Sox9 Controls Self-Renewal of Oncogene Targeted Cells and Links Tumor Initiation and Invasion

Bhaskar Chanda Stem Cell Using mouse models of BCC, Larsimont et al. show that Sox9 is required for self-renewal of oncogene-expressing cells and BCC formation. Transcriptional profiling combined with ChIP sequencing uncovered a cancer-specific gene network regulated by Sox9 that promotes stemness, represses differentiation, and induces ECM and cytoskeleton remodeling required for tumor invasion.
