    Single-PanIN-seq unveils that ARID1A deficiency promotes pancreatic tumorigenesis by attenuating KRAS-induced senescence

    Shou Liu et al.
    ARID1A deficiency in SWI/SNF complex promotes pancreatic tumor development by upregulating ALDH protein levels to effectively reduce cellular reactive oxygen species levels, leading to the significant attenuation of oncogenic KRAS-induced senescence.

    KSR1- and ERK-dependent translational regulation of the epithelial-to-mesenchymal transition

    Chaitra Rao et al.
    A key Ras-driven signaling pathway stimulates the preferential translation of an effector, EPSTI1, that is both necessary and sufficient for the epithelial-to-mesenchymal transition-like phenotype in colorectal cancer cells.

    A systematic CRISPR screen reveals an IL-20/IL20RA-mediated immune crosstalk to prevent the ovarian cancer metastasis

    Jia Li et al.
    A genome-wide in vivo CRISPR screen identifies an IL-20/IL20RA-mediated crosstalk between peritoneum mesothelial cells and ovarian cancer cells that promotes the formation of M1-like macrophages to prevent ovarian cancer metastasis.

    Phenotypic plasticity underlies local invasion and distant metastasis in colon cancer

    Andrea Sacchetti et al.
    Colon cancer cells disseminate and colonize distant organ sites along the invasion-metastasis cascade by transiently activating intermediate epithelial to mesenchymal transition states through distinct transcriptional trajectories.

    A non-genetic, cell cycle-dependent mechanism of platinum resistance in lung adenocarcinoma

    Alvaro Gonzalez Rajal et al.
    Platinum chemotherapy resistance is a complex process involving multiple signalling pathways and a novel, non-genetic, cell cycle-dependent mechanism that promotes tumour regrowth and highlights potential complications for combination therapies in human lung adenocarcinoma.

    PHAROH lncRNA regulates Myc translation in hepatocellular carcinoma via sequestering TIAR

    Allen T Yu et al.
    PHAROH lncRNA is upregulated in hepatocellular carcinoma and functions by sequestering the translational suppressor TIAR via a 71 nucleotide hairpin to regulate c-MYC translation.
