Table of Contents


In the Spotlight

Priority Report

Lipid nanoparticle–encapsulated mRNA can efficiently encode complex fusion proteins encompassing immune checkpoint blockers and costimulators that functionally oligomerize in vivo with extended pharmacokinetics and durable exposure to induce potent antitumor immunity.

Resource Report

FUME-TCRseq is a TCR sequencing methodology that supports sensitive and spatially resolved detection of TCR clones in archival clinical specimens, which can facilitate longitudinal tracking of immune responses through disease course and treatment.

Cancer Biology

The bile acid biosynthetic enzyme HSD3B7 is essential for ccRCC cell survival and can be targeted to induce accumulation of cholesterol-derived oxysterols and apoptotic cell death.

U2AF1 mutations induce the integrated stress response by disrupting splicing of mRNA translation genes that improves AML cell fitness to enable resistance to chemotherapy, which can be targeted to improve AML treatment.

Cancer Immunology

Optimized cyclic ketogenic diet and 1,3-butanediol supplementation regimens enhance the efficacy of immune checkpoint blockade in prostate cancer through epigenetic and immune modulations, providing dietary interventions to sensitize tumors to immunotherapy.

TMCO6 is a receptor for DNA of NETs that mediates CD8+ T-cell dysfunction in HCC, indicating that the NET-TMCO6 axis is a promising target for overcoming immunosuppression in liver cancer.

Cancer Metabolism and Molecular Mechanisms

Upregulation of integrin αvβ3, a cancer stem cell marker, in response to nutrient stress activates sustained AMPK/PGC1α signaling that induces metabolic reprogramming in lung cancer cells to support their survival.

Ammonia metabolism reprogramming mediated by aberrant activation of β-catenin induces resistance to senescence in HCC and can be targeted by inhibiting SLC4A11 as a potential therapy for β-catenin mutant liver cancer.

PABPC1L functions as a key factor in renal cell carcinoma immune evasion, enhancing IDO1 and impeding T-cell function, and represents a potential target to enhance the efficacy of immune checkpoint blockade therapy.

Therapeutic Development and Chemical Biology

The tetravalent PD-L1×4-1BB bispecific antibody ATG-101 activates 4-1BB+ T cells in a PD-L1 cross-linking–dependent manner, minimizing the hepatotoxicity of existing 4-1BB agonists and suppressing growth of ICI-resistant tumors.

Targeting NPEPPS, which induces cisplatin resistance by controlling intracellular drug concentrations, is a potential strategy to improve patient responses to platinum-based therapies and lower treatment-associated toxicities.

Translational Cancer Biology

The development of an approach to interrogate molecular subtypes, cancer-associated pathways, and differentially expressed genes through RNA sequencing of plasma extracellular vesicles lays the foundation for liquid biopsy–based longitudinal monitoring of patient tumor transcriptomes.
