Insulin receptor deletion in T regs improves metabolic outcomes in models of diet- and age-induced obesity and hyperinsulinemia. Direct effects of hyperinsulinemia on T regs is a previously unknown mechanism controlling T reg function in metabolic syndrome.

Zhou et al. characterize a critical role of CLK3 on purine metabolism in cholangiocarcinoma (CCA). Overexpressed or mutated CLK3 promotes CCA progression in vitro and in vivo. Therefore, CLK3 may serve as a biomarker and potential drug target for CCA.

Type 1 conventional dendritic cells are progressively and systemically dysregulated during pancreatic carcinogenesis, subject to semimaturation and IL-6–driven apoptosis. Yet, CD40 agonist synergizes with Flt3L to rescue cDC1 abundance and maturation, enabling a return to full CD8+ T cell priming.

NKG2D is a danger sensor expressed on different subsets of innate and adaptive lymphocytes. This study demonstrates how NKG2D enforces proinflammatory features of Th1 and Th17 cells and promotes inflammation in vivo, identifying NKG2D as an important target for the amelioration of Th1/ Th17-mediated inflammatory diseases.

This study demonstrates a novel signaling pathway regulating pancreatic cancer cachexia. These results establish that the Sirt1–Nox4 signaling axis plays an essential role in the manifestation of pancreatic cancer cachexia, and inhibition of this axis abrogates the cachexia syndrome.
Brief Definitive Report
Sohinee Bhattacharyya, Chet Oon, Aayush Kothari, Wesley Horton, Jason Link, Rosalie C. Sears, Mara H. Sherman
Here Bhattacharyya et al. show that MYC is a molecular point of convergence for microenvironmental and cell-autonomous signals in RAS-transformed pancreatic cancer cells. They identify cancer-associated fibroblast–derived FGF1 as a critical paracrine regulator of MYC, and a novel link between the pancreatic tumor microenvironment and oncogenic transcription.

In this study, Hussain et al. demonstrate that cancer-associated fibroblasts (CAFs) in high-grade serous ovarian cancer are heterogeneous, that CAF state drives cancer aggressiveness and patient outcomes, and that TCF21 is a master regulator of CAF state.
