p57 Suppresses the Pluripotency and Proliferation of Mouse Embryonic Stem Cells by Positively Regulating p53 Activation

Scientists discovered that p57Kip2 (p57), a cyclin-dependent kinase inhibitor canonically inhibiting cell proliferation, played a role in suppressing the pluripotency state of mouse ESCs.

HIF1α/HIF2α Induces Glioma Cell Dedifferentiation into Cancer Stem Cells through Sox2 under Hypoxic Conditions

Scientists performed a series of experiments to verify whether HIF1α, HIF2α and Sox2 regulated glioma cell dedifferentiation under hypoxic conditions. Sphere formation by single glioma cells was observed, and CD133 and CD15 expression was compared between the normoxic and hypoxic groups.

The Opposing Action of Stromal Cell Proenkephalin and Stem Cell Transcription Factors in Prostate Cancer Differentiation

Researchers found that prostate cancer cells appeared to retain their responsiveness to stromal proenkephalin (PENK) signaling. PENK could induce differentiation to counter de-differentiation caused by stem cell transcription factor activation.

Copper Depletion Modulates Mitochondrial Oxidative Phosphorylation to Impair Triple Negative Breast Cancer Metastasis

Using two independent TNBC models, the authors reported a discrete subpopulation of highly metastatic SOX2/OCT4+ cells within primary tumors that exhibitrf elevated intracellular copper levels and a marked sensitivity to tetrathiomolybdate.

Sox-Positive Cell Population in the Adult Cerebellum Increases upon Tissue Degeneration

A Bergmann glia population was analyzed in the adult cerebellum of different species and showed conservation of neural stem cell-associated marker expression including Sox1, Sox2 and Sox9, in chick, primate and mouse cerebellum tissue.

Metformin Promotes the Hair-Inductive Activity of Three-Dimensional Aggregates of Epidermal and Dermal Cells Self-Assembled In Vitro

Scientists assessed the effect of metformin on hair growth in a mouse hair follicle reconstitution model generated by in vitro self-assembled 3D aggregates of epidermal and dermal cells and suggested that metformin could promote hair follicle regeneration through up-regulation of the hair inductive capability of dermal cells.
