    Loss of RanGAP1 Drives Chromosome Instability and Rapid Tumorigenesis of Osteosarcoma

    Scientists showed that reduction and inactivation of Ran GTPase-activating protein 1 (RanGAP1) commonly occured in human osteosarcoma, which was associated with a high rate of chromothripsis.

    METTL3 Knockdown Promotes Temozolomide Sensitivity of Glioma Stem Cells via Decreasing MGMT and APNG mRNA Stability

    Scientists found that the cell viability and half-maximal inhibitory concentration of glioma stem cells (GSCs) against temozolomide significantly decreased after GSCs underwent serum-induced differentiation to adherent growth of tumor cells.
