    Alternative RNA Splicing Modulates Ribosomal Composition and Determines the Spatial Phenotype of Glioblastoma Cells

    Scientists found that the compositions of ribosomes of glioblastoma cells in the tumour core and edge differed due to alternative RNA splicing. The acidic pH in the core switched before messenger RNA splicing of the ribosomal gene RPL22L1 towards the RPL22L1b isoform.

    TGFB2-AS1 Inhibits Triple-Negative Breast Cancer Progression via Interaction With SMARCA4 and Regulating Its Targets TGFB2 and SOX2

    Investigators revealed that TGFB2-AS1 impaired the breast cancer stem-like cell traits of TNBC cells in vitro and dramatically decreases tumorigenic frequency and lung metastasis in vivo.

    Atypical Induction of HIF-1α Expression by Pericellular Notch1 Signaling Suffices for the Malignancy of Glioblastoma Multiforme Cells

    The expression of HIF-1α was significantly elevated in highly dense glioblastoma cells, even under non-hypoxic conditions. Atypical HIF-1α expression was associated with the Notch1 signaling pathway in both glioblastoma and glioblastoma stem cells.

    Loss of SNAI1 Induces Cellular Plasticity in Invasive Triple-Negative Breast Cancer Cells

    SNAI1 knockout cells exhibited plasticity in differentiation, drifting towards the luminal phenotype, gained stemness potential, and could differentiate into acinar mammospheres in 3D culture.

    Mechanism of RIP2 Enhancing Stemness of Glioma Cells Induces Temozolomide Resistance.

    Cancer stemness of glioma cells was investigated by sphere formation assays, clone formation assays, and xenograft tumor formation assays. The expression of RIP2, p-NF-κB, IκBα, CD133, or SOX-2 was detected by Western blotting and immunofluorescence.

    Folic Acid Depletion As Well as Oversupplementation Helps in the Progression of Hepatocarcinogenesis in HepG2 Cells

    HepG2 cells were administered with three different concentrations of folic acid for 10 days. Fluorescence-activated cell sorting was done to evaluate cell viability and apoptosis. Agarose-coated plates were used to access cancer stem cells number.

    Establishment and Characterization of Chemotherapy-Enriched Sphere-Forming Cells With Stemness Phenotypes as a New Cell Line (BAG50) of Gastric Carcinoma

    Investigators reported establishing a novel cell line, BAG50, with stemness properties. Chemotherapy-enriched sphere-forming cells with CSC properties isolated from a patient with gastric cancer were cultured in a serum-containing medium and passaged for up to 51 passages.

    Cancer Fitness Genes: Emerging Therapeutic Targets for Metastasis

    Since normal cells do not experience high levels of stress under physiological conditions, targeting cancer fitness genes is less likely to cause toxicity to noncancerous tissues. Therefore, investigators summarize the key features and function of cancer fitness genes and discuss their therapeutic potential.
