Stimulation of CD95/Fas drives and maintains cancer stem cells (CSCs). We now report that this involves activation of signal transducer and activator of transcription 1 (STAT1) and induction of STAT1-regulated genes and that this process is inhibited by active caspases. STAT1 is enriched in CSCs in cancer cell lines, patient-derived human breast cancer, and(More)
>80% of a large number of siRNAs and shRNAs targeting CD95 or CD95 ligand (CD95L) induce a form of cell death that is characterized by the simultaneous activation of multiple death pathways and preferentially affects transformed and cancer stem cells. We now show that these si/shRNAs kill cancer cells through canonical RNAi by targeting the 3’UTR of(More)
