    Epigenetic Control Over Cell-Intrinsic Immune Response Antagonizes Self-Renewal in Acute Myeloid Leukemia

    Site-specific phosphorylation of PHF8 orchestrated epigenetic changes that upregulate cytosolic RNA sensors, particularly the TRIM25-RIG-I-IFIT5 axis, thereby triggering the cellular IFN-I response-differentiation-apoptosis network.

    Hypoxia-Induced TREM1 Promotes Mesenchymal-Like States of Glioma Stem Cells via Alternatively Activating Tumor-Associated Macrophages

    Investigators showed that the triggering receptor expressed on myeloid cells-1 (TREM1) preferentially expressed by M2-like tumor-associated macrophages and induced glioma stem cells into mesenchymal-like states by modulating the secretion of TGFβ2.
