Abstract

In a recent paper in Cell, Oricchio et al. identify EPHA7 as a tumor suppressor gene residing in the 6q-deleted region in follicular lymphoma. A truncated EPHA7(TR) isoform is secreted by normal B cells, inhibits EPHA2 signaling, and, as a secreted tumor suppressor protein, has potential as a targeted therapeutic polypeptide.
