    Non-invasive detection of urothelial cancer through the analysis of driver gene mutations and aneuploidy

    Simeon U Springer et al.
    The creation of a non-invasive assay for detecting urothelial cancer could have a profound impact on how we find and treat the disease.

    YAP drives cutaneous squamous cell carcinoma formation and progression

    Zoé Vincent-Mistiaen et al.
    High levels of nuclear YAP are sufficient to drive squamous cell carincoma formation and frequently also drive progression to spindle cell carcinoma by promoting epithelial-to-mesenchymal transition after tissue damage.

    Chromosome mis-segregation and cytokinesis failure in trisomic human cells

    Joshua M Nicholson et al.
    Aneuploidy can cause chromosome mis-segregation and specific cellular phenotypes driven by expression of genes on the extra chromosome.

    Ankyrin-B is a PI3P effector that promotes polarized α5β1-integrin recycling via recruiting RabGAP1L to early endosomes

    Fangfei Qu et al.
    Ankyrin-B – through interactions with PI3P lipids, dynactin and RabGAP1L – functions as a critical node in the protein circuitry underlying polarized recycling of α5β1-integrin to enable haptotaxis along fibronectin gradients.

    LAST, a c-Myc-inducible long noncoding RNA, cooperates with CNBP to promote CCND1 mRNA stability in human cells

    Limian Cao et al.
    A c-Myc-transcribed long noncoding RNA namely LAST (LncRNA-assisted stabilization of transcripts) collaborates with a cellular factor CNBP to promote the stability of CCND1/cyclin D1 mRNA post-transcriptionally, ensuring the proper G1/Sphase transition of the cell cycle.

    Synergistic interactions with PI3K inhibition that induce apoptosis

    Yaara Zwang et al.
    A geneome-scale shRNA screen identifies five genes whose suppression promotes cell death upon PI3K inhibition both in vitro and in vivo, thus suggesting potential combination therapies involving PI3K inhibition.

    A functional link between the co-translational protein translocation pathway and the UPR

    Rachel Plumb et al.
    Ire1α co-opts the Sec61 translocon channel to efficiently cleave its mRNA substrates during endoplasmic reticulum stress conditions.

    The MR-Base platform supports systematic causal inference across the human phenome

    Gibran Hemani et al.
    Compiling public datasets into a single, centralised repository and linking directly to analytical software completely transforms the scale and scope of causal inference across the phenome.
