Targeting Alpha-2,3-Sialylated Glycan in Glioma Stem-Like Cells by Maackia amurensis Lectin-II: A Promising Strategy for Glioma Treatment

Researchers established a new glioma stem-like cell, named U373-GSC, from the U373 glioma cell line. The cells exhibited stemness properties such as the expression of stem cell markers, self-renewal activity, multi-lineage differentiating abilities, and drug resistance.

MiR-342-3p Inhibits LCSC Oncogenicity and Cell Stemness through HDAC7/PTEN Axis

miR-342-3p overexpression in liver CSCs (LCSC) led to lower tumor volume, reduced tumor spheroid formation, and agar colony formation rates, as well as lower mRNA and protein expressions of CD44, ALDH1, Bmi1, Sox2, and Oct4.
