Heterogeneous Glioma Cell Invasion under Interstitial Flow Depending on Their Differentiation Status

Researchers investigated how glioma initiating cells invaded 3D hydrogels in response to an interstitial flow with respect to their differentiation status. Microfluidic culture systems were used to apply an interstitial flow to the cells migrating from the cell aggregates into the 3D hydrogel.

Regulatory T Cells Promote Glioma Cell Stemness through TGF-β–NF-κB–IL6–STAT3 Signaling

Mechanistic investigations indicated that TGF-β acted on cancer cells to induce the core cancer stem cell-related genes CD133, SOX2, NESTIN, MUSASHI1 and ALDH1A expression and spheres formation via NF-κB–IL6–STAT3 signaling pathway, resulting in the increased cancer stemness and tumorigenic potential.

Piwil1 Regulates Glioma Stem Cell Maintenance and Glioblastoma Progression

Researchers report that Piwi-like family members were overexpressed in glioblastoma, with Piwil1 most frequently overexpressed. Piwil1 was enriched in glioma stem-like cells to maintain self-renewal.

Tumor Cell Network Integration in Glioma Represents a Stemness Feature

Glioblastoma cells that are part of the tumor microtube-connected tumor network showed activated neurodevelopmental and glioma progression gene expression pathways. Importantly, many of them revealed profiles indicative of increased cellular stemness, including high expression of nestin.

Human Mesenchymal Stromal/Stem Cells Recruit Resident Pericytes and Induce Blood Vessels Maturation to Repair Experimental Spinal Cord Injury in Rats

Proteomic analyses of human angiogenesis-related factors produced by human adipose tissue-derived stromal/stem cells (hADSCs) showed that both pro- and anti-angiogenic factors were produced by hADSCs in vitro, but only those related to vessel maturation were detectable in vivo.

Expression of a Novel Brain Specific Isoform of C3G Is Regulated during Development

Researchers identified brain specific expression of a novel C3G isoform in mice and humans. This isoform has an insert in the Crk-binding region, generating a polypeptide of 175 kDa, unlike the previously known 140 kDa form expressed in all other tissues.

Downregulation of the CCL2/CCR2 and CXCL10/CXCR3 Axes Contributes to Antitumor Effects in a Mouse Model of Malignant Glioma

Scientists studied the importance of paracrine signaling in the glioma microenvironment by focusing on the celecoxib-mediated role of chemokines C–C motif ligand 2, C-X-C ligand 10, and their receptors, CCR2 and CXCR3, in glioma stem cells (GSCs) and a GSC-bearing malignant glioma model.
