Induction of Cell Death in Pancreatic Tumors by Zinc and Its Florescence Chelator TSQ

Upon treatment with N,N,N′,N′-tetrakis(2-pyridinylmethyl)-1,2-ethanediamine, a zinc chelator, organoids degenerated and its negative effect was rescued by co-treatment with zinc, indicating that zinc is necessary for the growth and survival of tumor organoids.

T Cells Armed with C-X-C Chemokine Receptor Type 6 Enhance Adoptive Cell Therapy for Pancreatic Tumours

Researchers showed that forced expression of C-X-C chemokine receptor type 6 in antigen-specific T cells enhanced the recognition and lysis of pancreatic cancer cells and the efficacy of adoptive cell therapy for pancreatic cancer.

miR-194-5p Down-Regulates Tumor Cell PD-L1 Expression and Promotes Anti-tumor Immunity in Pancreatic Cancer

Investigators found that high expression of miR-194-5p in human pancreatic cancer patients is associated with a better survival rate, while increased expression of programmed cell death ligand 1 in human pancreatic cancer patients is associated with a worse survival rate.

In Vitro Assessment of a Synergistic Combination of Gemcitabine and Zebularine in Pancreatic Cancer Cells

Reserachers investigated the effect of a cytidine deaminase inhibitor – Zebularine (Zeb) on anticancer activity of Gem in pancreatic cancer cell lines MiaPaCa-2, BxPC-3, and Panc-1. Zeb treatment synergistically increased Gem-induced cytotoxicity in all three pancreatic cancer cell lines.

Oncogenic KRAS Engages an RSK1/NF1 Pathway to Inhibit Wild-Type RAS Signaling in Pancreatic Cancer

Investigators used proximity labeling to identify protein interactors of active KRAS in pancreatic ductal adenocarcinoma (PDAC) cells. We expressed fusions of wild-type (WT) (BirA-KRAS4B), mutant (BirA-KRAS4BG12D), and nontransforming cytosolic double mutant (BirA-KRAS4BG12D/C185S) KRAS with the BirA biotin ligase in murine PDAC cells.

C646 Inhibits G2/M Cell Cycle-Related Proteins and Potentiates Anti-Tumor Effects in Pancreatic Cancer

Investigators found that the histone acetyltransferases inhibitor C646 augmented anti-tumor effects in vitro by inhibiting cell proliferation and cell cycle progression concomitantly with suppression of acetylated H3K9 and H3K27 expression.
