Exciting research from the Kops and van Rheenen labs now published in Nature
The research team of Oncode Investigator Geert Kops (Hubrecht Institute) reports that the 3D location of chromosomes in the interphase cell nucleus affects how likely they are to be incorrectly transmitted to daughter cells. The results of their study highlight yet another functional role of 3D genome organization in cells. Oncode Investigator Jacco van Rheenen (NKI) and his research team filmed stem cells in the colon and small intestine and found different levels of stem cell regulation, which has a major impact on the onset of cancer.

Prostate cancer hijacks tumor cell biorhythm to evade hormone therapy
Hormone therapy is successful at keeping metastatic prostate cancer under control, but eventually the tumor cells become resistant to it. An unexpected potential solution has now emerged in medicines not designed to fight cancer, but to target proteins that regulate a cell’s circadian rhythm. Oncode Investigator Wilbert Zwart and others publish about this discovery in cancer discovery today.
