    Methionine Secreted by Tumor-Associated Pericytes Supports Cancer Stem Cells in Clear Cell Renal Carcinoma

    Scientists identified a subset of vascular pericytes that promoted tumorigenesis and tyrosine kinase inhibitors resistance by functioning as the primary methionine source for CSCs in clear cell renal cell carcinoma.

    The Dopamine Transporter Antagonist Vanoxerine Inhibits G9a and Suppresses Cancer Stem Cell Functions in Colon Tumors

    Using a stem cell-based phenotypic drug-screening pipeline, the authors identified the dopamine transporter antagonist vanoxerine, a compound with previously demonstrated clinical safety, as a cancer-specific downregulator of G9a expression.

    Aggresome Formation Promotes ASK1/JNK Signaling Activation and Stemness Maintenance in Ovarian Cancer

    The multiomics screening revealed that OTUD1 protein played an important role in retaining ovarian CSC properties. Mechanistically, the elevated OTUD1 protein levels led to the formation of OTUD1-based cytoplasmic aggresomes

    SALL4 Promotes Cancer Stem-Like Cell Phenotype and Radioresistance in Oral Squamous Cell Carcinomas via Methyltransferase-Like 3-Mediated m6A Modification

    The authors demonstrated that methyltransferase-like 3 was highly expressed in CD44(+) cells and promoted CSCs phenotype. Using RNA-sequencing analysis, they showed that Spalt-like transcription factor 4 (SALL4) was involved in the maintenance of CSCs properties.

    FBP1 Inhibits NSCLC Stemness by Promoting Ubiquitination of Notch1 Intracellular Domain and Accelerating Degradation

    Scientists showed that overexpression of fructose-1,6-bisphosphatase 1 (FBP1), a gluconeogenic enzyme, functions as a tumor suppressor to regulate the stemness of NSC led to a decrease in the proportion of CD133-positive cells, weakened tumorigenicity, and decreased expression of stemness factors.

    IL-24 Improves Efficacy of CAR-T Cell Therapy by Targeting Stemness of Tumor Cells

    The effect of CSCs on CAR-T cell therapy was determined using in vitro and in vivo assays. Subsequently, Interleukin-24 (IL-24) was expressed along with CAR in T cells.

    Discovery of Novel N-(Anthracen-9-ylmethyl) Benzamide Derivatives as ZNF207 Inhibitors Promising in Treating Glioma

    A series of novel N-(anthracen-9-ylmethyl) benzamide derivatives against ZNF207 were rationally designed and synthesized. The inhibitory activity was evaluated, and their structure–activity relationships were summarized.
