An Inflammatory Situation: SOX2 and STAT3 Cooperate in Squamous Cell Carcinoma Initiation.

Publication TypeJournal Article
AuthorsBass, AJ, and Wang TC
AbstractAlthough SOX2 has been identified as a squamous cell carcinoma oncogene, mechanisms of SOX2-induce oncogenesis have remained elusive. In this issue of Cell Stem Cell, Li et al. (2013) show that SOX2 synergizes with inflammation-induced STAT3 activation to transform basal progenitors and initiate squamous cell carcinoma.
