As for protein-coding RNAs, epigenetic deregulation of lncRNA expression by alterations in DNA methylation might contribute to carcinogenesis. To provide genome-wide information on lncRNAs aberrantly methylated in breast cancer we profiled tumors of the C3(1) SV40TAg mouse model by MCIp-seq (Methylated CpG Immunoprecipitation followed by sequencing). This approach detected 69 lncRNAs differentially methylated between tumor tissue and normal mammary glands, with 26 located in antisense orientation of a protein-coding gene. One of the hypomethylated lncRNAs, 1810019D21Rik (now called Esrp2-antisense (as)) was identified in proximity to the epithelial splicing regulatory protein 2 (Esrp2) that is significantly elevated in C3(1) tumors. ESRPs seem to have a dual role in carcinogenesis. Both gain and loss has been associated with poor prognosis in human cancers, but the mechanism regulating expression is not known. In-depth analyses indicate that coordinate overexpression of Esrp2 and Esrp2-as inversely correlates with DNA methylation. Luciferase reporter gene assays support co-expression...

Authors: Zhou J, Zheng S, Liu T, Liu Q, Chen Y, Ma R, Tan D, Lu X Abstract Although M2 tumour-associated macrophages (M2 TAMs) have been shown to be associated with the progression and metastasis of breast cancer, their role in oesophageal squamous cell carcinoma (ESCC) remains less well understood. Therefore, to understand the clinicopathological significance of infiltrated M2 TAMs in ESCC, statistical analysis was performed after immunohistochemical evaluation of CD163 expression, a well-accepted surface marker of M2 TAMs in ESCC. To gain insight into the effect of M2 TAMs, ESCC cell lines Eca109 and KYSE150 cell...

Authors: Zhu X, Rao X, Yao W, Zou X Abstract Breast cancer is considered to be the most frequently diagnosed malignancy in women worldwide. MicroRNAs (miRNAs) play key roles in the regulation of tumor properties based on their capacity to regulate the expression of tumor-related genes. However, the involvement of miR-196b-5p in breast cancer development is largely unknown. Here, we showed that the expression levels of miR-196b-5p were significantly down-regulated in breast cancer samples and cell lines compared to the matched normal tissues and breast epithelial cell line, respectively. Notably, the expression of m...

We report the case of a 68-year-old Caucasian female with a family history of cancer. Core biopsy revealed that she had grade II oestrogen receptor-negative, Her2-positive invasive ductal carcinoma. She was offered neoadjuvant chemotherapy with Herceptin and subsequently underwent breast-conserving surgery. Microscopic examination of the post-treatment breast surgical specimen showed a partial pathological response with large areas of tumour regression. The sentinel lymph node showed frequent large single and multinucleate giant cells with hyperchromatic nuclei located predominantly within the subcapsular and medullary sin...

This study's researchers approached all people turning 85 in 2006 in two cities in the UK for participation. At the beginning of the study in 2006-2007, there were 722 participants, 60 percent of whom were women. The participants provided researchers with information about what they ate every day, their body weight and height measurements, their overall health assessment (including any level of disability), and their medical records. The researchers learned that more than one-quarter (28 percent) of very old adults had protein intakes below the recommended dietary allowance. The researchers noted that older adults w...

In this study we further explore the inhibitory effects of this molecule in cancer cells. We found that Pimozide inhibited cell proliferation in a dose- and time-dependent manner in MDA-MB-231 breast cancer cells and A549 lung cancer cells. Furthermore, we found that Pimozide also promoted apoptosis as demonstrated by cell cycle arrest and induction of double-strand DNA breaks but did not result in any effect in the non-transformed MCF10A breast cell line. In order to shed new lights into the molecular pathways affected by Pimozide, we show that Pimozide downregulated RAN GTPase and AKT at both protein and mRNA levels and ...

Contributors : Katrina Watson ; Robert Jones ; Anthony Bruce ; Roger MooreheadSeries Type : Expression profiling by high throughput sequencingOrganism : Mus musculusThe miR-200 family of microRNAs consisting of miR-141, miR-200a, miR-200b, miR-200c and miR-429 are key regulators of breast cancer progression. The miR200 family maintains mammary epithelial identity and downregulation of miR-200 expression drives the epithelial-to-mesenchymal transition. Re-expression of one or more miR-200 family members in tumor cells with mesenchymal characteristics may restore the epithelial phenotype and alter growth and metastatic poten...
