    Single-Cell Transcriptomic Analysis Deciphers Heterogenous Cancer Stem-Like Cells in Colorectal Cancer and Their Organ-Specific Metastasis

    Investigators performed single-cell RNA sequencing and spatial transcriptomic analysis in primary colorectal cancer and metastases in the liver or ovary. They also conducted immunofluorescence staining and functional experiments to examine the mechanism.

    CD38-Directed, Single-Chain T Cell-Engager Targets Leukemia Stem Cells through IFNγ-Induced CD38 Expression

    Researchers investigated the correlation of immunity and cancer stemness with the molecular subtyping and survival rates in triple negative breast cancer using bioinformatics approaches.


    Targeting PRMT9-Mediated Arginine Methylation Suppresses Cancer Stem Cell Maintenance and Elicits cGAS-Mediated Anticancer Immunity

    The authors showed that targeting protein arginine N-methyltransferase 9 (PRMT9), whose activities were elevated in blasts and leukemia stem cells from patients with acute myeloid leukemia, eliminated disease via cancer-intrinsic mechanisms and cancer-extrinsic type I interferon-associated immunity.

    CREB5 Promotes the Proliferation and Self-Renewal Ability of Glioma Stem Cells

    Both public dataset analysis and direct differentiation experiments on glioma stem cells demonstrated that cAMP response element-binding protein (CREB5) was more highly expressed in undifferentiated GSCs than in differentiated GSCs.

    USP14 Promotes the Cancer Stem-Like Cell Properties of OSCC via Promoting SOX2 Deubiquitination

    The authors identified new substrates of ubiquitin-specific-processing protease 14 (USP14) and elucidated their role in modulating cancer stem-like cells in oral squamous cell carcinoma. Bioinformatics prediction and docking were performed using UbiBrowser 2.0 and HDOCK, respectively.

    Cell Cycle Heterogeneity and Plasticity of Colorectal Cancer Stem Cells

    New evidence suggests that colorectal CSCs manifest substantial heterogeneity, as exemplified by the existence of both actively cycling Lgr5+ CSCs as well as quiescent Lgr5+ CSCs that are resistant to conventional anticancer therapies.
