Atractylenolide I Enhances Responsiveness to Immune Checkpoint Blockade Therapy by Activating Tumor Antigen Presentation

In syngeneic mouse colorectal cancer (CRC) models and human patient-derived CRC organoid models, atractylenolide I treatment promoted the cytotoxicity of CD8+ T cells and thus profoundly enhanced the efficacy of immune checkpoint blockade therapy.

Mutant KRAS Triggers Functional Reprogramming of Tumor-Associated Macrophages in Colorectal Cancer

Mutationally activated KRAS in tumor cells reprograms macrophages to a tumor-associated macrophage-like phenotype via a combination effect of tumor-derived CSF2 and lactate.

LncRNA UCC Promotes Epithelial–Mesenchymal Transition via the miR-143-3p/SOX5 Axis in Non-Small-Cell Lung Cancer

A dual-luciferase reporter system and RIP assays showed that UCC specifically bound to miR-143-3p and acted as a sponge of miR-143-3p in NSCLC cells.

Enhanced Anti-Cancer Activity of Andrographis with Oligomeric Proanthocyanidins through Activation of Metabolic and Ferroptosis Pathways in Colorectal Cancer

Scientists demonstrated the enhanced anti-cancer activity between two botanical extracts in terms of their ability to inhibit cancer cell growth, suppress colony formation and induce apoptosis. They validated these findings in subcutaneous xenograft models and in patient derived primary epithelial 3D organoids.

Utidelone Inhibits Growth of Colorectal Cancer Cells through ROS/JNK Signaling Pathway

Utidelone (UTD1) dramatically inhibited colorectal cancer cell proliferation in vitro. Immunofluorescence staining showed that UTD1 induced the formation of microtubule bundling and asters in RKO cells.

Generation of Two Induced Pluripotent Stem Cell Lines from Blood Cells of a Prostate Cancer Patient Carrying Germline Mutation in CHEK2

The authors generated two iPSC lines ZNHi001-A and ZNHi001-B from a prostate cancer patient carrying germline mutation in CHEK2 which might increase the risk of prostate cancer. Pluripotency and multi-lineage differentiation capacity of the two iPSC lines were confirmed by gene expression and teratoma assay.
