Intestinal Epithelial Expression of MHCII Determines Severity of Chemical, T Cell-Induced, and Infectious Colitis in Mice

In mice with dextran sodium sulfate or T cell-induced colitis, loss of histocompatibility complex class II (MHCII) from Intestinal epithelial cells reduced but did not eliminate mucosal inflammation. However, in mice with C rodentium-induced colitis, loss of MHCII reduced bacterial clearance by decreasing binding of IgA to commensal and pathogenic bacteria.

Epithelial-Derived Gasdermin D Mediates Nonlytic IL-1β Release during Experimental Colitis

Scientists report a nonpyroptotic role of full-length Gasdermin D in guiding the release of IL-1β–containing small extracellular vesicles from intestinal epithelial cells .

SOX18 Promotes Gastric Cancer Metastasis through Transactivating MCAM and CCL7

Investigators defined a C-C motif chemokine ligand 7-CCR1-SRY-box transcription factor positive feedback loop that played a pivotal role in gastric cancer metastasis


CDK5RAP3 as Tumor Suppressor Negatively Regulates Self-Renewal and Invasion and is Regulated by ERK1/2 Signaling in Human Gastric Cancer

Results demonstrated that CDK5 regulatory subunit-associated protein 3 was suppressed by extracellular-related kinase signalling and negatively regulated the self-renewal and epithelial-to-mesenchymal transition of gastric cancer stem-like cells.

Reduced Replication Origin Licensing Selectively Kills Kras-Mutant Colorectal Cancer Cells via Mitotic Catastrophe

Scientists showed vulnerability of KRAS-mutant cells towards suppression of minichromosome maintenance complex component 7 and suggested that inhibiting DNA replication licensing might be a viable strategy to target KRAS-mutant cancers.

Exosomal MiR‐500a‐3p Promotes Cisplatin Resistance and Stemness via Negatively Regulating FBXW7 in Gastric Cancer

Researchers found that microRNA‐500a‐3p was highly expressed in cisplatin resistant gastric cancer cells and their secreted exosomes than that in the corresponding parental cells.

Deterministic Culturing of Single Cells in 3D

Scientists presented an alternate method to culture individually selected cells in relative isolation from the rest of the population under physiologically relevant matrix conditions. Using examples of breast and colorectal cancers, scientists showed that individual cells evolved into tumors or aspects of tumors displaying different characteristics of the initial cancer type and aggressiveness.

NRAS Mutant E132K Identified in Young-Onset Sporadic Colorectal Cancer and the Canonical Mutants G12D and Q61K Affect Distinct Oncogenic Phenotypes

The novel NRAS mutant E132K, identified in three tumor samples from Filipino young-onset, sporadic colorectal cancer patients, was investigated for its effects on different cancer hallmarks, alongside the NRAS canonical mutants G12D and Q61K which were yet poorly characterized in the context of colorectal cancer.
