The pathogenesis of well-differentiated and dedifferentiated liposarcoma is poorly understood. We recently reported Kruppel-like factor 6 (KLF6) as a histone H3 lysine 9 trimethyl (H3K9me3)-regulated and differentially expressed transcription factor serving a previously unappreciated tumor suppressor role in liposarcoma. Mechanistically, KLF6 may drive adipocytic differentiation through increased expression of known regulators of adipogenesis.
