    Olaparib Efficacy in Patients With Metastatic Castration-Resistant Prostate Cancer and BRCA1, BRCA2 or ATM Alterations Identified by Testing Circulating Tumor DNA

    The authors presented exploratory analyses on the use of ctDNA testing as an additional method to identify castration-resistant prostate cancer patients with homologous recombination repair gene alterations who may be eligible for olaparib treatment.

    ATF3 Reprograms the Bone Marrow Niche in Response to Early Breast Cancer Transformation

    Using a spontaneous model of mammary carcinoma, investigators identified bone marrow (BM) mesenchymal stem cells as the first sensors of distal cancer cells and key mediators of BM reprogramming.

    Meis1 Supports Leukemogenesis through Stimulation of Ribosomal Biogenesis and Myc

    While HoxA9 alone immortalizes cells, cooperation with Meis1 is necessary to induce a full leukemic phenotype. Here, the authors applied degron techniques to elucidate the leukemogenic contribution of Meis1.


    LINC00589-Dominated ceRNA Networks Regulate Multiple Chemoresistance and Cancer Stem Cell-Like Properties in HER2+ Breast Cancer

    Researchers identified the long noncoding RNA, LINC00589 as a key regulatory node for concurrent intervention of multiple chemoresistance and cancer stem cell-like properties in breast cancer cells in vitro and in vivo.

    Sohlh2 Regulates the Stemness and Differentiation of Colon Cancer Stem Cells by Downregulating LncRNA-H19 Transcription

    Scientists demonstrated that Sohlh2 was related to the inhibition of LncRNA-H19/miR-141/β-catenin signaling and led to the consequent suppression of colon cancer stem cell (CSC) stemness and the promotion of colon CSC differentiation in vitro and in vivo.

    DOT1L Regulates Ovarian Cancer Stem Cells by Activating β-Catenin Signaling

    ShRNA-mediated H3K79 methyltransferase disruptor of telomeric silencing-1-like (DOT1L) knockdown decreased the aldehyde dehydrogenase + cell population, impaired the tumor initiation capacity of ovarian CSCs, and blocked the expression of stemness-associated genes.

    Extracellular Vesicles microRNA-592 of Melanoma Stem Cells Promotes Metastasis through Activation of MAPK/ERK Signaling Pathway by Targeting PTPN7 in Non-stemness Melanoma Cells

    Scientists demonstrated that the extracellular vesicles-mediated crosstalk between melanoma stem cells and melanoma parental cells was a novel mechanism for melanoma metastasis.

    Cancer-Associated Fibroblasts Promote the Stemness and Progression of Renal Cell Carcinoma via Exosomal miR-181d-5p

    Mechanistically, exosomal miR-181d-5p transferred from cancer associated fibroblasts to recal cell carcinoma cells directly suppressed the expression of ring finger protein 43, and activated the Wnt/β-catenin signaling pathway, thus promoting cancer stemness and tumor progression.

    Crosstalk Between HSF1 and STAT3 Mediated by IL-8 Autocrine Signaling Maintains the Cancer Stem Cell Phenotype in Liver Cancer

    Researchers established two liver cancer stem cells (LCSC) lines, HepG2-R and HuH-7-R. Constitutive activation of HSF1 was observed in these LCSCs.

    Cancer Stem Cells in Immunoregulation and Bypassing Anti-checkpoint Therapy

    The authors discuss about connections between CSCs with the immune ecosystem of tumors and the impact of such interactions on cancer responses to immune checkpoint inhibitor therapy.
