Translational Control of Immune Evasion in Cancer

Shruthy Suresh, Kathryn A. O'Donnell

Research output: Contribution to journalShort surveypeer-review


Mechanisms that control translation play important roles in tumor progression and metastasis. Emerging evidence has revealed that dysregulated translation also impacts immune evasion in response to cellular or oncogenic stress. Here, we summarize current knowledge regarding the translational control of immune checkpoints and implications for cancer immunotherapies.
