The genes modulated by CAF secreted factors were characterized by a specific DNA methylation pattern: hypermethylation at transcription start site (TSS) and shore regions. Approximately 60% of them exhibited a methylation-dependent expression level and 20% of them were also dependent on the methyl-CpG-binding protein domain 2. Thus, these specific DNA methylation patterns were linked to an epigenetic control of their expression, upon CAF-secreted factors. We have therefore identified some molecular events defining the responsiveness of groups of genes to stromal cell contents in human breast tumors.

This study aimed to clarify the underlying signaling pathways of ceramide and S1P involved in breast cancer cell proliferation. Ceramide acyl chain length is determined by six mammalian ceramide synthases (CerS). We overexpressed CerS1 to 6 in MCF‑7 cells to examine whether ceramide signaling propagation varies as a function of acyl chain length. Among the six CerS, only CerS6 overexpression reduced phosphorylation of Akt, S6 kinase (S6K), and extracellular signal‑regulated kinases (ERK) as shown by western blotting. In addition, CerS6 overexpression reduced MCF‑7 cell proliferation. This effect was partially re...

Authors: Schmitt C, Lucius R, Synowitz M, Held-Feindt J, Hattermann K Abstract Highly malignant gliomas are characterized by pronounced intra‑ and intertumoral heterogeneity. On the genetic level, this heterogeneity may be caused by spontaneous mutation events, but recent studies have reported distinct mutational signatures that may be caused by an enzyme family with cytidine desaminase activity, the apolipoprotein B mRNA editing enzyme catalytic polypeptide‑like (APOBEC) proteins. Among these, APOBEC3B contributes to tumor progression in a variety of types of tumor, including breast cancer. In the present...

Overexpression of Epsin 3 enhances migration and invasion of glioma cells by inducing epithelial‑mesenchymal transition. Oncol Rep. 2018 Sep 10;: Authors: Wang Y, Song W, Kan P, Huang C, Ma Z, Wu Q, Yao X, Zhang B Abstract Epsin 3 (EPN3) expression is limited to gastric parietal cells and wounded or pathological tissue rather than normal brain tissue, and although it has been identified as an oncogene in estrogen receptor‑positive breast cancer and non‑small cell lung cancer, its function in cancer is poorly understood. The present study aimed to investigate the association of EPN3 expr...

Authors: Yao R, Wang Y, Han D, Ma Y, Ma M, Zhao Y, Tan J, Lu J, Xu G, Li X Abstract Accumulating evidence has revealed that the methylation of lysines on nonhistones by histone lysine methyltransferases (HMTs) is crucial for regulating tumo-rigenesis and metastasis. However, whether the methy-lation of lysines on HMT complex components occurs and has functions in cancer progression is less well understood. WD repeat domain 5 (WDR5) is a core component of an HMT complex named mixed lineage leukemia (MLL)/Suppressor of Variegation, Enhancer of Zeste, and Trithorax 1 (SET1). In the present study, it was repo...

Authors: Huang XJ, Xia Y, He GF, Zheng LL, Cai YP, Yin Y, Wu Q Abstract Metastasis‑associated lung adenocarcinoma transcript 1 (MALAT1) is a long non‑coding RNA (lncRNA) that has an oncogenic role in some types of cancers, uncluding breast cancer (BC). To investigate the role of MALAT1 in human BC progression, we detected MALAT1 expression levels based on tissue samples from 20 BC cases and 20 healthy controls and found MALAT1 expression levels to be significantly high (P

Circadian clock gene Per2 downregulation in non‑small cell lung cancer is associated with tumour progression and metastasis. Oncol Rep. 2018 Sep 13;: Authors: Xiang R, Cui Y, Wang Y, Xie T, Yang X, Wang Z, Li J, Li Q Abstract Period2 (Per2) is a key circadian clock gene, and its deregulation contributes to tumour development, including breast cancer. However, the biological function and clinicopathological significance of Per2 in non‑small cell lung cancer (NSCLC) remain unclear. The present study aimed to explore the role of Per2 and its relative clinical significance in NSCLC. To analyse Per2 exp...

The role of 17β‑estradiol‑induced upregulation of Piwi‑like 4 in modulating gene expression and motility in breast cancer cells. Oncol Rep. 2018 Aug 31;: Authors: Heng ZSL, Lee JY, Subhramanyam CS, Wang C, Thanga LZ, Hu Q Abstract A majority of breast cancer cases are positive for the estrogen receptor (ER), which means that they can respond to the estrogen hormone to achieve growth. Hence, the ER signaling pathway has been extensively targeted in pharmaceutical research and development in order to suppress tumor growth. However, prevalent hormone therapy and targeted therapy often beco...

This study suggests that metabolites of phthalate such as MEHHP, MECPP, MEOHP and Σ4MEHP may increase the intron 1 methylation level to elevate ADAM33 gene expression and have a protective effect on reducing the risk of breast cancer. PMID: 30226539 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

ConclusionIn conclusion, PABC is rarely detected by mammography and diagnosis is highly dependent on detection during self-breast exam. Women who are or recently were pregnant should be encouraged to perform regular self-breast exams to report any changes for further evaluation. Patient and clinician education regarding risk and realities of PABC is essential.

This study could significantly change the way we approach breast cancer screening." MRI is much more sensitive than mammography, "  saidGreg Karczmar, PhD, professor of radiology at the University of Chicago. " It can find invasive breast cancers sooner than mammograms and it can rule out abnormalities that appear suspicious on a mammogram. Unfortunately, MRI is much too expensive for routine screening. "
