    AKT Blocks SIK1-Mediated Repression of STAT3 to Promote Breast Tumorigenesis

    Mass spectrometry–based analyses demonstrated that salt-inducible kinase 1 (SIK1) bound AKT and underwent AKT-mediated phosphorylation, which compromised SIK1 tumor-suppressive functions.

    Targeting DCLK1 Attenuates Tumor Stemness and Evokes Antitumor Immunity in Triple-Negative Breast Cancer by Inhibiting IL-6/STAT3 Signaling

    Investigators explored the impacts of doublecortin-like kinase 1 (DCLK1) on tumor cells as well as their immune microenvironment in triple-negative breast cancer (TNBC) and potential therapeutic strategies for TNBC patients with high DCLK1 expression.

    Aneuploid Subtypes of Circulating Tumor Cells (CTCs) and Circulating Tumor-Derived Endothelial Cells (CTECs) Predict Overall Survival of Advanced Lung Cancer

    Fifty-two patients with advanced lung cancer were enrolled in this study. Using the subtraction enrichment-immunofluorescence in situ hybridization system, CTCs and CTECs derived from these patients were identified.
