    UHRF1 Inhibition Epigenetically Reprograms Cancer Stem Cells to Suppress the Tumorigenic Phenotype of Hepatocellular Carcinoma

    Hepatocyte-specific Uhrf1 knockout (Uhrf1HKO) strongly suppressed tumor initiation and CSC self-renewal in both diethylnitrosamine (DEN)/CCl4-induced and Myc-transgenic hepatocellular carcinoma mouse models.

    Targeting Lysine-Specific Demethylase 1 (KDM1A/LSD1) Impairs Colorectal Cancer Tumorigenesis by Affecting Cancer Cells Stemness, Motility, and Differentiation

    The authors explored the potential role of KDM1A targeting in colorectal cancer (CRC) by characterizing the effect of KDM1A silencing in differentiated and CRC stem cells. I.

    Cell Softness Reveals Tumorigenic Potential via ITGB8/AKT/Glycolysis Signaling in a Mice Model of Orthotopic Bladder Cancer

    The stiffness of bladder cancer cells was determined by atomic force microscopy. The modified microfluidic chip was utilized to separate soft cells, and the 3D Matrigel culture system was to maintain the softness of tumor cells.

    RPL27 Contributes to Colorectal Cancer Proliferation and Stemness via PLK1 Signaling

    Human colorectal cancer cell lines HCT116 and HT29 were transfected with RPL27‑specific small interfering RNA and proliferation was assessed in vitro and in vivo using proliferation assays, fluorescence‑activated cell sorting and a xenograft mouse model.

    Cancer Stem Cell Activity of Copper(ii)-Terpyridine Complexes with Aryl Sulfonamide Group

    Scientists reported the synthesis, characterization, and anti-breast CSC properties of a series of copper(II)-terpyridine complexes containing aryl sulfonamide groups. All of the copper(II)-terpyridine complexes adopt distorted square pyramidal geometries and are suitably stable in biologically relevant solutions.

    GNPNAT1 Promotes the Stemness of Breast Cancer and Serves as a Potential Prognostic Biomarker

    Researchers evaluated the expression levels of GNPNAT1 in breast cancer (BC) and its effect on BC stem cells. The Cancer Genome Atlas database was used for the analysis of the expression of GNPNAT1 and its clinical significance.

    Parathyroid Hormone-Related Protein Promotes the Proliferation of Patient-Derived Glioblastoma Stem Cells via Activating cAMP/PKA Signaling Pathway

    Using the Cancer Genome Atlas database, investigators found higher expression of PTHrP in GBM, which correlated inversely with survival. Glioblastoma stem cells were established from three human glioblastoma samples obtained after surgical resection.

    Effects of a Differentiating Therapy on Cancer-Stem-Cell-Driven Tumors

    To describe the effects of a differentiating agent that reprograms CSCs into differentiated cancer cells (DCC), researchers adapted a differential equation model developed to investigate tumorspheres, which were assumed to consist of jointly evolving CSC and DCC populations
