    Long-Term DEHP/MEHP Exposure Promotes Colorectal Cancer Stemness Associated with Glycosylation Alterations

    The authors investigated the alteration of glycosylation in colorectal cancer following long-term plasticizers exposure. They determined the profiles of cell surface N-glycomes by using mass spectrometry and found out the alterations of α2,8-linkages glycans.

    Role of Stemness-Related Genes TIMP1, PGF, and SNAI1 in the Prognosis of Colorectal Cancer through Single-Cell RNA-Seq

    DESeq2 was applied to analyze the differentially expressed genes. The mRNA stemness index was calculated by one-class logistic regression. The stemness-related cells were analyzed based on scRNA-seq dataset GSE166555.
