    Co-regulation and function of FOXM1/RHNO1 bidirectional genes in cancer

    Carter J Barger et al.
    FOXM1 is co-expressed with its bidirectional gene partner RHNO1, and the two genes promote DNA repair, cell growth and survival, and chemotherapy resistance in ovarian cancer.

    Persistent effects of pair bonding in lung cancer cell growth in monogamous Peromyscus californicus

    Asieh Naderi et al.
    Monogamous rodents of the genus Peromyscus, upon disruption of pair bonds, acquire increased oncogenic activity.

    An NKX2-1/ERK/WNT feedback loop modulates gastric identity and response to targeted therapy in lung adenocarcinoma

    Rediet Zewdu et al.
    Genetically engineered murine models reveal novel mechanisms of cell identity regulation in lung cancer and provide insights into the complex interplay between lineage specifiers and oncogenic signaling pathways in this disease.

    Post-transcriptional repression of circadian component CLOCK regulates cancer-stemness in murine breast cancer cells

    Takashi Ogino et al.
    The expression of the major circadian component CLOCK is a key regulator of stemness in breast cancer cells, which can be a novel strategy for breast cancer treatment.

    Defective apoptotic cell contractility provokes sterile inflammation, leading to liver damage and tumour suppression

    Linda Julian et al.
    In the absence of ROCK1 activation by caspases, apoptotic cells don’t undergo typical morphological changes, leading to sterile inflammation in the liver that increases tissue damage and suppresses tumor formation.
