    A Novel HIF-2α Targeted Inhibitor Suppresses Hypoxia-Induced Breast Cancer Stemness via SOD2-mtROS-PDI/GPR78-UPRER Axis

    Scientists illustrated that HIF-2α, but not HIF-1α, induced stemness in breast cancer cells under hypoxia through SOD2-mtROS-PDI/GRP78-UPRER pathway, linking mitochondrial metabolic state to endoplasmic reticulum (ER) response via mitochondrial reactive oxygen species (mtROS) level.

    A Self-Assembled Leucine Polymer Sensitizes Leukemic Stem Cells to Chemotherapy by Inhibiting Autophagy in Acute Myeloid Leukemia

    Investigators found that acute myeloid leukemia (AML) cells obtained from relapsed patients had increased autophagy levels than de novo AML cells.


    UPF1 Contributes to the Maintenance of Endometrial Cancer Stem Cell Phenotype by Stabilizing LINC00963

    Scientists showed that the expression of up-frameshift mutant 1 (UPF1) was upregulated in endometrial cancer tissues and endometrial CSCs and correlated with poor clinicopathological characteristics.
