    Lymphatic Endothelial-Like Cells Promote Glioblastoma Stem Cell Growth through Cytokine-Driven Cholesterol Metabolism

    Investigators showed that lymphatic endothelial-like cells, while previously unrecognized in brain parenchyma, were present in glioblastomas and promoted growth of CCR7-positive glioblastoma stem cells through CCL21 secretion.

    TMIGD2 Is an Orchestrator and Therapeutic Target on Human Acute Myeloid Leukemia Stem Cells

    Researchers showed that transmembrane and immunoglobulin domain containing 2 (TMIGD2), a recently discovered co-stimulatory immune receptor, was aberrantly expressed by human AML cells, and could be used to identify and enrich functional leukemia stem cells.

    Stabilization of Pin1 by USP34 Promotes Ubc9 Isomerization and Protein Sumoylation in Glioma Stem Cells

    Scientists demonstrated that peptidyl-prolyl cis-trans isomerase NIMA-interacting 1 (Pin1) was deubiquitinated and stabilized by USP34, which promoted isomerization of the sole SUMO E2 enzyme Ubc9, leading to SUMO1-modified hypersumoylation to support glioma stem cell maintenance.

    Cancer Associated Fibroblasts Serve as an Ovarian Cancer Stem Cell Niche through Noncanonical Wnt5a Signaling

    Using heterotypic cancer associated fibroblast (CAF)-ovarian cancer (OC) cocultures and in vivo limiting dilution assay, the authors confirmed that the CAFs acted by enriching the CSC population.

    The Paracaspase MALT1 Controls Cholesterol Homeostasis in Glioblastoma Stem-Like Cells through Lysosome Proteome Shaping

    By combining RNA sequencing with proteome-wide label-free quantification, investigators reported that MALT1 repression in patient-derived glioblastoma stem-like cells altered the homeostasis of cholesterol, which accumulated in late endosomes-lysosomes.

    NELF and PAF1C Complexes Are Core Transcriptional Machineries Controlling Colon Cancer Stemness

    Scientists found that inducible inhibition of β-catenin suppressed elongation of Pol II and RNA polymerase-associated factor 1 complex (PAF1C) around the transcription start site (TSS) of LGR5.

    TC2N Inhibits Distant Metastasis and Stemness of Breast Cancer via Blocking Fatty Acid Synthesis

    Tumor tissues of 212 breast cancer patients were subjected to tissue microarray and further assessed the associations of tandem C2 domains, nuclear (TC2N) expression with pathological parameters and FASN expression.
