    Netrin-1 Blockade Inhibits Tumor Associated Myeloid-Derived Suppressor Cells and Cancer Stemness and Alleviates Resistance to Chemotherapy and Immune Checkpoint Inhibitor

    Scientists showed that netrin-1 was an independent prognostic marker for the clinical progression of breast and ovary cancers. They found a significant correlation between netrin-1 expression and CSC marker levels.

    Targeting LGSN Restores Sensitivity to Chemotherapy in Gastric Cancer Stem Cells by Triggering Pyroptosis

    Researchers presented evidence that lengsin, lens protein with glutamine synthetase domain (LGSN), was overexpressed in gastric CSCs and was highly correlated with malignant progression and poor survival in gastric cancer patients.

    WNT2–SOX4 Positive Feedback Loop Promotes Chemoresistance and Tumorigenesis by Inducing Stem-Cell Like Properties in Gastric Cancer

    The authors found that overexpression of WNT2 enhanced stemness properties to promote chemoresistance and tumorigenicity in gastric CSCs.


    The Role of m6A-Modified CircEPHB4 in Glioma Pathogenesis: Insights Into Cancer Stemness Metastasis

    The mRNA and protein expression were tested by qRT-PCR and Western blot, respectively. ChIP assay was performed to detect SRY-box transcription factor 2 enrichment on the Pleckstrin Homology Like Domain Family B Member 2 promoter.

    Identification of a Gene Set That Maintains Tumorigenicity of the Hepatocellular Carcinoma Cell Line Li-7

    Investigators identified the mechanisms of tumorigenicity in CD13+CD166 cells. They compared gene expression profiles of CD13+CD166 cells with other cell sub-populations and identified nine overexpressed genes.
