    Drives Glioblastoma Growth by Recruiting CBP to Promote FOXM1 Expression in Glioma Stem Cells

    Researchers showed that the Special AT‐rich Binding Protein‐2 (SATB2), one of the crucial nuclear matrix‐associated proteins, recruited histone acetyltransferase CBP to promote the FOXM1‐mediated cell proliferation and tumor growth of glioblastoma.

    Mucin 5AC Promotes Neoplastic Progression by Augmenting KLF4-Mediated Pancreatic Cancer Cell Stemness

    High-throughput RNA-sequencing analysis from pancreatic tissues of KCM animals revealed a significant decrease in cancer stem cell markers Aldh1a1, Klf4, EpCAM, and CD133.

    Receptor Substrate-1 (IRS-1) Mediates Progesterone Receptor-Driven Stemness and Endocrine Resistance in Oestrogen Receptor+ Breast Cancer

    The transcriptomes of primary tumors and metastases in mice harboring estrogen receptor+ breast cancer patient-derived xenografts were analyzed following single-cell RNAseq. In vitro assays were employed to delineate mechanisms of endocrine resistance and stemness.

    LHFPL3-AS1 Contributes to Tumorigenesis of Melanoma Stem Cells via the miR-181a-5p/BCL2 Pathway

    The authors revealed that the lncRNA LHFPL3-AS1-long, generated from the polypyrimidine tract binding protein 1-mediated splicing of the LHFPL3-AS1 precursor, upregulated B-cell lymphoma-2 (BCL2) protein to contribute to tumorigenesis of melanoma stem cells.

    Tumor DNA (ctDNA) Detection Is Associated with Shorter Progression-Free Survival in Advanced Melanoma Patients

    Investigators proposed to standardize a liquid biopsy platform to identify hotspot mutations in BRAF, NRAS and TERT in plasma samples from advanced melanoma patients and investigated whether it was associated to clinical outcome.

    HIF1α/JMY Pathway Promotes Glioblastoma Stem-Like Cell Invasiveness after Irradiation

    Scientists showed that ionizing radiation specifically enhanced the motility and invasiveness of human glioma stem cells through the stabilization and nuclear accumulation of the hypoxia-inducible factor 1α (HIF1α), which in turn transcriptionally activated the Junction-mediating and regulatory protein.

    Sensitivities of Triple-Negative Breast Cancer Stem Cell towards Various Doses of Vitamin C: An Insight into the Internal Antioxidant Systems

    The authors investigated the cellular energetics of two triple‐negative breast cancer stem cells treated with two pharmacological doses of vitamin C that generated reactive oxygen species.

    Potential Use of Tideglusib as an Adjuvant Radio-Therapeutic Treatment for Glioblastoma Multiforme Cancer Stem-Like Cells

    Treatment with Tideglusib alone and in combination with radiation significantly decreased the colony formation of U-251 MG cells and the sphere formation of both cell lines, by targeting and reducing their glioblastoma cancer stem-like cell population.

    of STIP1 Inhibits the Invasion of CD133-Positive Cancer Stem-Like Cells of the Osteosarcoma MG63 Cell Line via the PI3K/Akt and ERK1/2 Pathways

    CD133‑positive osteosarcoma CSCs were first isolated and cultured by magnetic cell sorting and serum‑free medium suspension cell sphere culture, respectively.

    Cancers, Mammary Stem Cells, and Cancer Stem Cells, Characteristics, and Hypotheses

    Two models have been proposed to explain the cell of origin of breast cancer and involve either the reprogramming of differentiated mammary cells or the dysregulation of mammary stem cells or progenitors. Both hypotheses are not exclusive and imply the accumulation of independent mutational events.
