Research output: Contribution to journalEditorialpeer-review

Abstract

In this issue of Genes & Development, Urbach and colleagues (pp. 971-982) provide compelling data suggesting a role for LIN28 in the pathogenesis of a significant percentage of Wilms tumors. These data extend our insights in the genetics underlying Wilms tumor development and emphasize the importance of stemness and microRNA-mediated processes in the origins of these tumors.
