    The effects of age and systemic metabolism on anti-tumor T cell responses

    Jefte M Drijvers et al.
    A comprehensive literature review delineates the current knowledge of how systemic context, such as age and obesity, can impact CD8+ T cell function, anti-tumor immunity, and immunotherapy responsiveness.

    Protein phase separation and its role in tumorigenesis

    Shan Jiang et al.
    The current understanding of phase separation is summarized and its emerging roles in cancer are discussed in detail.

    Functional interrogation of HOXA9 regulome in MLLr leukemia via reporter-based CRISPR/Cas9 screen

    Hao Zhang et al.
    The HOXA9 reporter and genetic screens facilitated the functional interrogation of the HOXA9 regulome and advanced our understanding of the molecular regulation network in HOXA9-driven leukemia.

    Genome-wide CRISPR screens of oral squamous cell carcinoma reveal fitness genes in the Hippo pathway

    Annie Wai Yeeng Chai et al.
    Genome-wide CRISPR/Cas9 screens enable the identification of actionable vulnerabilities of oral squamous cell carcinoma, and their unique dependencies on YAP1 and WWTR1 of the Hippo pathway.

    Cytotoxic T-cells mediate exercise-induced reductions in tumor growth

    Helene Rundqvist et al.
    Exercise can induce metabolic changes that strikingly impact cytotoxic T cell function and in turn affect cancer progression.

    Replication Study: Coding-independent regulation of the tumor suppressor PTEN by competing endogenous mRNAs

    Hongyan Wang et al.
    Editors' Summary: This Replication Study did not reproduce those experiments in the original paper that it attempted to reproduce.

    Sperm-specific COX6B2 enhances oxidative phosphorylation, proliferation, and survival in human lung adenocarcinoma

    Chun-Chun Cheng et al.
    The cancer testis antigen COX6B2 enhances cytochrome c oxidase activity thereby promoting proliferation and survival in cancer cells and represents a therapeutic target for inhibiting oxidative phosphorylation selectively in tumors.

    Characterization of the mechanism by which the RB/E2F pathway controls expression of the cancer genomic DNA deaminase APOBEC3B

    Pieter A Roelofs et al.
    The antiviral and genomic DNA deaminase APOBEC3B is repressed in normal cells by PRC1.6/E2F6 and DREAM/E2F4 complexes and deregulation of this axis provides a unifying mechanism for overexpression in cancer.

    Dynamics of nevus development implicate cell cooperation in the growth arrest of transformed melanocytes

    Rolando Ruiz-Vega et al.
    Spontaneous growth arrest of transformed melanocytes (resulting in benign “moles”) does not result from cell-autonomous oncogene-induced senescence, but can be explained by collective mechanisms used in normal tissue size control.

    Repurposing of KLF5 activates a cell cycle signature during the progression from a precursor state to oesophageal adenocarcinoma

    Connor Rogerson et al.
    Genome-wide redistribution of KLF5 binding leads to activation of a cell cycle gene expression programme and proliferation control in oesophageal cancer.
