    VC-Resist Glioblastoma Cell State: Vessel Co-Option as a Key Driver of Chemoradiation Resistance

    Using a combination of transcriptomic, proteomic, and phosphoproteomic analyses, longitudinal imaging, and other assays, investigators demonstrated that chemoradiation and brain vasculature induce cell transition to a functional state named vessel co-opting and resistant cell state.

    Targeting NKG2D Ligands in Glioblastoma with a Bispecific T-Cell Engager Is Augmented with Conventional Therapy and Enhances Oncolytic Virotherapy of Glioma Stem-Like Cells

    Researchers designed a bispecific T cell engager capable of cross-linking CD3 on T cells with NKG2DL-expressing GBM cells. They then engineered the G207 virus to express the NKG2D BiTE and secrete it from infected cells.

    GPC3-Targeted CAR-T Cells Expressing GLUT1 or AGK Exhibit Enhanced Antitumor Activity against Hepatocellular Carcinoma

    The authors generated GPC3-targeted CAR-T cells overexpressing GLUT1 or AGK for the treatment of HCC. GPC3-targeted CAR-T cells overexpressing GLUT1 or AGK specifically and effectively lysed GPC3-positive tumor cells in vitro in an antigen-dependent manner.

    Circ-0075305 Hinders Gastric Cancer Stem Cells by Indirectly Disrupting TCF4–β-Catenin Complex and Downregulation of SOX9

    In vitro and in vivo experiments confirmed that overexpression of Circ-0075305 could effectively reduce stem cell-like properties and enhanced the sensitivity of gastric cancer cells to Oxaliplatin compared with the control group.

    CD271 mRNA/hnRNPA2B1 Complex Promotes Proliferation and Stemness in Oral and Head and Neck Squamous Cell Carcinoma

    The authors showed that CD271 mRNA, but not CD271 protein, facilitated spheroid cell proliferation. They established CD271−/− cells lacking both mRNA and protein of CD271, as well as CD271 protein knockout cells lacking only CD271 protein, from hypopharyngeal and oral squamous cell carcinoma lines.

    TRIM58 Downregulation Maintains Stemness via MYH9-GRK3-YAP Axis Activation in Triple-Negative Breast Cancer Stem Cells

    Researchers reported that TRIM58 was underexpressed in TNBC tissues and cells compared to adjacent mucosa tissue, and its downregulation was significantly associated with shorter survival.

    Stem Cells Derived Exosomes as Biological Nano Carriers for VCR Sulfate for Treating Breast Cancer Stem Cells

    Investigators isolated exosomes (Exos) from MSCs, and using probe-sonication approach loaded them with vincristine (VCR) sulfate. Using SRB assay, the cytotoxicity of VCR sulfate-Exo was assessed in T47D breast cancer cells, and the results were contrasted with those of free VCR sulfate.
