    YAP/BRD4-Controlled ROR1 Promotes Tumor-Initiating Cells and Hyperproliferation in Pancreatic Cancer

    Scientists showed that a cellular subpopulation with partial epithelial-mesenchymal transition-like signature marked by high expression of receptor tyrosine kinase-like orphan receptor 1 (ROR1) was the origin of heterogeneous tumor cells in pancreatic ductal adenocarcinoma.

    Stem-Like Signatures in Human Meningioma Cells Are under the Control of CXCL11/CXCL12 Chemokine Activity

    Meningioma stem cells were isolated from patient-derived primary cultures in stem cell-permissive conditions, and characterized for phenotype, self-renewal, proliferation and migration rates, vasculogenic mimicry, and in vivo tumorigenesis.


    FAM129A Promotes Self-Renewal and Maintains Invasive Status via Stabilizing the Notch Intracellular Domain in Glioma Stem Cells

    Scientists comprehensively evaluated the significance of a novel invasion-related protein, Family with Sequence Similarity 129 Member A (FAM129A), in infiltrative glioma stem cells.

    The Myo-Inositol Biosynthesis Rate-Limiting Enzyme ISYNA1 Suppresses the Stemness of Ovarian Cancer via Notch1 Pathway

    Researchers reported ISYNA1, the rate-limiting enzyme in myo-inositol biosynthesis, as a suppressor of ovarian cancer (OC) regulating cancer stemness, identifying ISYNA1 as a differentially expressed gene in normal ovary and ovarian cancer tissues, as well as OC cells and ovarian cancer stem cells.

    Mechanobiology and Survival Strategies of Circulating Tumor Cells: A Process Towards the Invasive and Metastatic Phenotype

    To better understand circulating tumor cells (CTC) journey in the microcirculation as part of the metastatic cascade, scientists review how CTC mechanobiology and interaction with other cell types in the bloodstream help them to survive the harsh conditions in the circulatory system and to metastasize in distant organs.

    A Comprehensive Review on Phytomedicines and Their Effect on Cancer Stem Cells and Metastasis

    The authors focus on the plant-derived compounds that aid in cancer therapy by inhibiting cancer stem cells, metastasis, creating immunogenic responses, along with summarizing on miRNAs involved in cancer and regulating the plant-based drugs and vice-versa.
