Potential hepatic stem cells reside in EpCAM+ cells of normal and injured mouse liver
TLDR
Comparison of the colony formation of EpCAM+ cells in normal and injured liver reveals little difference in the number of potential HSCs, strongly suggesting that most proliferating mouse oval cells represent transit-amplifying cells rather than H SCs.
Nonalcoholic fatty liver disease: US-based acoustic radiation force impulse elastography.
TLDR
There is a significant positive correlation between median velocity measured by using ARFI sonoelastography and severity of liver fibrosis in patients with NAFLD.
Glioma‐Initiating Cell Elimination by Metformin Activation of FOXO3 via AMPK
TLDR
The findings demonstrate that targeting glioma‐initiating cells via the AMPK‐FOXO3 axis is a viable therapeutic strategy against glioblastoma, with metformin being the most clinically relevant drug ever reported for targeting of gliumorigenic cells.
Transforming growth factor beta signaling via Ras in mesenchymal cells requires p21-activated kinase 2 for extracellular signal-regulated kinase-dependent transcriptional responses.
TLDR
Findings show the requirement for crosstalk between two Smad-independent pathways in regulating TGF-beta proliferation and indicate that the mechanism(s) by which T GF-beta stimulates growth is not simply the opposite of its growth inhibitory actions.
Crosstalk Between the PI3K/mTOR and MEK/ERK Pathways Involved in the Maintenance of Self‐Renewal and Tumorigenicity of Glioblastoma Stem‐Like Cells
TLDR
There is p70S6K‐mediated, cross‐inhibitory regulation between the MEK/ERK and PI3K/mTOR pathways, in which each contribute to the maintenance of the self‐renewal and tumorigenic capacity of glioblastoma CSLCs.
Transforming growth factor-beta activation of phosphatidylinositol 3-kinase is independent of Smad2 and Smad3 and regulates fibroblast responses via p21-activated kinase-2.
TLDR
It is determined that TGF-beta receptor signaling activates phosphatidylinositol 3-kinase (PI3K) in several fibroblast but not epithelial cultures independently of Smad2 and Smad3.
Preclinical characterization of the antiglioma activity of a tropism-enhanced adenovirus targeted to the retinoblastoma pathway.
TLDR
The antiglioma activity of the tumor-selective Delta-24 adenovirus suggests that it has the potential to be an effective agent in the treatment of gliomas.
A combination of TERT promoter mutation and MGMT methylation status predicts clinically relevant subgroups of newly diagnosed glioblastomas
TLDR
The findings suggest that a combination of IDH, TERT, and MGMT refines the classification of grade II-IV diffuse gliomas, and patients with TERT mutant-MGMT unmethylated GBM have the poorest prognosis.
