    Effects of Iron Modulation on Mesenchymal Stem Cell-Induced Drug Resistance in Estrogen Receptor-Positive Breast Cancer

    The authors utilized a co-culture model of bone marrow mesenchymal stem cells and estrogen receptor+ breast cancer cells to recapitulate interactions of cancer cells in bone marrow niches.


    HERVs Characterize Normal and Leukemia Stem Cells and Represent a Source of Shared Epitopes for Cancer Immunotherapy

    Researchers used a reference of 14,968 human endogenous retroviruses (HERV) functional units to provide a thorough analysis of HERV expression in normal and acute myeloid leukemia bone marrow cells.

    Toll-Like Receptor 2 Promotes Breast Cancer Progression and Resistance to Chemotherapy

    Scientists showed that high TLR2 expression is linked to poor prognosis in breast cancer patients, therefore representing a candidate target for breast cancer treatment.

    Garcinone C Suppresses Tumorsphere Formation and Invasiveness by Hedgehog/Gli1 Signaling in Colorectal Cancer Stem-Like Cells

    Researchers investigated the effect of garcinone C on cancer stemness and invasiveness in colorectal cancer; Gli1 was noted as pivotal in maintaining stemness and invasiveness in HCT116 and HT29 CSCs.

    Cancer Stem Cell-Like Cells-Derived Exosomal CDKN2B-AS1 Stabilizes CDKN2B to Promote the Growth and Metastasis of Thyroid Cancer via TGF-β1/Smad2/3 Signaling

    Scientists investigated the role of cancer stem cell-like cells-derived exosomal CDKN2B-AS1 in thyroid cancer and the underlying regulatory mechanism.

    CDC20 Regulates Sensitivity to Chemotherapy and Radiation in Glioblastoma Stem Cells

    CDC20 knockdown did not increase TMZ- and radiation-induced DNA damage, or alter DNA damage repair, but rather promoted cell death through accumulation of the pro-apoptotic protein, Bim.

    Targeting CXCR4 to Suppress Glioma-Initiating Cells and Chemoresistance in Glioma

    The authors indicated that C-X-C motif chemokine receptor 4 (CXCR4) mediated the upregulation of Kruppel like factor 5, a zinc-finger-containing transcription factor, to facilitate the proliferation of glioma initiating cells.

    Chelerythrine Chloride Inhibits Stemness of Melanoma Cancer Stem-Like Cells (CSCs) Potentially via Inducing Reactive Oxygen Species and Causing Mitochondria Dysfunction

    Researchers identified the antitumourigenic activities of the medicinal compound chelerythrine chloride (CHE) on melanoma CSCs. CHE induced apoptosis in A375 and A2058 CSCs.

    Stem Cell Theory of Cancer: Origin of Metastasis and Sub-Clonality

    Investigators discuss whether stem-ness enables metastasis or mutations drive metastasis. They ponder about low-grade versus high-grade tumors and about primary versus metastatic tumors.
