Membrane Cholesterol Regulates Macrophage Plasticity in Cancer

Research output: Contribution to journalShort surveypeer-review


The pro-tumoral diversion of macrophages remains an unresolved paradox of tumor immunology and a conceptual gap in the understanding of tumor biology. Goossens et al. (2019) identify a new level of cross-regulation by which tumors increase the membrane cholesterol efflux of macrophages to enhance their pro-tumoral activation in response to IL-4.
