    Breast Cancer Stem Cell–Derived Tumors Escape from γδ T-Cell Immunosurveillance In Vivo by Modulating γδ T-Cell Ligands

    Investigators showed that patient-derived triple-negative breast CSCs were efficiently recognized and killed by ex vivo expanded γδ T-cells from healthy donors. Orthotopically xenografted BCSCs, however, were refractory to γδ T-cell immunotherapy.

    m6A-Mediated Upregulation of lncRNA-AC026356.1 Promotes Cancer Stem Cell Maintenance in Lung Adenocarcinoma via Activating Wnt Signaling Pathway

    Scientists found that lncRNA-AC026356.1 was upregulated in stem spheres and chemo-resistant lung cancer cells. Fish assay also showed that AC026356.1 was predominantly located in the cytoplasm of lung cancer cells and did not have protein-coding potential.
