    RICH1 Inhibits Breast Cancer Stem Cell Traits through Activating Kinases Cascade of Hippo Signaling by Competing with Merlin for Binding to Amot-p80

    Scientists found that the low expression of RICH1 in breast cancer was associated with poor prognosis. Depletion of RICH1 promoted the stemness and disrupted the normal epithelial architecture of MCF10A cells.

    The Association between Bromodomain (BrD) Proteins and Cancer Stemness in Different Solid Tumor Types

    Researchers demonstrated that significant upregulation of ATAD2 and SMARCA4, and downregulation of SMARCA2 was consistently associated with enriched CSC-like phenotype, respectively.

    KRT13 Promotes Stemness and Drives Metastasis in Breast Cancer through a Plakoglobin/C-myc Signaling Pathway

    Keratin 13 (KRT13) plays an important role in breast cancer progression and metastasis. The authors elucidated the mechanism by which KRTs promoted breast cancer growth and metastasis.

    Estrogen Receptor Beta Increases Clear Cell Renal Cell Carcinoma Stem Cell Phenotype via Altering the circPHACTR4/miR-34b-5p/C-myc Signaling

    Scientists found estrogen receptor beta could increase the CSC population via altering the circPHACTR4/miR-34b-5p/c-Myc signaling.

    Tumor Radioresistance Caused by Radiation-Induced Changes of Stem-Like Cell Content and Sub-lethal Damage Repair Capability

    Four types of human oral squamous carcinoma cell lines, non-radioresistant cell lines, and radioresistant cell lines, were used to measure the surviving fraction after single-dose irradiation, split-dose irradiation, and multi-fractionated irradiation.

    Tanshinone IIA Attenuates the Stemness of Breast Cancer Cells via Targeting the miR-125b/STARD13 Axis

    In vitro mammary spheroid formation, flow cytometry assay on CD24−/CD44+ sub-population, ALDH activity detection, cell viability assay and western blot analysis, and in vivo tumor-initiating analysis were performed to examine the effects of Tanshinone IIA on the stemness of breast cancer cells.

    SETD5 Regulates Glycolysis in Breast Cancer Stem-Like Cells and Fuels Tumor Growth

    Downregulation of SET-domain containing 5 (SETD5) significantly decreased breast cancer stem-like cells properties and glycolysis in vitro and in vivo.

    Deregulation of the CD44-NANOG-MDR1 Associated Chemoresistance Pathways of Breast Cancer Stem Cells Potentiates the Anti-cancer Effect of Kaempferol in Synergism with Verapamil

    Researchers used Kaempferol in combination with Verapamil, in multiple assays to determine if there was an inhibitory effect on breast CSCs.

    FOXM1 Mediates GDF-15 Dependent Stemness and Intrinsic Drug Resistance in Breast Cancer

    The expressions and interactions of GDF-15, FOXM1, and stemness (OCT4 and SOX2), and drug resistance (ABCC5) markers were evaluated in breast cancer.

    Mechanisms of Polycomb Group Protein Function in Cancer

    Cancer arises from a multitude of disorders resulting in loss of differentiation and a stem cell-like phenotype characterized by uncontrolled growth. Polycomb Group proteins are members of multiprotein complexes that are highly conserved throughout evolution.
