    ..Our data identify a novel Plcγ2/Tmem178 axis as a modulator of inflammatory cytokine production by monocytes/macrophages. We also find that loss of Tmem178 accentuates the pro-inflammatory responses in CSS. ..

    ..We establish a novel immunomodulatory role for Dkk1 in regulating tumor-induced immune suppression via targeting β-catenin in MDSCs. ..

    ..Taken together, our study shows that PLC?1 controls OC numbers via a CSF-1-dependent DAG/?-catenin/cyclinD1 pathway. ..
