    The Lysophospholipase D Enzyme Gdpd3 Is Required to Maintain Chronic Myelogenous Leukemia Stem Cells

    Investigators showed that disruption of the Gdpd3 gene encoding a lysophospholipase D enzyme significantly decreased self-renewal capacity in murine chronic myelogenous leukemia stem cells in vivo.

    SPT6-Driven Error-Free DNA Repair Safeguards Genomic Stability of Glioblastoma Cancer Stem-Like Cells

    Researchers presented the results of a high-content siRNA microscopy screen, revealing the transcriptional elongation factor SPT6 to be critical for the genomic stability and self-renewal of glioblastoma cancer-stem like cells.

    LncRNA HotairM1 Depletion Promotes Self-Renewal of Cancer Stem Cells through HOXA1-Nanog Regulation Loop

    Based on analysis of transcriptome sequencing, scientists identified a long noncoding RNA (lncRNA) named HotairM1 that was weakly expressed in human colorectal carcinoma and uveal melanoma, and a much lower expression in corresponding CSCs.

    Wnt/β-Catenin Signaling Pathway Induces Autophagy-Mediated Temozolomide-Resistance in Human Glioblastoma

    Investigators demonstrated that the loss of DOC-2/DAB2 interacting protein (DAB2IP) was responsible for temozolomide (TMZ)-resistance in glioblastoma multiforme (GBM) through ATG9B. DAB2IP sensitized GBM to TMZ and suppressed TMZ-induced autophagy by negatively regulating ATG9B expression.

    Attenuating Hypoxia Driven Malignant Behavior in Glioblastoma with a Novel Hypoxia-Inducible Factor 2 Alpha Inhibitor

    Scientists investigated a novel hypoxia inducible factor2α inhibitor, PT2385, both in vitro, with low-passage patient-derived cell lines, and in vivo, using orthotopic models of glioblastoma.

    Quantitative In Vivo Bioluminescence Imaging of Orthotopic Patient-Derived Glioblastoma Xenografts

    The authors showed that stable expression of near-infrared fluorescent protein in patient-derived glioblastoma cells enabled rapid, direct non-invasive monitoring of tumor development without compromising tumor stemness or tumorigenicity.

    Matrix Metalloprotease-7 Mediates Nucleolar Assembly & Intra-Nucleolar Cleaving p53 in Gefitinib Resistant Cancer Stem Cells

    Investigators showed that matrix metalloproteinase-7 shedding MUC-1 SEA domain releases MUC-1 C-ter facilitating the nucleolus trafficking of p53 in gefitinib-resistant lung cancer stem cells.

    The Role of Breast Cancer Stem Cell-Related Biomarkers as Prognostic Factors

    The cell-surface and subcellular biomarkers related to breast cancer stem cell (BCSC) phenotypes are increasingly being recognised. These biomarkers are useful for the isolation of BCSCs and can serve as potential therapeutic targets and prognostic tools to monitor treatment responses.

    The Role of Smoothened in Cancer

    Smoothened (SMO) expression correlates with tumor size, invasiveness, metastasis and recurrence. In addition, SMO inhibitors can suppress cancer formation, reduce the proliferation of cancer cells, trigger apoptosis and suppress cancer stem cell activity.
