    The Repression of Oncoprotein SET by the Tumor Suppressor p53 Reveals a p53-SET-PP2A Feedback Loop for Cancer Therapy

    Investigators identified the tumor suppressor p53 as a key regulator that transcriptionally repressed the expression of SET in both normal and cancer cells.

    Targeting the mRNA Endonuclease CPSF73 Inhibits Breast Cancer Cell Migration, Invasion and Self-Renewal

    The authors reported that a HECT-like E3 ligase, UBE3D, participated in stabilizing CPFS73 protein by preventing its ubiquitin-mediated degradation by the proteasome.

    PI3Kδ Activity Controls Plasticity and Discriminates between EMT and Stemness Based on Distinct TGFβ Signaling

    Based on 3D organoid culture of hepatocellular carcinoma-derived cell lines and AAV8-based protein overexpression in the mouse liver, investigators showed that activity modulation of isoform δ of phosphoinositide 3-kinase (PI3Kδ) controls differentiation and discriminates between stemness.

    Efficacy of Cancer-Specific Anti-Podoplanin CAR-T Cells and Oncolytic Herpes Virus G47Δ Combination Therapy against Glioblastoma

    LpMab-2 (Lp2)-chimeric antigen receptor (CAR) transduced T cells (Lp2-CAR-T) specifically targeted podoplanin (PDPN)-expressing glioma cells, while sparing the PDPN-expressing normal cells. Lp2-CAR-T also killed patient-derived glioma stem cells, demonstrating its clinical potential against glioblastoma.
