Oncogene-induced senescence (OIS) is a powerful intrinsic tumor-suppressive mechanism, arresting cell cycle progression upon oncogene-activating genomic alterations. The discovery and characterization of the senescence-associated secretome unveiled a rich additional complexity to the senescence phenotype, including extrinsic impacts on the microenvironment and engagement of the immune response. Emerging evidence suggests that senescence phenotypes vary depending on the oncogenic stimulus. Therefore, understanding the mechanisms underlying OIS and how they are subverted in cancer will provide invaluable opportunities to identify alternative strategies for treating oncogene-driven cancers.
