    Fine-tuned repression of Drp1-driven mitochondrial fission primes a ‘stem/progenitor-like state’ to support neoplastic transformation

    Brian Spurlock et al.
    A mitochondria-based 'priming' of stemness happens by fine-tuned repression of the level or activity of the master regulator of mitochondrial fission, Drp1, which supports carcinogen-induced transformation in a keratinocyte model.

    Lipid droplets and ferritin heavy chain: a devilish liaison in human cancer cell radioresistance

    Luca Tirinato et al.
    Lipid Droplet accumulation is a fingerprint shared by different human cancer radioresistant cells and their biogenesis strongly depend on FTH1 presence.

    Mutation analysis links angioimmunoblastic T-cell lymphoma to clonal hematopoiesis and smoking

    Shuhua Cheng et al.
    Comparative analysis establishes genetic links among angioimmunoblastic T-cell lymphoma (AITL), clonal hematopoiesis, and concomitant hematologic malignancies, and provides insights into the cell of origin, etiology, and biomarker discovery for AITL.

    Multi-syndrome, multi-gene risk modeling for individuals with a family history of cancer with the novel R package PanelPRO

    Gavin Lee et al.
    A comprehensive package for pedigree-based risk modeling, with a highly optimized computational back-end, extends existing models beyond syndrome-specific approaches and incorporates data from panel studies by allowing for an arbitrary number of gene and syndrome associations.

    Innate immune activation by checkpoint inhibition in human patient-derived lung cancer tissues

    Teresa WM Fan et al.
    Pembrolizumab activates innate immune metabolism and function in primary human non-small cell lung cancer, whereas Pembrolizumab and beta-glucan synergize in enhancing immune metabolism and tumoridical action in brain-metastasized lung cancer.

    YAP and TAZ are transcriptional co-activators of AP-1 proteins and STAT3 during breast cellular transformation

    Lizhi He et al.
    YAP and TAZ, the ultimate targets of the Hippo signaling pathway, are transcriptional co-activators of AP-1 proteins and STAT3 through which they are important for breast cellular transformation.
