abstract

  • In this issue of Molecular Cell, Matallanas et al. (2007) demonstrate that RASSF1A-induced apoptosis impinges on the transcriptional coactivator YAP1, whose nuclear translocation and binding to p73 result in proper execution of the cell death pathway. Indeed, RASSF1A silencing in tumors inhibits YAP1-p73-dependent apoptosis.
