    Tumor copy number alteration burden is a pan-cancer prognostic factor associated with recurrence and death

    Haley Hieronymus et al.
    The percentage of a tumor’s genome with alterations in copy number is correlated with increased mortality across a range of tumor types and can be measured using a clinically approved sequencing assay.

    Werner syndrome helicase is a selective vulnerability of microsatellite instability-high tumor cells

    Simone Lieb et al.
    Targeting Werner syndrome helicase might constitute a novel opportunity for the treatment of a clinically defined subset of patients harboring MSI-H/MMR-deficient tumors.

    A kinase-independent function of AKT promotes cancer cell survival

    Igor Vivanco et al.
    The oncogenic potential of the serine threonine kinase AKT is not exclusively dependent on catalytic activity, but also involves the non-catalytic function of the pleckstrin homology domain.

    Upregulation of TRPM3 in nociceptors innervating inflamed tissue

    Marie Mulier et al.
    The expression and function of the cation channel TRPM3 is strongly increased in sensory neurons innervating inflamed tissue, likely contributing to inflammatory hyperalgesia and persistent pain.

    Gain of channel function and modified gating properties in TRPM3 mutants causing intellectual disability and epilepsy

    Evelien Van Hoeymissen et al.
    Two mutations in TRPM3 resulting in developmental and epileptic encephalopathies result in a gain-of-channel function, which may lie at the basis of epileptic activity and neurodevelopmental symptoms in the patients.

    TP53 exon-6 truncating mutations produce separation of function isoforms with pro-tumorigenic functions

    Nitin H Shirole et al.
    Genetic and molecular analysis of TP53 exon-6 truncating mutations reveal that these mutations, contrary to current belief, promote tumorigenesis and point towards strategies for treating cancers driven by these prevalent mutations.
