Cancer Research Highlights

Controversy and Consensus

Genome and Epigenome

Disruption of PU.1-directed enhancer programs upon SWI/SNF inhibition causes differentiation of AML cells and induces leukopenia of PU.1-dependent B cells and monocytes, revealing the on- and off-tumor effects of SWI/SNF blockade.

Molecular Cell Biology

Transcriptional corepressor TLE3 actively suppresses SOX9 and TGFβ transcriptional programs to sustain the luminal lineage identity of breast cancer cells and to inhibit metastatic progression.

WNT5a signaling through ROR2 activates the Hippo pathway to downregulate YAP1/TAZ activity and suppress tumor growth, identifying ROR2 as a potential biomarker to identify patients that could benefit from WNT5a-related agents.

Mutant HRAS drives metastasis of head and neck cancer by switching off the Hippo pathway to activate the YAP1–AXL axis and to stimulate lymphovascular angiogenesis.

HBV-induced upregulation of HSPA8 promotes hepatocarcinogenesis by suppressing ferroptosis and stimulating HBV replication, identifying HSPA8 as a potential therapeutic target in liver cancer.

Phosphorylation of ZDHHC13 by AMPK at S208 promotes MC1R activation and suppresses melanocyte transformation, indicating activation of AMPK as a potential approach to prevent melanoma in people with red hair.

USP48 promotes pyroptosis by deubiquitinating GSDME and enhances antitumor immunity, indicating that increasing USP48 activity may be a future therapeutic strategy for treating cancer.

Glioma cells reduce mitochondrial biogenesis by promoting PGC1α degradation to promote resistance to radiotherapy, indicating potential therapeutic strategies to enhance radiosensitivity.

Tumor Biology and Immunology

Ductal-derived pancreatic tumors have elevated epithelial and CD8+GZM+ T-cell CD73 expression that confers sensitivity to small-molecule inhibition of CD73 or Adora2b to promote CD8+ T-cell–mediated tumor regression.

Translational Science

Metabolic reprogramming in drug-resistant NRAS-mutated melanoma cells confers sensitivity to ROS induction, which suppresses tumor growth and metastasis in combination with MAPK pathway inhibitors.

Population and Prevention Science

Comorbidities are frequent and increasing in patients with cancer, emphasizing the importance of exploring optimal ways for uniform comorbidity registration and incorporating comorbidity management into cancer care.
