MicroRNA-128-3p Enhances the Chemosensitivity of Temozolomide in Glioblastoma by Targeting c-Met and EMT

The effects of miR-128-3p and temozolomide (TMZ) on the proliferation of glioblastoma cells were investigated by cell counting kit-8. Transwell and intracerebral invasion assays were applied to determine the effects of the combination of miR-128-3p and TMZ on the invasion and migration of glioblastoma in vitro and in vivo.

Caveolin-1 Inhibits Breast Cancer Stem Cells via c-Myc-Mediated Metabolic Reprogramming

Scientists demonstrated that the downregulation of caveolin-1 usually occurred in breast cancer stem cells and was associated with a metabolic switch from mitochondrial respiration to aerobic glycolysis.

A Positive Feedback Loop between c-Myc Up-Regulation, Glycolytic Shift and Histone Acetylation Enhances Cancer Stem Cell-Like Property and Tumorigenicity of Cr(VI)-Transformed Cells

Researchers investigated the potential role and mechanism of metabolism dysregulation in chronic hexavalent chromium [Cr(VI)] carcinogenesis. It was found that Cr(VI)-transformed cells displayed glycolytic shift, which depends on the up-regulation of c-Myc.

ARS2/MAGL Signaling in Glioblastoma Stem Cells Promotes Self-Renewal and M2-Like Polarization of Tumor-Associated Macrophages

Investigators demonstrated that arsenite-resistance protein 2 (ARS2), a zinc finger protein that is essential for early mammalian development, played critical roles in glioblastoma stem cell maintenance and M2-like tumor-associated macrophage polarization.

Unbiased Proteomic Profiling Uncovers a Targetable GNAS/PKA/PP2A Axis in Small Cell Lung Cancer Stem Cells

Scientists identified protein kinase A (PKA) as an active kinase in small cell lung cancer (SCLC). Inhibition of PKA activity genetically, or pharmacologically by activation of the PP2A phosphatase, suppressed SCLC expansion in culture and in vivo.

Targeting FTO Suppresses Cancer Stem Cell Maintenance and Immune Evasion

Researchers showed that genetic depletion and pharmacological inhibition of fat mass and obesity-associated protein dramatically attenuated leukemia stem/initiating cell self-renewal and reprogrammed immune response by suppressing expression of immune checkpoint genes, especially LILRB4.

Critical Role of SOX2–IGF2 Signaling in Aggressiveness of Bladder Cancer

Researchers found SOX2 expression signifies poor recurrence-free survival and correlates with advanced pathological grade in bladder cancer. SOX2 silencing attenuated bladder cancer cell growth, while its expression promoted cancer cell survival and proliferation.
