    A Cellular Hierarchy in Melanoma Uncouples Growth and Metastasis

    By combining mouse genetics, single-cell and spatial transcriptomics, lineage tracing, and quantitative modelling, researchers provided evidence of a hierarchical model of tumor growth that mirrored the cellular and molecular logic underlying the cell-fate specification and differentiation of the embryonic neural crest.

    Oncofetal Protein IGF2BP1 Regulates IQGAP3 Expression To Maintain Stem Cell Potential in Cancer

    Scientists found that IGF2BP1 and IQGAP3 expression levels were highest in the blastocyst, with both decreasing during adulthood. This suggested that IQGAP3, like IGF2BP1, is an early developmental gene that is aberrantly upregulated upon re-expression of IGF2BP1 during carcinogenesis.

    β-Escin Overcomes Trastuzumab Resistance in HER2-Positive Breast Cancer by Targeting Cancer Stem-Like Features

    The effect of β-escin on trastuzumab-resistant and -sensitive cell lines in vitro was evaluated for apoptosis, expression of HER2 family members, and impact on CSC-like properties.

    FBXW7 Reduces the Cancer Stem Cell-Like Properties of Hepatocellular Carcinoma by Regulating the Ubiquitination and Degradation of ACTL6A

    Researchers found that FBXW7 participated in the self-renewal, tumorigenicity, sorafenib therapy, and stem cell-like properties of hepatocellular carcinoma cells in vivo and in vitro.

    Direct Cell–Cell Interaction Regulates Division of Stem Cells From PC-3 Human Prostate Cancer Cell Line

    Investigators found that the proliferation of PC-3-derived CSCs was significantly decreased in the presence of non-CSC-rich parental PC-3 cells compared with that in a culture in which they were absent.
