Reduced Adhesion of Aged Intestinal Stem Cells Contributes to an Accelerated Clonal Drift

[Life Science Alliance] Tracking of clonal dynamics by clonal tracing revealed that aged crypts drift into monoclonality substantially faster than young ones.

Surrozen Initiates Dosing in Phase I Clinical Trial of SZN-1326 for Moderate to Severe Ulcerative Colitis

[Surrozen, Inc.] Surrozen, Inc. announced that the first subject has been dosed in its three-part Phase I clinical trial to evaluate SZN-1326 for the potential treatment of moderate to severe ulcerative colitis.

RNA Splicing Is a Key Mediator of Tumour Cell Plasticity and a Therapeutic Vulnerability in Colorectal Cancer

[Nature Communications] The authors identified dysregulated RNA splicing as a key driver of tumour cell dedifferentiation in colorectal cancer.

Antisense Transcription from Lentiviral Gene Targeting Linked to an Integrated Stress Response in Colorectal Cancer Cells

[Molecular Therapy-Nucleic Acids] Investigators explored a gene targeting approach to deplete ephrinB2 from colorectal cancer cells using an inducible lentiviral vector.

HDAC5, Negatively Regulated by miR-148a-3p, Promotes Colon Cancer Cell Migration

[Cancer Science] To clarify the role of Class IIa Histone deacetylases (HDACs) in the metastasis of colon adenocarcinoma, investigators used the Class IIa HDAC inhibitor TMP269 and found that it effectively inhibited the migration ability of colon adenocarcinoma cells.

IFN-α/β-Mediated NK2R Expression Is Related to the Malignancy of Colon Cancer Cells

[Cancer Science] Researchers found that high neurokinin 2 receptor (NK2R) gene expression was correlated with the poor survival of colorectal cancer patients, and IFN-α/β stimulation significantly enhanced NK2R gene expression level of colon cancer cells in a JAK1/2-dependent manner.

SFMBT1 Facilitates Colon Cancer Cell Metastasis and Drug Resistance Combined with HMG20A

[Cell Death Discovery] The role of Scm-like with four malignant brain tumor domains 1 (SFMBT1) in the migration, proliferation and invasion of colorectal cancer or resistance to 5-fluorouracil was determined using scratch assay, colony formation and Transwell assay.

The OmpA of Commensal Escherichia coli of CRC Patients Affects Apoptosis of the HCT116 Colon Cancer Cell Line

[BMC Microbiology] Scientists analyzed the effect of the Outer membrane protein A (OmpA) protein on the expression of the four genes related to apoptosis in the HCT116 colon cancer cell line.

A Novel Nanobody as Therapeutics Target for EGFR-Positive Colorectal Cancer Therapy: Exploring the Effects of the Nanobody on SW480 Cells Using Proteomics Approach

[Proteome Science] Researchers determined the effect of cell-penetrable nanobody on cell viability and proteomic profile in epidermal growth factor receptor (EGFR)-positive human colorectal cancer cell lines.

ARL2 Is Required for Homologous Recombination Repair and Colon Cancer Stem Cell Survival

[Febs Open Bio] ADP-ribosylation factor-like protein 2 (ARL2) was expressed at relatively low levels in K-RAS active colon cancer cells, but its expression was induced in cancer stem cells.

Proteomics of Post-translational Modifications in Colorectal Cancer: Discovery of New Biomarkers

[Biochimica et Biophysica Acta-Reviews On Cancer] The authors discuss the general strategies for proteomic profiling of several key post-translational modifications (PTMs), and summarize the recent applications of these methods to explore the potential roles of the PTMs in colorectal cancer.

NOD2 Signaling in CD11c+ Cells Is Critical for Humoral Immune Responses during Oral Vaccination and Maintaining the Gut Microbiome

[Scientific Reports] To better classify the kinetics of mucosal vaccination with recombinant Lactobacillus acidophilus, investigators utilized mice harboring knockouts of NOD2 expression specifically within CD11c+ cells.
