    SCARB2 Drives Hepatocellular Carcinoma Tumor Initiating Cells via Enhanced MYC Transcriptional Activity

    Scientists performed a metabolic gene CRISPR/Cas9 knockout library screen in tumorspheres derived from hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) cells and found that deletion of scavenger receptor class B member 2 (SCARB2) suppressed the cancer stem cell-like properties of HCC cells.
