Stem Cell Characteristics Promote Aggressiveness of Diffuse Large B-Cell Lymphoma

Functional studies with gene-overexpressed and gene-silenced DLBCL cell lines showed that expression of NANOG and HOXA9 promoted cell viability and inhibited apoptosis through suppression of G2 arrest in vitro and enhanced tumor formation and hepatosplenic infiltration in a tail-vein-injected mouse model.

SHP2 Regulates the Development of Intestinal Epithelium by Modifying OSTERIX+ Crypt Stem Cell Self‐Renewal and Proliferation

OSTERIX, an OB‐specific zinc finger‐containing transcription factor was for the first time found to be expressed in gastrointestinal crypt cells, and SHP2 expression in the crypt Osx+ cells was critical for self‐renewal and proliferation.

Oncogenic KRAS-Expressing Organoids with Biliary Epithelial Stem Cell Properties Give Rise to Biliary Tract Cancer in Mice

Researchers isolated epithelial cell adhesion molecule-positive biliary epithelial cells from the mouse intrahepatic bile duct, gallbladder, and extrahepatic bile duct and established organoids derived from these cells.

Diltiazem Potentiates the Cytotoxicity of Gemcitabine and 5-Fluorouracil in PANC-1 Human Pancreatic Cancer Cells through Inhibition of P-Glycoprotein

The cytotoxic effect of diltiazem, gemcitabine, and 5-fluorouracil in single and combined forms against PANC-1 and AsPC-1 cells were assayed by MTT. Flow cytometric analysis was used for the determination of cell cycle, apoptosis, and stemness markers in pancreatic cancer cells.

Ablation of Neuropilin-1 Improves the Therapeutic Response in Conventional Drug-Resistant Glioblastoma Multiforme

Scientists observed that patient-derived glioblastoma cells expressing shRNAs of VEGF or neuropilin-1 attenuated cancer stem cell markers, inhibited the tumor-initiating cell’s neurosphere-forming capacity, and migration.

Aspirin Rescues Wnt-Driven Stem-Like Phenotype in Human Intestinal Organoids and Increases the Wnt Antagonist Dickkopf-1

Investigators evaluated aspirin-mediated effects on phenotype and stem cell markers in intestinal organoids derived from mouse and human familial adenomatous polyposis patients. colorectal cancer cell lines were used to study effects on motility, invasion, Wnt signalling and epithelial-mesenchymal transition.

SMOC2, an Intestinal Stem Cell Marker, Is an Independent Prognostic Marker Associated with Better Survival in Colorectal Cancers

Investigators showed that SPARC-related modular calcium-binding protein 2 transcript level was higher in colorectal cancer samples than in normal mucosa; this level was not associated with candidate cancer stem cell markers or intestinal stem cell markers except for OLFM4.
