Abstract

Genetic alterations in the Wnt/β-catenin/TCF-signaling pathway are commonly found in human tumors, but not in glioblastomas. In this issue of Cancer Cell, Zhang et al. report that FoxM1 mediates β-catenin nuclear translocation in glioblastoma, suggesting a novel mechanism for glioblastoma progression in the absence of conventional Wnt/β-catenin pathway activation.
