    SKAP2 is required for defense against K. pneumoniae infection and neutrophil respiratory burst

    Giang T Nguyen et al.
    SKAP2 is critical for hematopoietic cell protection against Klebsiella infection in mouse lungs, for full phosphorylation of Src Family Kinases, Syk, and Pyk2, and for Klebsiella-induced reactive oxygen species production.

    ATR expands embryonic stem cell fate potential in response to replication stress

    Sina Atashpaz et al.
    ATR protects stem cell genomes by activating a transcriptional response mediated by totipotency genes, conferring trophoblast differentiation potential, the derepression of which in somatic cells might favour cancer features emergence.

    Defective lytic transglycosylase disrupts cell morphogenesis by hindering cell wall de-O-acetylation in Neisseria meningitidis

    Allison Hillary Williams et al.
    Lytic transglycosylase enhances the activity of its protein partner, and its catalytic domain can be targeted to disrupt cell-wall integrity, protein partner function, and bacterial survival (Neisseria meningitidis) in hosts.

    Cytomegalovirus protein m154 perturbs the adaptor protein-1 compartment mediating broad-spectrum immune evasion

    Ivana Strazic Geljic et al.
    Single mouse cytomegalovirus protein, m154, downmodulates surface expression of numerous targets important for NK and CD8 T cell activation by perturbing adaptor protein-1 sorting and redirecting targets to lysosomal degradation.

    The role of microglia and their CX3CR1 signaling in adult neurogenesis in the olfactory bulb

    Ronen Reshef et al.
    During adult neurogenesis in the olfactory bulb, microglia regulate the elimination (pruning), formation, and maintenance of synapses on newborn neurons, contributing to the functional integrity of the olfactory bulb circuitry.

    The RNA binding protein IMP3 facilitates tumor immune escape by downregulating the stress-induced ligands ULPB2 and MICB

    Dominik Schmiedel et al.
    The well-established oncogene IMP3 impairs the interaction between cancer cells and the immune system.

    Norrin/Frizzled4 signalling in the preneoplastic niche blocks medulloblastoma initiation

    Erin A Bassett et al.
    The earliest steps of tumor initiation in the cerebellum are regulated by critical interactions between pre-tumor cells and stromal cells, which can be manipulated by targeting the Norrin/Frizzled4 signaling axis.

    Loss of p53 suppresses replication-stress-induced DNA breakage in G1/S checkpoint deficient cells

    Bente Benedict et al.
    During tumorigenesis loss of p53 not only abrogates cell cycle arrest and apoptosis, but also suppresses the induction of replication-stress-induced DNA double-stranded breaks.

    TCF7L1 promotes skin tumorigenesis independently of β-catenin through induction of LCN2

    Amy T Ku et al.
    Overexpression of TCF7L1 overrides oncogenic Ras-induced senescence, induces cell migration, and promotes growth of skin squamous cell carcinoma independently of its interaction with β-catenin.

    Tumor control via targeting PD-L1 with chimeric antigen receptor modified NK cells

    Yvette Robbins et al.
    Human NK cells engineered to express a PD-L1 chimeric antigen receptor can control murine and human tumors and reduce myeloid cells expressing high levels of PD-L1.
