    Collective forces of tumor spheroids in three-dimensional biopolymer networks

    Christoph Mark et al.
    The forces that multicellular tumor aggregates exert on their environment lead to non-linear, scale-invariant tissue deformations far away from the tumor, which can be exploited to quantify its collective contractility.

    Cytotoxic T cells swarm by homotypic chemokine signalling

    Jorge Luis Galeano Niño et al.
    Killer T cells swarm around tumour targets by accelerating the recruitment of distant T cells, which upon arrival and target engagement augment the chemotactic signal in a positive feedback loop.

    Transdifferentiation mediated tumor suppression by the endoplasmic reticulum stress sensor IRE-1 in C. elegans

    Mor Levi-Ferber et al.
    IRE-1 manipulates tumor cell identity to restore apoptosis sensitivity and suppress an aggressive germline tumor in C. elegans.

    Tissue-autonomous immune response regulates stress signaling during hypertrophy

    Robert Krautz et al.
    The immune effector Drosomycin buffers stress signaling in hypertrophic salivary glands to inhibit their disintegration, detection by the cellular immune response, and promotes further overgrowth.

    Increasing Notch signaling antagonizes PRC2-mediated silencing to promote reprograming of germ cells into neurons

    Stefanie Seelk et al.
    Increased Notch signaling enhances germ cell reprograming in C. elegans by antagonizing PRC2-mediated repression, which results in the activation of UTX-1 and other reprograming-promoting genes.

    A positive feedback loop between Myc and aerobic glycolysis sustains tumor growth in a Drosophila tumor model

    Kenneth Kin Lam Wong et al.
    Specific molecular links that orchestrate growth signals and metabolic reprogramming to achieve tumorigenesis are identified as potential metabolic vulnerabilities in cancer treatment.

    Structural diversity of oligomeric β-propellers with different numbers of identical blades

    Evgenia Afanasieva et al.
    A protein fragment forms different folded structures when amplified to different copy numbers within a single polypeptide chain.

    Tumor-promoting function of apoptotic caspases by an amplification loop involving ROS, macrophages and JNK in Drosophila

    Ernesto Pérez et al.
    The oncogenic RasV12 keeps cells mutant for the tumor suppressor scribble in an undead-like condition, which is required for an amplification loop that promotes tumorigenesis.

    Antagonistic control of Caenorhabditis elegans germline stem cell proliferation and differentiation by PUF proteins FBF-1 and FBF-2

    Xiaobo Wang et al.
    Complementary effects of FBF-1 and FBF-2 on germline stem cell dynamics result from their distinct cooperation with mRNA deadenylase resulting in the opposite effects on the shared target mRNAs.

    Drosophila TRIM32 cooperates with glycolytic enzymes to promote cell growth

    Simranjot Bawa et al.
    TRIM32-mediated glycolytic flux generates precursors that are utilized for biomass production in non-dividing muscle, brain and tumor cells, demonstrating a universal metabolic function for TRIM32 in cell growth.
