After C–C motif chemokine ligand 2 (CCL2)-overexpressing human umbilical cord-derived MSCs were intravenously transplanted with mannitol in rats with middle cerebral arterial occlusion, scientists compared the differences between four different treatment groups: mannitol + CCL2-overexpressing hUC-MSCs, mannitol + naïve hUC-MSCs, mannitol only, and control.

MTT assays, flow cytometric analysis, Western blotting and immunohistochemistry identified that ZJQ-24 effectively suppressed hepatocellular carcinoma cell proliferation via G2/M phase arrest and caspase-dependent apoptosis but had no cytotoxic on normal cells.

Scientists observed widespread DNA methylation loss in G9a depleted and catalytic mutant ESCs. Furthermore, they defined how G9a regulates chromatin accessibility, epigenetic modifications, and transcriptional silencing in both catalytic-dependent and -independent manners.

The Androgen Receptor (AR) plays a critical role in the development of prostate cancer (PCa) through the activation of androgen-induced cellular proliferation genes. Using tailor-made splice switching Locked Nucleic Acid (LNA) oligos, scientists successfully redirected splicing of the AR pre-mRNA and destabilized the transcripts via the introduction of premature stop codons.

Polyphosphates (polyPs) are long chains of inorganic phosphates linked by phosphoanhydride bonds. They are found in all kingdoms of life, playing roles in cell growth, infection, and blood coagulation. Scientists demonstrated that internally produced polyP can activate diverse signaling pathways in human cells.
