TOP STORY  


Biologists Find That Restoring the Gene for Cancer Protein p53 Slows Spread of Advanced Tumors 
In a new study, cancer biologists show that restoring the protein p53’s function in mice with lung cancer has no effect early in tumor development, but restoring the function later on could prevent more advanced tumors from spreading throughout the body.

CURRENT PUBLICATIONS (Ranked by Impact Factor of the Journal)

Stage-Specific Sensitivity to p53 Restoration During Lung Cancer Progression
Data suggest that restoration of pathways important in tumor progression, as opposed to initiation, may lead to incomplete tumor regression due to the stage-heterogeneity of tumor cell populations. [Nature]
 
Rewiring of Genetic Networks in Response to DNA Damage
Using an approach called differential epistasis mapping, researchers have discovered widespread changes in genetic interaction among yeast kinases, phosphatases, and transcription factors as the cell responds to DNA damage. [Science]
 
Hybrid Pore Formation by Directed Insertion of Alpha Hemolysin into Solid-State Nanopores
Both biological pores and solid-state nanopores have significant limitations: alpha hemolysin (alpha-HL) is difficult to integrate because it relies on delicate lipid bilayers for mechanical support, and the fabrication of solid-state nanopores with precise dimensions remains challenging. Here researchers show that these limitations may be overcome by inserting a single alpha-HL pore into a solid-state nanopore. [Nat Nanotechnol]
 
Reprogramming of Human Primary Somatic Cells by OCT4 and Chemical Compounds
Researchers report a small molecule cocktail that enables reprogramming of human primary somatic cells to induced pluripotent stem cells with exogenous expression of only OCT4. [Cell Stem Cell]

Researchers conclude that Bmi-1 is a crucial regulator of self-renewal in adult prostate cells and plays important roles in prostate cancer initiation and progression. [Cell Stem Cell]

Regulation of Hematopoietic Stem Cells by Their Mature Progeny
Researchers demonstrate that the megakaryocytosis and increased platelet mass in mice with mutations in the Myb or p300 genes causes reduced circulating thrombopoietin (TPO) concentration and TPO starvation of the stem cell compartment, which is exacerbated because these cells additionally exhibit impaired responsiveness to TPO. [Proc Natl Acad Sci U S A]
 
Astrocyte Elevated Gene-1 Induces Protective Autophagy
The present study reveals a previously unknown aspect of AEG-1 function by identifying it as a potential regulator of protective autophagy, an important feature of AEG-1 that may contribute to its tumor-promoting properties. [Proc Natl Acad Sci U S A]

MicroRNA miR-125b Causes Leukemia
Researchers show that overexpression of miR-125b is sufficient both to shorten the latency of BCR-ABL-induced leukemia and to independently induce leukemia in a mouse model. [Proc Natl Acad Sci U S A]
 
Deciphering the Code for Retroviral Integration Target Site Selection
Researchers describe a supermarker that identifies chromosomal features highly favored for retroviral integration, provides clues to the mechanism by which retrovirus integration sites are selected, and offers a tool for predicting cell-type specific proto-oncogene activation by retroviruses.
