    Nanotherapeutic Strategy to Overcome Chemotherapeutic Resistance of Cancer Stem-Like Cells

    Investigators report a nanotherapeutic strategy to kill CSCs in tumors using nanoparticles that were co-loaded with the differentiation-inducing agent, all-trans retinoic acid, and the chemotherapeutic drug, camptothecin.

    THBS2-Deficient Cancer Stem Cells Drive Hepatocarcinogenesis through Matrix Softness Induced Histone H3 Modifications

    The local soft spots created by liver CSCs could enhance stemness and drug resistance and provide a route of escape to facilitate hepatocellular carcinoma metastasis.

    of Glioma Stem-Like Cells with a Parthenolide Derivative ACT001 through Inhibition of AEBP1/PI3K/AKT Signaling

    The effects of ACT001 on cell survival of normal human astrocytes and patient-derived glioma stem-like cells were evaluated. RNA-Seq were performed to detect differentially expressed genes.

    Chromatin Accessibility Profiling of Glioblastoma Identifies an Invasive Cancer Stem Cell Population Associated with Lower Survival

    Researchers showed, using single-cell chromatin accessibility, that primary human glioblastomas (GBMs) harbored a heterogeneous self-renewing population whose diversity was captured in patient-derived GBMs stem cells.


    The Chick Chorioallantoic Membrane Model: A New In Vivo
    Tool to Evaluate Breast Cancer Stem Cell Activity

    The authors established a CAM-LDA assay able to rapidly reproduce tumor specificities- in particular, the ability of the small population of CSCs to form tumors.

    EGFR and Oxidative Stress-Induced PKD1 Signaling Drive Formation of DCLK1+ Pancreatic Stem Cells

    While PanIN cells expressed oncogenic KRas and have increased activity of epidermal growth factor receptor (EGFR), scientists demonstrated that in doublecortin-like kinase 1 (DCLK1+) PanIN cells EGFR signaling was not propagated to the nucleus.

    Supports Endothelial Plasticity of Glioblastoma Cells with Relevance for Glioma Progression

    The authors performed an in silico study of ADAMTS1 and endothelial markers in human gliomas, providing the basis to further assess these molecules in several primary glioblastoma-initiating cells and established glioblastoma cells with the ability to acquire an endothelial-like phenotype.

    Tumor DNA Is Detectable in Canine Histiocytic Sarcoma, Oral Malignant Melanoma, and Multicentric Lymphoma

    Researchers used droplet digital PCR or PCR for antigen receptor rearrangement, to explore tumor-specific point mutations, copy number alterations, and chromosomal rearrangements in the plasma of cancer-affected dogs. They detected circulating tumor DNA in 21/23 of histiocytic sarcoma, 2/8 of oral melanoma, and 12/13 of lymphoma cases.

    Protein Delta Mediates Glioma Stem-Like Cell Enrichment and ATP-Binding Cassette Transporter ABCA1 Activation for Temozolomide Resistance in Glioblastoma

    Scientists found that the CCAAT/Enhancer-binding protein delta (CEBPD) protein levels in glioblastoma patients were significantly increased and further contributed to temozolamide resistance by promoting glioma-like stem cell formation.

    The Role of E3 Ubiquitin Ligases in the Development and Progression of Glioblastoma

    The authors consider how knowledge of E3 ligase biology may be used for future therapeutic interventions in glioblastoma, including the use of blood-brain barrier permeable proteolysis targeting chimeras.
