Abstract

In this issue of Developmental Cell, Chew et al. (2019) show that the pioneer factor DUX4 is misexpressed in tumors, where it suppresses anti-tumor immune activity. Their findings provide a new mechanism for immune evasion in cancer and highlight the pathogenic effects of re-expressing an embryonic program in adult cells.
