    TIM-3 Blockade in Diffuse Intrinsic Pontine Glioma Models Promotes Tumor Regression and Antitumor Immune Memory

    Investigators demonstrated that the immune checkpoint T cell immunoglobulin mucin-3 (TIM-3) was highly expressed in both tumor cells and microenvironmental cells, mainly microglia and macrophages, in diffuse intrinsic pontine glioma.

    A Redox-Responsive Nanosystem to Suppress Chemoresistant Lung Cancer through Targeting STAT3

    Researchers confirmed that BBI608 could efficiently suppress the proliferation and migration of non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC) cells, and specifically kill the stemness-high population in chemoresistant NSCLC cells.

    DNA Damage Response Inhibitors Enhance Tumor Treating Fields (TTFields) Potency in Glioma Stem-Like Cells

    The authors used patient-derived, typically resistant, glioma stem-like cells in combination with the previously validated preclinical Inovitro™ TTFields system together with a number of therapeutic DNA damage response inhibitors.

    Mechanisms of Breast Cancer Stem Cell Specification and Self-Renewal Mediated by Hypoxia-Inducible Factor 1

    PLXNB3 bound to and activated the MET receptor tyrosine kinase, leading to activation of the SRC non-receptor tyrosine kinase and subsequently focal adhesion kinase, which promotes cancer cell migration and invasion.

    Muc1-C Integrates Aerobic Glycolysis with Suppression of Oxidative Phosphorylation in Triple-Negative Breast Cancer Stem Cells

    Researchers performed on enriched populations of triple-negative breast cancer CSCs demonstrate that MUC1-C was essential for integrating activation of glycolytic pathway genes with self-renewal and tumorigenicity.

    Phenotypic and Molecular Characterization of Novel Pulmonary Adenocarcinoma Cell Lines Established from a Dog

    Scientists successfully established various novel canine canine pulmonary adenocarcinoma cell lines from a single lesion in a dog, including two parent cell lines and fourteen cloned cell lines, and characterized their cellular properties in vitro.

    LRPPRC Regulates Malignant Behaviors, Protects Mitochondrial Homeostasis, Mitochondrial Function in Osteosarcoma and Derived Cancer Stem-Like Cells

    Leucine-rich pentatricopeptide repeat containing (LRPPRC) level in osteosarcoma cells and CSCs were detected by western blot. Effects of LRPPRC on CSCs were accessed after LRPPRC knockdown by introducing lentivirus containing shRNA targeting to LRPPRC mRNA.

    Microdevices for Cancer Stem Cell Culture as a Predictive Chemotherapeutic Response Platform

    The authors evaluated individual sphere proliferation and stemness toward chemotherapeutic treatment with doxorubicin and cisplatin in bladder cancer cell lines cultured in microfluidic devices used as CSC treatment response platform.

    Inhibiting BRAF/EGFR/MEK Suppresses Cancer Stemness and Drug Resistance of Primary Colorectal Cancer Cells

    Researchers developed spheroid cultures of patient-derived BRAFmut and KRASmut tumor cells and studied resistance mechanisms to inhibition of MAPK pathway through phenotypic and gene and protein expression analysis.

    Stem-Cell Aging and Pathways to Precancer Evolution

    Stem cells can renew themselves without differentiating. Aging, inflammation, and environmental exposures may drive phenotypic changes in tissue stem cells that cause them to become CSCs.

    Exploring the Dynamic Interplay Between Cancer Stem Cells and the Tumor Microenvironment: Implications for Novel Therapeutic Strategies

    Scientists highlight the intricate strategies employed by CSCs to evade immune surveillance and develop resistance to therapies. They examine the dynamic interplay between CSCs and the tumor microenvironment, shedding light on how this interaction impacts cancer progression.
