    A Self-Propagating C-Met-SOX2 Axis Drives Cancer-Derived IgG Signaling That Promotes Lung Cancer Cell Stemness

    The sialylated cancer IgG (SIA-cIgG)/c-Met/SOX2/SIA-cIgG signaling loop was highly active in stem-like cells from many epithelial cancers and was crucial for cancer stemness in vitro and in vivo.

    Tespa1 Facilitates Hematopoietic and Leukemic Stem Cell Maintenance by Restricting c-Myc Degradation

    Researchers observed that the expression of thymocyte-expressed, positive selection-associated 1 (Tespa1) was markedly increased in hematopoietic stem cells after stress exposure.

    eIF2Bδ Blocks the Integrated Stress Response and Maintains eIF2B Activity and Cancer Metastasis by Overexpression in Breast Cancer Stem Cells

    Scientists described a unique translation regulatory axis enacted by reduced expression of miR-183 in breast CSCs, which they showed targeted the eIF2Bδ subunit of guanine nucleotide exchange factor eIF2B.

    oHSV-P10 Reduces Glioma Stem Cell Enrichment after Oncolytic HSV Therapy

    Researchers showed that post-oncolytic HSV (oHSV) virotherapy-activated AKT signaling results in an enrichment of glioblastoma stem-like cell signatures in glioma.

    Culture of Circulating Tumor Cells Using a Microfilter Device

    The authors established a novel approach to capture and cultivate circulating tumor cells (CTCs) using a microfilter device. Whole blood was filtered to isolate CTCs and cells captured on the microfilter were cultured in place.

    Be sure the cells you’re gene editing are still HSPCs with StemSpan™ SFEM II culture medium.

    Cancer Stem Cell-Derived Exosome-Induced Metastatic Cancer: An Orchestra within the Tumor Microenvironment

    Scientists summarize the characteristic features and functional mechanisms of CSC-derived exosomes/mesenchymal stem cell exosomes/cancer-associated fibroblast exosomes and their mutual impact on cancer progression and therapy resistance.

    FDA Converts to Full Approval Indication for Keytruda® (Pembrolizumab) for Certain Adult and Pediatric Patients with Advanced Microsatellite Instability-High (Msi-H) or Mismatch Repair Deficient (dMMR) Solid Tumors

    Merck announced that the US FDA has granted full approval to KEYTRUDA for the treatment of adult and pediatric patients with unresectable or metastatic MSI-H or dMMR solid tumors that have progressed following prior treatment and who have no satisfactory alternative treatment options.
