    Interferon-Dependent SLC14A1+ Cancer-Associated Fibroblasts Promote Cancer Stemness via WNT5A in Bladder Cancer

    A population of cancer-associated fibroblasts was induced by interferon signaling and conferred stemness to bladder cancer cells via the WNT5A paracrine pathway.

    The Insulin and IGF Signaling Pathway Sustains Breast Cancer Stem Cells by IRS2/PI3K-Mediated Regulation of MYC

    Researchers reported that insulin/insulin-like growth factor (IGF) signaling supported breast CSC self-renewal in an IRS2-phosphatidylinositol 3-kinase (PI3K)-dependent manner that involved the activation and stabilization of MYC.

    NRP1 Inhibition Modulates Radiosensitivity of Medulloblastoma by Targeting Cancer Stem Cells

    Neuropilin-1 receptor (NRP1) inhibition with a novel peptidomimetic agent, MR438, was evaluated with radiotherapy in medulloblastoma models in vitro on cancer stem-like cells as well as in vivo on heterotopic and orthotopic xenografts.

    RhoC in Association With TET2/WDR5 Regulates Cancer Stem Cells by Epigenetically Modifying the Expression of Pluripotency Genes

    Cell lines and clinical specimen-based findings demonstrated that RhoC regulated tumor phenotypes such as clonogenicity and anoikis resistance.

    CD14, a Novel Surface Marker of Esophageal Cancer Stem Cells

    Investigators utilized paraffin‑embedded sections of human esophageal carcinoma and indicated that the ALDH1‑labeled esophageal CSCs expressed CD14 and primary CD14+ cells possessed the characteristics of CSCs.

    Long Non-Coding RNA TDRG1 Aggravates Lung Cancer Stemness by Binding to Sox2 mRNA

    Scientists collected 3D non-adherent spheres as the CSC model to measure lncRNA TDRG1 level in lung CSC and the parental lung cancer cells, and found that TDRG1 level was significantly upregulated in lung CSCs compared to that of parental lung cancer cells

    Gastric Cancer Stem Cell-Derived Exosomes Promoted Tobacco Smoke-Triggered Development of Gastric Cancer by Inducing the Expression of circ670

    Researchers provided a new insight into tobacco smoke promoting the progression of gastric cancer, demonstrating that tobacco smoke-induced exosomes promoted the spheroidizing ability, stemness genes expression, and epithelial-mesenchymal transition process of gastric cancer stem cells.

    High Percentage of Cancer Stem Cells in Metastatic Locations: Upregulation of cicBIRC6 in Highly Metastatic Breast Cancer Subline

    In breast cancer, metastatic tumor cells have higher stem cell properties, therefore the authors evaluated the expression of cicBIRC6 in these cells.

    Cyanidin Inhibits Glioma Stem Cells Proliferation through the Wnt Signaling Pathway

    Cyanidin significantly reduced the cell viability of all glioma stem cells, and exhibited the most substantial effect in GBM2 but no apparent effect in 293T cells.

    Metabolic Determinants of Tumor Initiation

    The authors discuss how cell-intrinsic factors, such as the cell of origin or transforming oncogene, and cell-extrinsic factors, such as local nutrient availability, promote or restrain tumour initiation.

    The Vulnerable Primed Cancer Stem Cells in Disguise: Demystifying the Role of Maspin

    In light of the recently established characterization of primed stem cells in development, scientists propose that CSCs also need to undergo priming before their transition to various progeny phenotypes.
