In BRAFV600E melanomas, RAF and MEK inhibitors efficiently block oncogenic signaling, but persister cells emerge. Scientists showed that persister cells escaped drug-induced cell-cycle arrest via brief, sporadic ERK pulses generated by transmembrane receptors and growth factors operating in an autocrine/paracrine manner.

Scientists demonstrated that resistance to venetoclax with azacitidine occurs via upregulation of fatty acid oxidation, which occurs either due to RAS pathway mutations or as a compensatory adaptation in relapsed disease.

Dysregulation of intestinal epithelial cells(IEC) homeostasis likely contributes to the development of intestinal inflammation and intestinal cancer. The roles of receptor protein tyrosine kinases and their downstream signaling molecules such as Src family kinases, Ras, and mammalian target of rapamycin in homeostatic regulation of IEC turnover have recently been evaluated.
Researchers determined that the Siah2 E3 ubiquitin ligase functions in a coincidence detection circuit linking responses to the Shh mitogen and the ECM to control cerebellar granule neurons germinal zone occupancy.

The authors observed that ras-association domain family protein1 isoform A (RASSF1A) expression inhibited the malignant phenotypes of nasopharyngeal carcinoma (NPC) cells. Stable silencing of RASSF1A in NPC cell lines induced self-renewal properties and tumorigenicity in vivo/in vitro and the acquisition of an invasive phenotype in vitro.

Tim-3 was overexpressed in vascular endothelial HMVECs and HUVECs and in vitro assays were used to determine that Tim-3 promoted cell proliferation, migration, invasion and tube formation through activating cyclin D1, Ras homolog gene family member A and vascular endothelial growth factor receptor 2.
Dysregulated lncRNAs in hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) were identified through circlncRNAnet and GEPIA bioinformatics tools. Biological function of LL22NC03-N14H11.1 in HCC was detected by CCK-8 assay, flow cytometry analysis, transwell invasion, and wound healing assays.

Investigators demonstrated that knockout of RAB6 inhibited pulmonary fibrosis, oxidative stress, and type 2 alveolar epithelial cells (AEC2) cell death in fine particulate matter (PM2.5)-injured mice. In addition, knockout of RAB6 decreased Dickkopf 1 autocrine and activated proliferation, self-renewal, and wnt/β-catenin signaling of PM2.5-injured AEC2 cells.
