    STRIPAK directs PP2A activity toward MAP4K4 to promote oncogenic transformation of human cells

    Jong Wook Kim et al.
    ST recruitment of STRIPAK facilitates PP2A-mediated dephosphorylation of MAP4K4 and induces cell transformation highlighting that STRIPAK complex plays a key role in defining PP2A specificity and activity.

    PCK1 and DHODH drive colorectal cancer liver metastatic colonization and hypoxic growth by promoting nucleotide synthesis

    Norihiro Yamaguchi et al.
    The gluconeogenic enzyme PCK1 and pyrimidine nucleotide biosynthetic enzyme DHODH drive hypoxic pyrimidine nucleotide biosynthesis and liver metastatic colonization in colorectal cancer, which is therapeutically exploitable by DHODH pharmacologic inhibition.

    T-cell co-stimulation in combination with targeting FAK drives enhanced anti-tumor immunity

    Marta Canel et al.
    Cancer cell expression of the T-cell co-stimulatory molecule CD80, or treatment with agonistic antibodies targeting the T-cell co-stimulatory receptors OX-40 or 4-1BB, enhances the anti-tumor activity of FAK inhibition.

    TLE3 loss confers AR inhibitor resistance by facilitating GR-mediated human prostate cancer cell growth

    Sander AL Palit et al.
    A mechanistic link between TLE3 loss and glucocorticoid receptor-mediated androgen receptor inhibitor resistance supports the rationale to target GR during anti-hormonal treatment in castrate-resistant prostate cancer.

    Regulation of zebrafish melanocyte development by ligand-dependent BMP signaling

    Alec K Gramann et al.
    The oncogenic role ligand-dependent BMP signaling plays in suppressing differentiation in melanoma is a reiteration of its physiological roles during melanocyte development.

    MYC and Twist1 cooperate to drive metastasis by eliciting crosstalk between cancer and innate immunity

    Renumathy Dhanasekaran et al.
    MYC and Twist1 drive metastasis by a novel non-cell-autonomous transcriptional mechanism of eliciting a cytokinome that mediates the crosstalk between cancer cells and macrophages, and its therapeutic blockade inhibits metastasis.

    Inflammation-induced IgE promotes epithelial hyperplasia and tumour growth

    Mark David Hayes et al.
    Natural IgE supports epithelial cell growth and differentiation in healthy skin, but during chronic tissue inflammation, IgE drives tumour outgrowth of epithelial cells harbouring oncogenic mutations.
