    Terminally Exhausted CD8+ T Cells Resistant to PD-1 Blockade Promote Generation and Maintenance of Aggressive Cancer Stem Cells

    Researchers reported that terminally exhausted (TTEX) cells actively participated in tumor progression by modulating CSCs. TTEX cells strongly correlated with elevated CSC frequency in poorly immune-infiltrated advanced human breast and ovarian carcinomas.

    Discovery of YH677 as a Cancer Stemness Inhibitor That Suppresses Triple-Negative Breast Cancer Growth and Metastasis by Regulating the TGFβ Signaling Pathway

    Harmine was identified as a hit compound based on phenotypic screening of a 2D assay and patient-derived organoid model that was established from a patient with multiple drug resistance and breast metastases.

    Matrix Gla Protein Drives Stemness and Tumor Initiation in Ovarian Cancer

    Researchers investigated the molecular and funcitonal makeup of ovarian CSCs (OCSCs) in clinically relevant model systems, and revealed that Matrix Gla Protein was markedly enriched in OCSCs.

    G9a Promotes Immune Suppression by Targeting the Fbxw7/Notch Pathway in Glioma Stem Cells

    The authors investigated the effects of histone methyltransferases 2, EHMT2 or G9a, on immunosuppressive tumor microenvironment and whether this effect was related to changes on cell stemness.

    TIPE2 Sensitizes Breast Cancer Cells to Paclitaxel by Suppressing Drug-Induced Autophagy and Cancer Stem Cell Properties

    The in vitro and in vivo study demonstrated that tumor necrosis factor-α-induced protein-8-like-2 (TIPE2) sensitized breast cancer cells to paclitaxel by suppressing drug-induced autophagy and CSC properties.

    Eradicating the Tumor “Seeds”: Nanomedicines-Based Therapies against Cancer Stem Cells

    The authors summarize the biological hallmarks and markers of CSCs, and the nanotechnology-based therapies to eradicate them.
