Endometrial Cancer PDX-Derived Organoids (PDXOs) and PDXs with FGFR2c Isoform Expression Are Sensitive to FGFR Inhibition

[npj Precision Oncology] Researchers reported the establishment of 16 endometrial cancer (EC) PDXOs with or without FGFR2c expression. In vitro treatment of five EC PDXOs with BGJ398 showed significant cell death in three models with FGFR2c expression.

Single-Cell Transcriptome Profiling of Primary Tumors and Paired Organoids of Pancreatobiliary Cancer

[Cancer Letters] The authors conducted scRNA-seq for paired primary tumors and organoids from one cholangiocarcinoma and two pancreatic ductal adenocarcinoma patients.

Proteome Signatures of Joint Toxicity to Arsenic (as) and Lead (Pb) in Human Brain Organoids with Optic Vesicles

[Environmental Research] Investigators utilized brain organoids with optic vesicles to systematically analyze the neurotoxicity of arsenic and lead.

Pathological Deficit of Cystatin B Impairs Synaptic Plasticity in EPM1 Human Cerebral Organoids

[Molecular Neurobiology] Scientists investigated the involvement of cystatin B in synaptic plasticity, using synaptosomes from human cerebral organoids as well as from rodents’ brain.

3D Hepatic Organoid Production from Human Pluripotent Stem Cells

[Differentiation] Researchers described the stepwise and fully 3D production of hepatic organoids from hPSCs. They optimized every differentiation step by screening for optimal concentrations and timing of differentiation signals in each differentiation step.

Bioprinting Using Organ Building Blocks: Spheroids, Organoids, and Assembloids

[Tissue Engineering Part A] Investigators discuss the expanding range of organ building blocks (OBB), presents the rapidly evolving collection of bioprinting and bioassembly methods using these OBB, and outlines the advantages, challenges, and future perspectives of employing OBB in organ printing.


Arginine Ingestion Inhibits Phagocyte Invasion in Eccentrically Contracted Rat Fast-Twitch Muscle

[Journal of Muscle Research and Cell Motility] Scientists investigated whether prior ingestion of L-arginine, a nitric oxide precursor, inhibited eccentric contraction-induced macrophage invasion.

KLF13 Promotes VSMCs Phenotypic Dedifferentiation by Directly Binding to the SM22α Promoter

[Journal of Cellular Physiology] The authors investigated the relationship between KLF13 and SM22α expression in normal and atherosclerotic plaques by bioanalysis, and observed a significant increase in KLF13 levels in the atherosclerotic plaques of both human patients and ApoE−/− mice.

Mitochondrial CypD Acetylation Promotes Endothelial Dysfunction and Hypertension

[Circulation Research] Researchers studied cyclophilin D (CypD) acetylation in patients with essential hypertension, defined a pathogenic role of CypD acetylation in deacetylation mimetic CypD-K166R mutant mice and endothelial-specific general control of amino acid synthesis 5 like 1–deficient mice using an angiotensin II model of hypertension.
