Mtu1 Defects Are Correlated with Reduced Osteogenic Differentiation

Accumulating evidence has revealed that mitochondria dynamics and function regulation is essential for the successful (MSC differentiation. Researchers reported for the first time that Mtu1 defects are correlated with reduced osteogenic differentiation.

ALKBH5 Suppresses Tumor Progression via an m6A-Dependent Epigenetic Silencing of Pre-miR-181b-1/Yap Signaling Axis in Osteosarcoma

The authors explored the potential involvement of ALKBH5 in osteosarcoma and deciphered the underlying cellular/molecular mechanisms. They discovered downregulated levels of demethylase ALKBH5 were correlated with increased m6A methylation in osteosarcoma cells/tissues compared with normal osteoblasts cells/tissues.

Feasibility of Reduced-Dose Posttransplant Cyclophosphamide and Cotransplantation of Peripheral Blood Stem Cells and Umbilical Cord-Derived Mesenchymal Stem Cells for SAA

Scientists evaluated the effectiveness and safety of reduced-dose cyclophosphamide, 20 mg/kg for 13 patients in matched sibling donor hematopoietic stem cell transplantation (HSCT) cohort and 25 mg/kg for 22 patients in haplo-HSCT cohort, on days +3, +4 combined with cotransplantation of peripheral blood stem cells and human umbilical cord-derived MSCs for severe aplastic anemia (SAA).

Extracellular Vesicle-Associated Repetitive Element DNAs As Candidate Osteosarcoma Biomarkers

Osteosarcoma (OS) is the most common malignant bone tumor in children and young adults. Despite high-risk factors being identified, no test for early detection is available. This study aimed to identify circulating nucleic acid sequences associated with serum extracellular vesicle preparations at the time of OS diagnosis, as a step towards an OS early detection assay.

YAP/TAZ Inhibition Reduces Metastatic Potential of Ewing Sarcoma Cells

Investigators suggest that YAP/TAZ pathway inhibition may prevent Ewing sarcoma (EwS) cell dissemination and metastasis, justifying further preclinical development of YAP/TAZ inhibitors for EwS treatment.
