Expression Pattern and Prognostic Impact of Glycoprotein Non-Metastatic B (GPNMB) in Triple-Negative Breast Cancer

Among 759 specimens, immunohistochemistry exhibited glycoprotein non-metastatic B (GPNMB) expressions were variable in different subtypes and significantly higher in TNBC. GPNMB positively correlated with epithelial–mesenchymal transition regulators, mesenchymal marker vimentin, MMP and integrins.

Interpretable Deep Learning Uncovers Cellular Properties in Label-Free Live Cell Images That Are Predictive of Highly Metastatic Melanoma

The exaggerated images unveiled pseudopodial extensions and increased light scattering as hallmark properties of metastatic cells. Scientists validated this interpretation using live cells spontaneously transitioning between states indicative of low and high metastatic efficiency.

Activated Natural Killer Cells Predict Poor Clinical Prognosis in High-Risk B- and T-Cell Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia

Researchers delineated the phenotypic and functional defects in NK cells of high-risk B- and T- cell acute lymphoblastic leukemia (ALL) patients using mass, flow, and in silico cytometry, with the goal of further elucidating the role of NK cells in sustaining ALL regression.

Host-Pathogen Immune Feedbacks Can Explain Widely Divergent Outcomes from Similar Infections

The authors hypothesized that divergent infection outcomes were a natural result of mutual negative feedbacks between pathogens and the host immune response.

SFRP2 Induces a Mesenchymal Subtype Transition by Suppression of SOX2 in Glioblastoma

Investigators present SFRP2 as a SOX2-antagonist with the capacity to induce a mesenchymal subtype transition in glioma cells located in vascular tumor areas, highlighting its role in glioblastoma tumor evolution and intratumoral heterogeneity.

Neuron and Astrocyte Aggregation and Sorting in Three-Dimensional Neuronal Constructs

Linear, adhered rat and human 3D neuronal-astrocyte cultures were developed to enable the study of aggregation and sorting of these cells. An in silico model of the contraction, clustering, and cell sorting in the 3D cultures was also developed.

iPSC–Endothelial Cell Phenotypic Drug Screening and In Silico Analyses Identify Tyrphostin-AG1296 for Pulmonary Arterial Hypertension

Induced pluripotent stem cell-derived endothelial cells generated from six patients with pulmonary arterial hypertension were exposed to 4500 compounds and assayed for improved cell survival after serum withdrawal using a chemiluminescent caspase assay.
