Characterizing the tumor microenvironment of metastatic ovarian cancer by single-cell transcriptomics.

Cell Rep 2021 05;35(8):109165

Section of Genetic Medicine, Department of Medicine, University of Chicago, 5841 S. Maryland Avenue, Chicago, IL 60637, USA. Electronic address:

Understanding the cellular composition of the tumor microenvironment and the interactions of the cells is essential to the development of successful immunotherapies in cancer. We perform single-cell RNA sequencing (scRNA-seq) of 9,885 cells isolated from the omentum in 6 patients with ovarian cancer and identify 9 major cell types, including cancer, stromal, and immune cells. Transcriptional analysis of immune cells stratifies our patient samples into 2 groups: (1) high T cell infiltration (high T) and (2) low T cell infiltration (low T). Read More

Modulation of Immune Infiltration of Ovarian Cancer Tumor Microenvironment by Specific Subpopulations of Fibroblasts.

Cancers (Basel) 2020 Oct 29;12(11). Epub 2020 Oct 29.

Indiana University School of Medicine-Bloomington, Indiana University, Bloomington, IN 47405, USA.

Tumor immune infiltration plays a key role in the progression of solid tumors, including ovarian cancer, and immunotherapies are rapidly emerging as effective treatment modalities. However, the role of cancer-associated fibroblasts (CAFs), a predominant stromal constituent, in determining the tumor-immune microenvironment and modulating efficacy of immunotherapies remains poorly understood. We have conducted an extensive bioinformatic analysis of our and other publicly available ovarian cancer datasets (GSE137237, GSE132289 and GSE71340), to determine the correlation of fibroblast subtypes within the tumor microenvironment (TME) with the characteristics of tumor-immune infiltration.

Roles of omental and bone marrow adipocytes in tumor biology.

Adipocyte 2019 12;8(1):304-317

a Department of Pathology, Yonsei University College of Medicine , Seoul , South Korea.

Accumulating evidence highlights the importance of interactions between tumour cells and stromal cells for tumour initiation, progression, and metastasis. In tumours that contain adipocyte in their stroma, adipocytes contribute to modification of tumour microenvironment and affect metabolism of tumour and tumour progression by production of cytokines and adipokines from the lipids. The omentum and bone marrow (BM) are highly adipocyte-rich and are also common metastatic and primary tumour developmental sites. Read More
