Authors: Shan C, Li X, Zhang J Abstract Immune checkpoint inhibition has been shown to successfully reactivate T cell responses directed against tumor-associated antigens, resulting in significantly prolonged overall survival in patients with various types of solid tumors. Among them, cytotoxic T-lymphocyte protein 4 (CTLA-4) and programmed cell death protein 1 (PD-1) play key roles in tumor immune escape and are well-established targets of cancer immunotherapy. However, the low response rate PD-1 and CTLA-4 is a limitation and a challenge. Hence, studies have focused on investigating the tumor microenvironment for...

Authors: Zhu L, Yang X, Zhong D, Xie S, Shi W, Li Y, Hou X, HuaYao, Zhou H, Zhao M, Ding Z, Zhao X, Mo F, Yin S, Liu A, Lu X Abstract Retargeting the antigen-binding specificity of T cells to intracellular antigens that are degraded and presented on the tumor surface by engineering chimeric antigen receptor (CAR), also named TCR-like antibody CAR-T, remains limited. With the exception of the commercialized CD19 CAR-T for hematological malignancies and other CAR-T therapies aiming mostly at extracellular antigens achieving great success, the rareness and scarcity of TCR-like CAR-T therapies might be due to their cur...

Ferroptosis is a newly described type of programmed cell death and intensively related to both maintaining homeostasis and the development of diseases, especially cancers. Inducing ferroptosis leads to mitochondrial dysfunction and toxic lipid peroxidation in cells, which plays a pivotal role in suppressing cancer growth and progression. Here, we reviewed the existing studies about the molecular mechanisms of ferroptosis involved in different antitumor treatments, such as chemotherapy, targeted therapy, radiotherapy, and immunotherapy. We focused in particular on the distinct combinatorial therapeutic effects such as the s...

Ser/Arg-rich (SR) proteins are RNA-binding proteins known as constitutive and alternative splicing (AS) regulators that regulate multiple aspects of the gene expression program. Ser/Arg-rich splicing factor 3 (SRSF3) is the smallest member of the SR protein family, and its level is controlled by multiple factors and involves complex mechanisms in eukaryote cells, whereas the aberrant expression of SRSF3 is associated with many human diseases, including cancer. Here, we review state-of-the-art research on SRSF3 in terms of its function, expression, and misregulation in human cancers. We emphasize the negative consequences o...

Cancer is a threat to human health and life. Although previously centered on chemical drug treatments, cancer treatment has entered an era of precision targeted therapy. Targeted therapy entails precise guidance, allowing the selective killing of cancer cells and thereby reducing damage to healthy tissues. Therefore, the need to explore potential targets for tumor treatment is vital. Cyclin-dependent kinase regulatory subunit 1B (CKS1B), a member of the conserved cyclin kinase subunit 1 (CKS1) protein family, plays an essential role in cell cycling. A large number of studies have shown that CKS1B is associated with the pat...

izzarri Inositol and its phosphate metabolites play a pivotal role in several biochemical pathways and gene expression regulation: inositol pyrophosphates (PP-IPs) have been increasingly appreciated as key signaling modulators. Fluctuations in their intracellular levels hugely impact the transfer of phosphates and the phosphorylation status of several target proteins. Pharmacological modulation of the proteins associated with PP-IP activities has proved to be beneficial in various pathological settings. IP7 has been extensively studied and found to play a key role in pathways associated with PP-IP activities. Three ino...

heekh Red Seaweed “Rhodophyta” are an important group of macroalgae that include approximately 7000 species. They are a rich source of structurally diverse bioactive constituents, including protein, sulfated polysaccharides, pigments, polyunsaturated fatty acids, vitamins, minerals, and phenolic compounds with nutritional, medical, and industrial importance. Polysaccharides are the main components in the cell wall of red algae and represent about 40–50% of the dry weight, which are extensively utilized in industry and pharmaceutical compounds, due to their thickening and gelling properties...

An important context in which metabolism influences tumorigenesis is the genetic cancer syndrome hereditary leiomyomatosis and renal cell carcinoma (HLRCC), a disease in which mutation of the tricarboxylic acid cycle enzyme fumarate hydratase (FH) causes hyperaccumulation of fumarate. This electrophilic oncometabolite can alter gene activity at the level of transcription, via reversible inhibition of epigenetic dioxygenases, as well as posttranslationally, via covalent modification of cysteine residues. To better understand the potential for metabolites to influence posttranslational modifications important to tumorigenesi...

Prostate cancer remains a significant cause of cancer-related deaths in male population. More recently, accumulating evidence continues to implicate long non-coding RNAs (lncRNAs), microRNAs (miRNAs), and mRNAs in various types of cancers, including prostate cancer. The current study aimed to elucidate the role of lncRNA AGAP2-AS1/miR-195-5p/PDZ and LIM domain 5 (PDLIM5) in prostate cancer progression. Initially, microarray expression profiles were applied to screen differentially expressed lncRNAs/miRNAs/genes associated with prostate cancer. Dual-luciferase reporter and RNA pull-down/RIP assays were subsequently performe...
