    Precise Capture and Dynamic Release of Circulating Liver Cancer Cells with Dual-Histidine-Based Cell Imprinted Hydrogels

    Scientists designed an ultra-strong ligand, L-histidine–L-histidine, specifically targeting sialylated glycans on the surface of circulating tumor cells.

    The pRb/RBL2-E2F1/4-GCN5 Axis Regulates Cancer Stem Cell Formation and G0 Phase Entry/Exit by Paracrine Mechanisms

    Investigators used a quantitative proteomic approach for identifying secreted proteins of CSCs in pancreatic cancer. They uncovered that the cell-autonomous E2F1/4-pRb/RBL2 axis balanced non-cell-autonomous signaling in healthy ductal cells but became deregulated upon KRAS mutation.

    Macrophage-Fibroblast JAK/STAT Dependent Crosstalk Promotes Liver Metastatic Outgrowth in Pancreatic Cancer

    Scientists identified three functionally distinct metastasis-associated fibroblast populations, among which the generation of pro-metastatic and immunoregulatory myofibroblastic-MAFs critically depended on macrophages.

    Integrated Drug Profiling and CRISPR Screening Identify BCR::ABL1-Independent Vulnerabilities in Chronic Myeloid Leukemia

    The authors performed ex vivo drug screening of CML CD34+ leukemic stem/progenitor cells using 100 single drugs and tyrosine kinase inhibitor-drug combinations and identify sensitivities to Wee1, MDM2, and BCL2 inhibitors.

    Genetic and Phenotypic Profiling of Single Living Circulating Tumor Cells from Patients with Microfluidics

    Researchers described the nanoplatform for interrogating living cell host-gene and (micro-)environment relationships, that integrates micro- and nanofluidics to enable highly efficient capture of circulating tumor cells from blood samples.

    Oncolytic Herpes Simplex Virus Expressing IL-2 Controls Glioblastoma Growth and Improves Survival

    The authors developed G47Δ-mIL2 using the flip-flop herpes simplex virus BAC system to deliver IL-2 locally within the tumor microenvironment.

    The CD33xCD123xCD70 Multispecific CD3-Engaging DARPin MP0533 Induces Selective T Cell–Mediated Killing of AML Leukemic Stem Cells

    Researchers designed MP0533, a multispecific CD3-engaging designed ankyrin repeat protein that could simultaneously bind to three antigens on AML cells, CD33, CD123, and CD70, aiming to enable avidity-driven T cell–mediated killing of AML cells co-expressing at least two of the antigens.

    Identification of a Set of Genes Potentially Responsible for Resistance to Ferroptosis in Lung Adenocarcinoma Cancer Stem Cells

    The authors observed that the ferroptosis inducer RSL3 triggered lipid peroxidation and cell death in lung adenocarcinoma cells when grown in 2D conditions; however, when grown in 3D conditions, all cell lines underwent a phenotypic switch.

    Bortezomib Suppresses Acute Myelogenous Leukemia Stem-Like KG-1a Cells via NF-κB Inhibition and the Induction of Oxidative Stress

    Scientists investigated the anti-acute myelogenous leukemia (AML) activity of bortezomib, emphasizing its anti-leukemic stem cells potential, using KG-1a cells, an AML cell line with stem-like properties.
