    Circulating myeloid cells invade the central nervous system to mediate cachexia during pancreatic cancer

    Kevin G Burfeind et al.
    Circulating myeloid cells invade the brain during pancreatic cancer, where they accumulate at a unique central nervous system interface and drive anorexia and muscle catabolism.

    Squamous trans-differentiation of pancreatic cancer cells promotes stromal inflammation

    Tim DD Somerville et al.
    A major consequence of ductal-to-squamous lineage transition in pancreatic cancer cells is to augment inflammation, which may explain the exceptionally poor clinical outcomes of squamous-subtype tumors.

    HNF1A is a novel oncogene that regulates human pancreatic cancer stem cell properties

    Ethan V Abel et al.
    HNF1A, a risk factor gene for pancreatic ductal adenocarcinoma, is critical to maintaining pancreatic cancer stem cell properties through regulating POU5F1 (OCT4) expression, providing a novel role for HNF1A in maintenance of the disease.

    Visualization of stem cell activity in pancreatic cancer expansion by direct lineage tracing with live imaging

    Takahisa Maruno et al.
    Genetic lineage tracing approach combined with live imaging visualized the functional stem cell activity of Doublecortin-like kinase 1+ cells within pancreatic cancer in vivo.

    Lactate-mediated epigenetic reprogramming regulates formation of human pancreatic cancer-associated fibroblasts

    Tushar D Bhagat et al.
    Lactate in pancreatic cancer micro-environment can lead to TET enzyme activation and loss of DNA methylation seen in cancer associated fibroblasts.

    The origins and consequences of UPF1 variants in pancreatic adenosquamous carcinoma

    Jacob T Polaski et al.
    UPF1 mutations were reportedly present at high frequencies in a cohort of pancreatic adenosquamous carcinoma patients, but these lesions are unlikely to be functional drivers of this cancer subtype.

    Matrix-regulated integrin αvβ5 maintains α5β1-dependent desmoplastic traits prognostic of neoplastic recurrence

    Janusz Franco-Barraza et al.
    Stromal cell levels and localization of active α5β1-integrin are regulated by desmoplastic extracellular matrix control of αvβ5-integrin signaling, and predict clinical outcomes for pancreatic and renal cancer patients.

    Dissecting cell-type-specific metabolism in pancreatic ductal adenocarcinoma

    Allison N Lau et al.
    Isotope tracing into macromolecules enables functional analysis of metabolism in specific cell populations in tumors and provides insight into metabolic differences between cancer and stromal cells in their endogenous microenvironment.

    Human pancreatic cancer cell exosomes, but not human normal cell exosomes, act as an initiator in cell transformation

    Karoliina Stefanius et al.
    Exosomes secreted from pancreatic cancer cells can function as a classic initiator in the multi-step cellular transformation process.

    Transcriptional control of subtype switching ensures adaptation and growth of pancreatic cancer

    Christina R Adams et al.
    The GLI2 transcription factor is a master regulator of the aggressive basal-like subtype of pancreatic cancer and enables adaptation to oncogenic KRAS ablation.
