Mowat et al. show that anti-tumor immunity in dMMR CRCs relies on recruitment and retention of systemic CD8+ T cells. This is driven by extensive genomic instability that upregulates CCL5 and CXCL10 in the CRC cells by endogenously activating cGAS/STING and type I IFN signaling.

hnRNPC prevents release of inverted-repeat Alu double-stranded RNA into the cytosol by masking cryptic splice sites. Herzner et al. found that deficiency in hnRNPC led to dysregulation of splicing and increased abundance of intronic double-stranded RNA, which together with ADAR deficiency resulted in a synergistic increase in spontaneous MDA5-dependent IFN responses.

Through scRNA-seq and ATAC-seq, Pisu et al. characterize specific lung macrophage subsets that either restrict or promote M. tuberculosis growth. Comparable macrophage populations are present in the human airways, and cells show evidence of epigenetic imprinting.

Using an immunocompetent mouse model of ZIKV infection, Cavazzoni et al. describe an immunodominant anti-NS1 humoral response characterized by autoreactive germinal center B cells, both cross-reactive and non-cross-reactive with NS1, exhibiting a paucity of somatic hypermutations, suggesting a broad breakage of self-tolerance in this viral infection model.

We tested the role of endothelial dysfunction in the development of COPD/emphysema. We found that restoration of lung endothelial cells and blockade of endothelial-derived leucine-rich α-2-glycoprotein perturbs the pathogenesis of COPD/emphysema.

The host-derived regulatory network that controls mucus secretion and thereby changes gut microbiota has not been fully illustrated. Here, we identify that Forkhead box protein O1 (Foxo1) is critical for gut commensalism and intestinal barrier integrity by regulating goblet cell function.

Vendramin et al. demonstrate that the integrated stress response in melanoma promotes cell plasticity and drives therapy resistance by boosting mitochondrial translation. Therefore, repurposing of mitoribosome-targeting antibiotics offers a salvage strategy for the treatment of patients with limited therapeutic options.

scRNA-seq analyses of microglial responses to AD pathology in patients and mouse models have provided fundamental insights but also exposed some heterogeneity and discrepancies. Here, we identify consistent microglial response patterns and discuss parallels and incongruities between humans and mice.
