    Inhibition of Mitochondrial Folate Metabolism Drives Differentiation through mTORC1 Mediated Purine Sensing

    Scientists revealed that mitochondrial folate metabolism was upregulated in patient-derived leukemic stem cells. They demonstrated that inhibition of mitochondrial one carbon metabolism through impairment of de novo purine synthesis has a cytostatic effect on chronic myeloid leukemia cells.

    DNAJC10 Maintains Survival and Self-Renewal of Leukemia Stem Cells through PERK Branch of the Unfolded Protein Response

    Mechanistically, inhibition of DNAJC10 specifically induced endoplasmic reticulum stress and promoted activation of protein kinase RNA-like ER kinase (PERK)-eukaryotic initiation factor 2 α subunit-activating transcription factor 4 branch of unfolded protein response.

    SOX2 and OCT4 Mediate Radiation and Drug Resistance in Pancreatic Tumor Organoids

    Investigators treated pancreatic tumor organoids with 4 or 8 Gy of radiation, 10 μM of 5-Fluorouracil, and 100 μM 3-Bromopyruvate, a promising anti-cancer drug, as a single treatment modalities, and in combination with RT.

    Lactate-Driven Type I Collagen Deposition Facilitates Cancer Stem Cell-Like Phenotype of Head and Neck Squamous Cell Carcinoma

    Scientists found that lactate increased CSC characteristics of head and neck squamous cell carcinoma by influencing the deposition of type I collagen (Col I). Lactate promoted Col I deposition through two distinct pathways.

    Targeting DEP Domain Containing 1 in Anaplastic Thyroid Carcinoma: Implications for Stemness Regulation and Malignant Phenotype Suppression

    Investigators employed the single sample gene set enrichment analysis algorithm to evaluate the stemness of samples in combined datasets. Samples were then classified into high and low stemness subgroups based on their average stemness scores.

    GTP Binding Protein 2 Maintains the Quiescence, Self-Renewal, and Chemoresistance of Mouse Colorectal Cancer Stem Cells via Promoting Wnt Signaling Activation

    The authors characterized the expression and function of GTP binding protein 2 (GTPBP2) in a chemical-induced mouse colorectal cancer (CRC) model. They found that GTPBP2 was expressed at a higher level in CD133+CD44+ CCSCs compared with other CRC cells.
