α, a putative tumor suppressor, and may represent a therapeutic target in Wnt-activated hepatocellular carcinoma.

Cancer Immunology

Ccr2+ melanoma macrophages that are active in tumors during the drug-tolerant persister state following targeted therapy-induced regression are key contributors directing melanoma cell reprogramming toward specific therapeutic resistance trajectories.

HDAC2 inhibition reverses the protumor phenotype of macrophages mediated by epigenetic modulation induced by the HDAC2–SP1 axis, indicating a therapeutic option to modify the immunosuppressive tumor microenvironment.

Analysis of the impact of metformin on the colorectal cancer immunometabolic landscape at a single-cell resolution shows that metformin alters cancer cell tryptophan metabolism to stimulate CD8+ T-cell antitumor activity.

Cancer Metabolism and Molecular Mechanisms

PTTG1 is upregulated in hepatocellular carcinoma and increases asparagine production to stimulate mTOR activity and promote tumor progression.

Retinoids have ferroptosis-protective properties and can be metabolized by RETSAT to promote ferroptosis, suggesting the possibility of targeting retinoid metabolism in cancer as a treatment strategy to trigger ferroptosis.

Therapeutic Development and Chemical Biology

Elevated expression of CD44 variant 5 in intrahepatic cholangiocarcinoma confers a targetable vulnerability using the newly developed antibody–drug conjugate H1D8–DC, which induces potent growth suppressive effects without significant toxicity.

Translational Cancer Biology

PI3K/Akt signaling promotes metabolic adaptation to ONC201-mediated disruption of mitochondrial energy homeostasis in diffuse intrinsic pontine glioma, highlighting the utility of a combination treatment strategy using ONC201 and the PI3K/Akt inhibitor paxalisib.
