In this issue of Cancer Cell, Ooms and colleagues show that the lipid phosphatase PIPP/INPP5J, frequently inactivated in triple-negative breast cancers, functions as a tumor suppressor by specifically modulating the activity of AKT1 in the context of oncogenic PI3K signaling, leading to inhibition of metastatic dissemination.
