Cholangiogenic Potential of Human Deciduous Pulp Stem Cell-Converted Hepatocyte-Like Cells

Stem cells from human exfoliated deciduous teeth-derived hepatocytes were intrasplenically transplanted into chronically CCl4-treated liver fibrosis model mice, followed by the analysis of donor integration and hepatobiliary metabolism in vivo.

CCAAT/Enhancer-Binding Protein Delta Mediates Glioma Stem-Like Cell Enrichment and ATP-Binding Cassette Transporter ABCA1 Activation for Temozolomide Resistance in Glioblastoma

Scientists found that the CCAAT/Enhancer-binding protein delta (CEBPD) protein levels in glioblastoma patients were significantly increased and further contributed to temozolamide resistance by promoting glioma-like stem cell formation.

ABCA8-Mediated Efflux of Taurocholic Acid Contributes to Gemcitabine Insensitivity in Human Pancreatic Cancer via the S1PR2-ERK Pathway

Researchers found that the expression of ABCA8, a member of ABCA subfamily transporters, was significantly increased in human pancreatic cancer (PC) cells after gemcitabine (GEM) treatment, as well as in established GEM-resistant PC cells.

Metabolic Reprogramming and Predominance of Solute Carrier Genes during Acquired Enzalutamide Resistance in Prostate Cancer

The transcriptomic profile of paired enzalutamide-sensitive and resistant LNCaP and C4-2B prostate cancer cells were compared for identification of genes involved in drug resistance by performing an unbiased bioinformatics analysis and further validation. Next-Gen sequencing detected 9409 and 7757 genes differentially expressed in LNCaP and C4-2B cells, compared to their parental counterparts.

Significance of Aldo-Keto Reductase 1C3 and ATP-Binding Cassette Transporter B1 in Gain of Irinotecan Resistance in Colon Cancer Cells

Researchers established CPT11-resistant variants of three human colon cancer cell lines, and found that gain of the resistance elicited an up-regulation of aldo-keto reductase 1C3 in the cells.

In Vitro Function and In Situ Localization of Multidrug Resistance-Associated Protein (MRP)1 (ABCC1) Suggest a Protective Role against Methyl Mercury-Induced Oxidative Stress in the Human Placenta

The authors concluded that MRP1 protected placental cells from methyl mercury-induced oxidative stress by exporting the toxic metal and by maintaining the placental cells’ glutathione status in equilibrium.

Isocitrate Dehydrogenase 1 Mutation Enhances 24(S)-Hydroxycholesterol Production and Alters Cholesterol Homeostasis in Glioma

In isocitrate dehydrogenase 1-mutant glioma cells, the elevated 24(S)-hydroxycholesterol activated liver X receptors, which consequently accelerated the low-density lipoprotein receptor (LDLR) degradation by upregulating the inducible degrader of the LDLR.

Hedgehog-GLI Signalling Promotes Chemoresistance through the Regulation of ABC Transporters in Colorectal Cancer Cells

The authors identified potential GLI1 binding sites in the promoter region of six ABC transporters. Next, they investigated the binding of GLI1 using chromatin immunoprecipitation experiments and demonstrated that GLI1 transcriptionally regulated the identified ABC transporters. This research showed that chemoresistant cells express high levels of GLI1 and of the ABC transporters and that GLI1 inhibition disrupts the transporters up-regulation.
