    TAZ-CAMTA1 and YAP-TFE3 alter the TAZ/YAP transcriptome by recruiting the ATAC histone acetyltransferase complex

    Nicole Merritt et al.
    The C terminal fusion partners of TAZ-CAMTA1, YAP-TFE3 and potentially other TAZ/YAP fusion proteins in cancer recruit epigenetic modifiers that modulate a baseline TEAD-based transcriptional program.

    Endogenous p53 expression in human and mouse is not regulated by its 3′UTR

    Sibylle Mitschka, Christine Mayr
    The endogenous 3′UTR does not regulate TP53 mRNA or protein level and the 3′UTR is repressive when used alone in reporters, but addition of the coding region has a dominant repressive effect.

    Limited inhibition of multiple nodes in a driver network blocks metastasis

    Ali Ekrem Yesilkanal et al.
    Low-dose treatment targeting multiple pathways of a pro-metastatic signaling network reduces the metastatic output of heterogeneous tumors while minimizing compensatory network activation.

    Signaling levels mold the RAS mutation tropism of urethane

    Siqi Li, Christopher M Counter
    Genetic analyses reveal that the tropism towards specific Kras driver mutations during urethane carcinogenesis appears to arise from the selection of an oncogenic mutation in normal cells that imparts a narrow window of signaling conducive for tumorigenesis.

    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.
