Cancer Research Highlights


Cancer Biology

A quiescent p57+ subpopulation of intestinal CSCs is resistant to chemotherapy and can be targeted to effectively suppress the recurrence of intestinal cancer.

Cancer Immunology

Intratumoral immune hotspots beyond tertiary lymphoid structures reflect an immunosuppressive microenvironment, different from peritumoral immune hotspots, warranting further study in the context of immunotherapies.

Cancer Metabolism and Molecular Mechanisms

Stable isotope 13C1-serine and 13C6-cystine tracing characterizes cysteine metabolism in normal murine tissues and its rewiring in tumors using genetically engineered mouse models of liver, pancreas, and lung cancers.

FOXA2 expression combined with mutant KRAS drives invasive mucinous adenocarcinoma of the lung by synergistically promoting a mucous transcriptional program, suggesting strategies for targeting this lung cancer type that lacks effective therapies.

Dual functions of circFNDC3B in enhancing the metastatic ability of cancer cells and promoting vasculature formation through regulation of multiple pro-oncogenic signaling pathways drive lymph node metastasis of OSCC.

Secretion of TNFα by tumor-associated macrophages stimulates cancer cells to upregulate lncRNA MALR, which induces ILF3 liquid–liquid phase separation and activation of HIF1α signaling to promote cancer progression.

Translational Cancer Biology

Loss of the splicing factor RBM10 is mutually exclusive with p53 mutations, promotes tumorigenesis, and enhances the efficacy of spliceosome inhibition in EGFR-driven lung cancer.

Cancer Landscapes

Generation of spatially resolved gene expression patterns in tumors from patients with ovarian cancer surviving more than 10 years allows the identification of novel predictive biomarkers and therapeutic targets for better patient management.

Comprehensive profiling of the enhancer landscape and 3D genome structure in liposarcoma identifies extensive enhancer-oncogene coamplification and enhancer hijacking events, deepening the understanding of how oncogenes are regulated in cancer.

Computational Cancer Biology and Technology

This study identified new oncogenic HER2 allosteric mutations, including ECD mutations that share covalent dimerization as a mechanism of oncogenicity, suggesting the need for novel inhibitors to treat HER2-mutant cancers.

Convergence Science

α-Fetoprotein (AFP) is a secreted tumor protein and biomarker with impact on immunity. Fatty acid–bound AFP promotes immune suppression by skewing human dendritic cell metabolism toward glycolysis and reduced immune stimulation.
