Tumorigenesis is a complex and poorly understood process in which oncogenes can activate competing proapoptotic and proneoplastic programs. A recent paper in Cancer Cell demonstrates a dual role of the MTDH-SND1 complex in suppressing the apoptotic response and promoting breast cancer development, suggesting a new therapeutic avenue.
