    Expression of GALNT8 and O-glycosylation of BMP Receptor 1A Suppress Breast Cancer Cell Proliferation by Upregulating ERα Levels

    Immunofluorescence, immunoprecipitation, lectin blot and quantitative real-time PCR were used to investigate the expression of N-acetyl-α-galactosaminyltransferases (GALNT8) and its role in regulating estrogen receptor α via bone morphogenetic protein signaling.

    Macrophage-Mediated RON Signaling Supports Breast Cancer Growth and Progression through Modulation of IL-35

    Researchers showed that the activation of the RON receptor tyrosine kinase signaling pathway specifically in macrophages supports breast cancer growth and metastasis.


    Dual Cancer Stem Cell Manipulation to Enhance Phototherapy against Tumor Progression and Metastasis

    Investigators engineered a photodynamic nanoplatform to manipulate breast cancer stem cells against tumor progression and metastasis by not only remolding the disequilibrium state but also blocking the epithelial-mesenchymal transition process.

    Reg4 Interacts with CD44 to Regulate Proliferation and Stemness of Colorectal and Pancreatic Cancer Cells

    Researchers identified the cell surface binding partner of Reg4 and dissecting its role in colorectal cancer (CRC) and pancreatic cancer (PC) growth and stem cell survival. In vitro models of human CRC and PC were used to evaluate the results.

    Novel Cancer Stem Cell Marker MVP Enhances Temozolomide-Resistance in Glioblastoma

    Researchers found that sensitivity toTemozolomide (TMZ) was suppressed by significantly increasing the major vault protein (MVP) expression in glioblastoma multiforme cells with TMZ resistance.

    Tumor Stemness and Immune Infiltration Synergistically Predict Response of Radiotherapy or Immunotherapy and Relapse in Lung Adenocarcinoma

    After integrating the tumor stemness index based on mRNA expression, immune score, mRNA expression, and clinical information from the TCGA database, scientists screened 380 tumor stemness and immune (TSI)-related genes and constructed a five TSI-specific-gene signature.

    Circulating Cancer Stem Cells Expressing EpCAM/CD90 in Hepatocellular Carcinoma: A Pilot Study for Predicting Tumor Recurrence after Living Donor Liver Transplantation

    Epithelial cell adhesion molecule+ (EpCAM+), cluster of differentiation 90+ (CD90+) and EpCAM+/CD90+ circulating tumor cells were sorted via fluorescence-activated cell sorting, and transcripts level of EpCAM, K19 and CD90 in the peripheral blood were analyzed via real-time polymerase chain reaction preoperatively.
