Transforming growth factor beta 1 (TGF β1) polymorphisms and haplotype structures have dual roles in breast cancer pathogenesis.

CONCLUSION: The present study indicates that TGFB1 variants have subtype-specific roles in BC and may switch from tumor suppressor to promoter during tumor development, consistent with TGFβ1 dual role in BC pathogenesis. PMID: 29362917 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

Abstract The American Joint Committee on Cancer staging system has evolved in response to improved imaging, refined surgical techniques, enhanced pathologic evaluation, and greater understanding of tumor biology. The 8th edition has introduced clinical and pathologic prognostic stages for breast cancer that incorporate biologic variables (grade, estrogen/progesterone receptor status, HER2 status, multigene panels) with TNM categories that define the anatomic stage. The prognostic staging system facilitates more refined stratification than the anatomic stage with respect to survival and is an important advance that...

CONCLUSIONS: The obtained data indicate that hypermethylated p16 and RASSF1A cell-cycle inhibitor genes might be considered as biomarkers for bad prognosis in breast cancer. Hypermethylation of these genes may influence the clinical disease course, distinguishing a particular group of TNBC patients with even more aggressive phenotype. PMID: 30003738 [PubMed - in process]

The NCI Laboratory of Cancer Biology and Genetics seeks parties interested in collaborative research to further develop this mouse model of triple-negative breast cancer (TNBC) to study cancer biology and for preclinical testing.   As a Research Tool, patent protection is not being pursued for this technology. Basal triple-negative breast cancer (TNBC) is a common form of human breast cancer for which there are no specific, targeted therapies, unlike hormone-responsive or Her2+ breast cancers. TNBC has a much worse prognosis than hormone receptor + cancer and is disproportionately high in the African-American populati...

The SK-BR-3 cell line is one of the most important models for HER2+ breast cancers, which affect one in five breast cancer patients. SK-BR-3 is known to be highly rearranged, although much of the variation is in complex and repetitive regions that may be underreported. Addressing this, we sequenced SK-BR-3 using long-read single molecule sequencing from Pacific Biosciences and develop one of the most detailed maps of structural variations (SVs) in a cancer genome available, with nearly 20,000 variants present, most of which were missed by short-read sequencing. Surrounding the important ERBB2 oncogene (also known as HER2),...
