Expression of LXR ‑β, ABCA1 and ABCG1 in human triple‑negative breast cancer tissues.

Expression of LXR‑β, ABCA1 and ABCG1 in human triple‑negative breast cancer tissues. Oncol Rep. 2019 Aug 14;: Authors: Pan H, Zheng Y, Pan Q, Chen H, Chen F, Wu J, Di D Abstract Previous studies have reported that liver X receptor (LXR), ATP‑binding cassette sub‑family G number 1 (ABCG1) and ATP‑binding cassette transporter number 1 (ABCA1), which are associated with cholesterol metabolism, may be associated with the development and progression of breast cancer. The expression levels of LXR‑β, ABCA1 and ABCG1 in triple‑negative breast cancer (TNBC) tissues and in non‑cancerous mammary tissues were observed by immunohistochemistry, quantum dot‑based immunohistochemistry, western blot analysis and reverse transcription‑quantitative polymerase chain reaction. The present study identified that the expression of ABCA1 in TNBC tissues was higher than that in non‑cancerous mammary tissues. A high expression of ABCA1 in the TNBC tissues was significantly associated with the histological grade. However, no significant differences were identified between the expression levels of LXR‑β and ABCG1 in the TNBC tissues compared with the non‑cancerous mammary tissues. Therefore, the findings of this study suggest that ABCA1 is a specific marker for TNBC. PMID: 31432185 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

Objective: Breast cancer patients have a higher mortality risk of cardiovascular disease (CVD) than women from the general population. CVD risk may increase significantly in postmenopausal women with early-stage breast cancer. The aim of this study was to evaluate risk factors for CVD in postmenopausal breast cancer survivors. Methods: In this cross-sectional study, 96 postmenopausal breast cancer survivors were compared with 192 postmenopausal women. The main group included women with amenorrhea>12 months, aged ≥45 years, with breast cancer, and without established CVD. The control group fulfilled the same crit...

Conclusion: Future studies are needed to assess the effect of statins in risk reduction and to identify other drugs with chemopreventive potential against CBC. Eventually, efforts must be directed towards identifying those breast cancer patients likely to benefit most from specific preventive therapies. PMID: 31393200 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

Abstract Emerging evidence suggests that circular RNAs (circRNAs) are linked to the development and progression of human cancers. Nevertheless, their contribution to breast cancer (BC) is still largely unknown. In the current study, we screened and identified a novel circRNA, circ-UBE2D2, which was highly expressed in BC cell lines and tissues and was closely related to aggressive clinical features and dismal prognosis. Small interfering RNA (siRNA)-mediated circ-UBE2D2 silencing notably inhibited the proliferation, migration and invasion of BC cells, whereas circ-UBE2D2 overexpression displayed opposite effects. ...

The mevalonate pathway (also known as the cholesterol biosynthesis pathway) plays a crucial metabolic role in normal cell function as well as in the pathological environment. It leads to the synthesis of sterol and non-sterol isoprenoid biomolecules which subserve a variety of cellular functions. It is known to be deregulated in many disease processes. Statins and bisphosphonates are prominent inhibitors of the mevalonate pathway. They inhibit cell proliferation and activate apoptotic signalling and suppress tumour growth. Statins subdue metastatic spread of tumours by virtue of their ability to suppress invasion and angio...

Vascular calcification is an important pathogenic process in atherosclerosis (AS); however, its immediate cause is unknown. Our previous study demonstrated that carbonic anhydrase 1 (CA1) stimulates ossification and calcification in ankylosing spondylitis and breast cancer. The current study investigated whether CA1 plays an important role in AS calcification and whether the CA inhibitor methazolamide (MTZ) has a therapeutic effect on AS. We successfully established an AS model by administration of a high-fat diet to ApoE-/- mice. The treated animals had significantly increased serum levels of high-density lipoprotein chol...
