Suppression of Elevated Cdc42 Activity Promotes the Regenerative Potential of Aged Intestinal Stem Cells

Elevation of Cdc42 activity in young animals by genetic means causes premature ISC aging, whereas pharmacological suppression of elevated Cdc42 activity restores organoid formation potential in vitro.

The Murine Intestinal Stem Cells Are Highly Sensitive to the Modulation of the T3/TRα1-Dependent Pathway

By using ex vivo 3D organoid cultures and molecular approaches scientists observed early responses to T3 involving the T3-metabolizing enzyme Dio1 and the transporter Mct10, accompanied by a complex response of stem cell- and progenitor-enriched genes.

Signaling Pathways in Intestinal Homeostasis and Colorectal Cancer: KRAS at Centre Stage

Scientists summarize the signaling pathways contributing to intestinal cell fates and homeostasis functions, focusing on intestinal stem cell proliferation, cell junction formation, remodeling, hypoxia, the impact of intestinal microbiota, the immune system, inflammation, and metabolism.

MAP3K2-Regulated Intestinal Stromal Cells Define a Distinct Stem Cell Niche

To determine the physiological role of MAP3K2-regulated intestinal stromal cells (MRISCs), scientists co-cultured MRISCs with colonic organoids and found that organoid growth was greater than when co-cultured with MRISC-depleted stromal cells

Macrophage-Derived EDA-A2 Inhibits Intestinal Stem Cells by Targeting miR-494/EDA2R/β-Catenin Signaling in Mice

In colitis crypts, a notable cytokine–cytokine receptor, miR-494-3p-targeted EDA2R and the ligand EDA-A2, suppressed colonic stemness and epithelial repair by inhibiting β-catenin/c-Myc. In differentiated intestinal epithelial cells, miR-494-3p inhibited macrophage recruitment, M1 activation and EDA-A2 secretion by targeting IKKβ/NF-κB in colitis.

New Insights and Enhanced Human Norovirus Cultivation in Human Intestinal Enteroids

Human intestinal stem cell-derived enteroids did not support virus replication from every HuNoV-positive stool sample, which led the authors to test and optimize new medium conditions, identify characteristics of stool samples that allow replication, and evaluate consistency of replication over time.

A Constant Pool of Lgr5+ Intestinal Stem Cells Is Required for Intestinal Homeostasis

Using a Lgr5-2A-DTR model, which ablates Lgr5+ cells with near-complete efficiency and retains endogenous levels of Lgr5 expression, researchers showed that persistent depletion of Lgr5+ intestinal stem cells in fact compromised small intestinal epithelial integrity and reduced epithelial turnover in vivo.
