MGST1 Is a Redox-Sensitive Repressor of Ferroptosis in Pancreatic Cancer Cells

Scientists showed a key role of MGST1 in inhibiting ferroptosis in cell cultures and mouse xenograft models. Ferroptosis activators induced MGST1 upregulation in human PDAC cell lines in an NFE2L2-dependent manner.

The PSMA Targeting Half-Life Extended BiTE® Therapy AMG 160 Has Potent Antitumor Activity in Preclinical Models of Metastatic Castration-Resistant Prostate Cancer

Researchers developed AMG 160, a half-life extended bispecific T-cell engager (HLE BiTE®) immuno-oncology therapy that bound prostate-specific membrane antigen (PSMA) on prostate cancer cells and CD3 on T cells for treatment of metastatic castration-resistant prostate cancer.

Functional Hierarchy and Cooperation of EMT Master Transcription Factors in Breast Cancer Metastasis

Scientists provided strong evidence that epithelial-to-mesenchymal transition (EMT) was orchestrated by coordinated expression of several EMT- transcription factors and established ZEB1 as a key master regulator of EMT and metastasis in breast cancer.

Long Noncoding RNA SNHG1 Promotes Human Prostate Cancer Progression by Sponging miR-383-5p

Investigators found the level of small nucleolar RNA host gene 1 (SNHG1) was significantly upregulated in prostate cancer tissues and cells. Knockdown of SNHG1 significantly suppressed proliferation, migration and invasion and promoted cell apoptosis in prostate cancer cells.
