    Multimodal cell tracking from systemic administration to tumour growth by combining gold nanorods and reporter genes

    Joan Comenge et al.
    Combined cell labelling with a bi-cistronic reporter-gene vector and gold nanorods enables short- and long-term cell tracking in vivo via multimodal imaging (multispectral optoacoustic tomography, bioluminescence, fluorescence) with high spatial resolution.

    Tumor-derived CSF-1 induces the NKG2D ligand RAE-1δ on tumor-infiltrating macrophages

    Thornton W Thompson et al.
    Macrophages respond to elevated levels of CSF-1 in tumor micro-environments by expressing a ligand for the NKG2D immunoreceptor.

    PAX3-FOXO1 transgenic zebrafish models identify HES3 as a mediator of rhabdomyosarcoma tumorigenesis

    Genevieve C Kendall et al.
    The basic helix-loop-helix transcription factor, HES3, acts downstream of the PAX3-FOXO1 fusion oncogene to impair muscle differentiation and promote tumorigenesis in rhabdomyosarcoma, a childhood muscle cancer.

    The cJUN NH2-terminal kinase (JNK) signaling pathway promotes genome stability and prevents tumor initiation

    Nomeda Girnius et al.
    Mutational inactivation of the JNK signaling pathway causes genomic instability and breast cancer development.

    MPDZ promotes DLL4-induced Notch signaling during angiogenesis

    Fabian Tetzlaff et al.
    The multiple PDZ domain protein recruits Notch ligands to Nectin-2, which increases Notch signaling activity during angiogenesis.

    Inhibitor-induced HER2-HER3 heterodimerisation promotes proliferation through a novel dimer interface

    Jeroen Claus et al.
    The clinically approved HER2 inhibitor lapatinib causes HER2 and HER3 kinase domains to dimerise in a non-canonical, symmetric orientation, providing a platform for oligomerisation and predisposing to receptor-driven cell proliferation.

    Lymphatic endothelium stimulates melanoma metastasis and invasion via MMP14-dependent Notch3 and β1-integrin activation

    Pirita Pekkonen et al.
    The melanoma cell interaction with lymphatic endothelial cells promotes melanoma metastasis by inducing a reversible switch to invasively sprouting melanoma cells.

    Wnt5a signaling induced phosphorylation increases APT1 activity and promotes melanoma metastatic behavior

    Rochelle Shirin Sadeghi et al.
    Phosphorylation of serine residues 209 and 210 on APT1 increases its depalmitoylating activity, promoting Wnt5a mediated melanoma cell invasion.
