Cover: The cover illustrates Model of the regulation of GLI1, the last and critical step of the Hedgehog pathway, by oncogenes and tumor suppressors. Sequential oncogene activation and loss of tumor suppressors activates GLI1 to higher and higher levels, leading to enhanced tumor growth and stem cell self-renewal. Increasing GLI1 activity levels may drive tumor progression. The model is laid over an image of the localization of GLI1 mRNA in a human metastatic melanoma patient sample by RNA in situ hybridization. Note the presence of the cytoplasmic signal (blue) in the large melanoma cells
forming typical grape bunch-like structures. See the article by Stecca and Ruiz i Altaba in this issue and Stecca et al., 2007 PNAS for additional melanoma data.
