Interactions between tumor cells and the surrounding microenvironment contribute to tumor progression, metastasis and recurrence. This webcast will present an oncogene-associated, multicolor reporter mouse model, the Red2Onco system, that allows differential tracing of mutant and wild-type cells in the same tissue.
Applying this system to the small intestine revealed that oncogene-expressing mutant crypts alter the cellular organization of neighboring wild-type crypts, driving accelerated clonal drift in the intestinal epithelium. Comparative single-cell transcriptomic analysis of the Red2Onco system showed how environmental changes in the shared niche, mediated by direct and indirect signals from oncogene-expressing clones, promote the accelerated differentiation of wild-type stem cells, favoring tumorigenesis.Discover:
- What happens if an oncogene is activated in a single intestinal stem cell?
- How a single oncogenic stem cell influences its microenvironment?
- Can we control this oncogene-driven remodeling effect?
