Spontaneous DNA damage propels tumorigenicity

I. Vitale, G. Kroemer

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


High levels of endogenously generated DNA damage drive oncogenesis, sustain malignant progression and increase therapy resistance. In a paper recently published in Cell Research, Liu and colleagues added additional insights into this topic by uncovering a novel intrinsic source of double-strand breaks that fosters the aggressiveness and stemness of malignant cells.
