Glioblastoma Cancer Stem Cells Evade Innate Immune Suppression of Self-Renewal through Reduced TLR4 Expression

Bhaskar Chanda Stem Cell Alvarado et al. demonstrate that glioblastoma cancer stem cells express a lower level of the innate immune receptor TLR4 than surrounding cells, which allows them to avoid inhibitory innate immune signaling that would otherwise suppress self-renewal. 12 more words

Immunosuppression via Loss of IL2rγ Enhances Long-Term Functional Integration of hESC-Derived Photoreceptors in the Mouse Retina

Bhaskar Chanda Stem Cell Lamba and colleagues show that immunosuppression can significantly improve the survival and functional integration of hESC-derived cells into recipient mouse retinas as far out as 9 months, suggesting that immunosuppression may be a useful way to enhance clinical cell transplantation outcomes for patients even in a location traditionally considered immune-privileged. 12 more words

Human AML-iPSCs Reacquire Leukemic Properties after Differentiation and Model Clonal Variation of Disease

Bhaskar Chanda Stem Cell Chao et al. show that MLL-rearranged AML patient cells can be reprogrammed into induced pluripotent stem cells (iPSCs). These cells reacquire leukemic properties and associated methylation/gene expression patterns after hematopoietic differentiation and provide a means to study the differential properties of specific disease subclones. 12 more words
