    Characterization of an RNA Binding Protein Interactome Reveals a Context-Specific Post-Transcriptional Landscape of MYC-Amplified Medulloblastoma

    The authors identified binding targets of Musashi-1 in normal neural and group 3 medulloblastoma stem cells and then cross referenced these data with unbiased large-scale screens at the transcriptomic, translatomic, and proteomic levels.

    FBXL2 Promotes E47 Protein Instability to Inhibit Breast Cancer Stemness and Paclitaxel Resistance

    Scientists demonstrated that the F-box protein FBXL2 was a critical negative regulator of breast cancer stem cell stemness and that downregulation of FBXL2 played a causal role in TNBC drug resistance.


    EZH2 Interacts with HP1BP3 to Epigenetically Activate WNT7B That Promotes Temozolomide Resistance in Glioblastoma

    Researchers clarified a new oncogenic mechanism of enhancer of Zeste Homolog 2 (EZH2) by which it interacted with heterochromatin protein 1 binding protein 3 (HP1BP3) and epigenetically activated WNT7B thereby promoting TMZ resistance in glioma stem cells.


    Glioblastoma Stem Cells Express Non-Canonical Proteins and Exclusive Mesenchymal-Like or Non-Mesenchymal-Like Protein Signatures

    To characterize protein expression in glioblastoma CSCs (GSCs), scientists performed in-depth proteogenomic analysis of patient-derived GSCs by RNA-sequencing and mass-spectrometry.

    GAS5 Attenuates the Malignant Progression of Glioma Stem-Like Cells by Promoting E-cadherin

    The authors established two highly malignant glioma stem-like cell (GSC) lines from clinical surgical specimens and found that the long non-coding RNA growth arrest-specific 5 (GAS5) expression was downregulated in GSCs and high-grade glioma tissues.

    Aporphine and Isoquinoline Derivatives Block Glioblastoma Cell Stemness and Enhance Temozolomide Cytotoxicity

    Based on the cytotoxic properties of aporphine compounds, researchers evaluated the biological effect of 12 compounds obtained through total synthesis of (±)-apomorphine hydrochloride against glioblastoma cells.

    TWIST1 Activates Cancer Stem Cell Marker Genes to Promote Epithelial-Mesenchymal Transition and Tumorigenesis in Esophageal Squamous Cell Carcinoma

    Investigators identified a role for Twist-related protein 1 (TWIST1) in the establishment of esophageal squamous cell carcinoma CSC-like phenotype, facilitating the transformation of non-CSCs to CSCs.

    Cancer Stem Cells (CSCs): Key Player of Radiotherapy Resistance and Its Clinical Significance

    The authors discuss CSCs, radioresistance-mediated CSCs development, epithelial-to-mesenchymal transition associated with CSCs, the role of exosomes in radioresistance development, and the current state of radiation therapy.
