G-CSF Secreted by Mutant IDH1 Glioma Stem Cells Abolishes Myeloid Cell Immunosuppression and Enhances the Efficacy of Immunotherapy

The authors showed that the efficacy of immune-stimulatory gene therapy was enhanced in isocitrate-dehydrogenase 1 (mIDH1) gliomas, due to the reprogramming of the myeloid cells’ compartment infiltrating the tumor microenvironment.

Single-Cell RNA Sequencing Reveals Cell Heterogeneity and Transcriptome Profile of Breast Cancer Lymph Node Metastasis

Scientists identified nine cancer cell subclusters including CD44+/ALDH2+/ALDH6A1+ breast CSCs, which had a copy-number variants profile similar to that of normal breast tissue.

Atypical Cyclin P Regulates Cancer Cell Stemness through Activation of the WNT Pathway

Cell line-derived spheroids, ex vivo intestinal organoid cultures and induced-pluripotent stem cells were used to investigate the role of atypical cyclin P in stemness.

DCLK1-Short Splice Variant Promotes Esophageal Squamous Cell Carcinoma Progression Via the MAPK/ERK/MMP2 Pathway

Researchers found that the expression of DCLK1 isoform 4 (DCLK1-S) was significantly increased in human esophageal squamous cell carcinoma tissues and associated with malignant progression and poor prognosis.

Oncogenic Activity of Glucocorticoid Receptor β Is Controlled by Ubiquitination-Dependent Interaction with USP49 in Glioblastoma Cells

By establishing a C-terminal deletion mutant, scientists determined that glucocorticoid receptor β (GRβ) can be ubiquitinated. They also found that its C-terminal was essential for this ubiquitination

Gadd45g Initiates Embryonic Stem Cell Differentiation and Inhibits Breast Cell Carcinogenesis

Researchers showed that the transcripts of Gadd45 family genes, including Gadd45a, Gadd45b, and Gadd45g, were gradually increased upon mouse ESC differentiation. Upregulation of Gadd45 members decreased cell proliferation and induced endodermal and trophectodermal lineages.

Exosomes Secreted by M2 Macrophages Promote Cancer Stemness of Hepatocellular Carcinoma via the miR-27a-3p/TXNIP Pathways

Investigators explored the role of M2 exosomal miR-27a-3p in the cancer stemness of hepatocellular carcinoma via regulating thioredoxin-interacting protein (TXNIP).

SETD8 Induces Stemness and Epithelial–Mesenchymal Transition of Pancreatic Cancer Cells by Regulating ROR1 Expression

SETD8 mediated receptor tyrosine kinase-like orphan receptor 1(ROR1) activity and regulated pancreatic cancer cells invasion and migration, although promoting the expression of stemness and epithelial–mesenchymal transition-related molecules.

Henrietta Lacks Estate Sues Thermo Fisher Over HeLa Cell Line

Attorneys representing the family of Henrietta Lacks, a Black woman whose cells were cloned, mass produced, and widely used for research after being removed from a tumor on her cervix without her knowledge in 1951, have filed a lawsuit against one of the companies that commercialized the cell line
