    Ral GTPases promote breast cancer metastasis by controlling biogenesis and organ targeting of exosomes

    Shima Ghoroghi et al.
    A combination of animal models reveal how the molecular mechanisms of exosome secretion (RalA/B-dependent) are linked to their cargo content and their function in breast cancer pre-metastatic niche formation.

    Interplay of opposing fate choices stalls oncogenic growth in murine skin epithelium

    Madeline Sandoval et al.
    Skin epithelium can tolerate oncogene-expressing clones through a novel cellular mechanism of inter-clonal competition between renewing progenitors along the clone's edge and differentiating progenitors within the clone's core.

    Re-expression of SMARCA4/BRG1 in small cell carcinoma of ovary, hypercalcemic type (SCCOHT) promotes an epithelial-like gene signature through an AP-1-dependent mechanism

    Krystal Ann Orlando et al.
    BRG1 loss drives initiation and progression in human cancers through changes in specific differentiation programs in an AP-1-dependent manner.
