GSE121657 MicroRNA expression data from an epithelial-mesenchymal transition (EMT) model of triple negative breast cancer (TNBC).

Contributors : Chen K Wong ; Sam ThiagalingamSeries Type : Non-coding RNA profiling by arrayOrganism : Homo sapiens ; synthetic constructTriple-negative breast cancer (TNBC) is the most aggressive form of breast cancer due to lack of effective targeted therapies. Here, we report that the expression of miR-4417 is suppressed during the progression of TNBC cells from non-malignant to the malignant stage. miR-4417 is localized to chromosome 1p36, a region with high loss of heterozygosity in multiple cancers, and its biogenesis is DICER-dependent. Low expression of miR-4417 is significantly associated with worse prognosis in TNBC patients, while overexpression of miR-4417 is sufficient to inhibit migration and tumorigenecity of TNBC cells in vitro. Overall, our findings suggest that miR-4417 exerts a tumor suppressive effect and thereby could serve as a prognostic biomarker and therapeutic tool against TNBC.We used microarrays to profile the global miRNA changes during EMT to identify putative tumor suppressors and prognostic biomarkers for TNBC.

Batrakova, Alexander V. KabanovAbstractThe potency of polymeric micelle-based doxorubicin, SP1049C, against cancer stem cells (CSCs) in triple negative breast cancer (TNBC) is evaluated. CSCs with high epithelial specific antigen (ESA), high CD44 and low CD24 expression levels were derived from the TNBC cancer cells, MDA-MB-231 and MDA-MB-468. These CSCs were resistant to free doxorubicin (Dox) and displayed increased colony formation, migra...

Conclusion: Our findings highlight an innovative 4T1- and Py230-based intraductal mouse model for TNBC with a different tumor outgrowth and associated tumor microenvironment. These differential models may broadly represent the clinically observed TNBC diversity and together provide a powerful tool to evaluate therapeutics.

AbstractThe risk of radiotherapy-induced malignancies (RIMs) is a concern when treating Li –Fraumeni syndrome (LFS) or Li–Fraumeni Like (LFL) patients. However, the type ofTP53 pathogenic germline variant may possibly influence this risk.TP53 p.R337H mutation is particularly prevalent in Brazil. We aimed to evaluate the outcomes of patients with pathogenicTP53 variants treated for localized breast cancer in a Brazilian cohort. We evaluated retrospectively a cohort of patients with germlineTP53 pathogenic variants treated for localized breast cancer between December 1999 and October 2017. All patients were follo...

SDC1 has different effects in various types of cancers. On the one hand, reduced expression of SDC1 can leads to advantage stages of some cancers, such as gastric and colorectal cancer. On the other hand, SDC1 overexpression can also promote the growth and proliferation of cancer cells in pancreatic and breast cancer. Howe...

In this study, we report a novel 3D printed microfluidic device functionalized with anti-EpCAM (epithelial cell adhesion molecule) antibodies to isolate CTCs from human blood samples. A 3D printing technology was utilized with specially designed interior structures to fabricate a microfluidic device with high surface area and fluid flow manipulation, increasing the capture efficiency of tumor cells. These devices with the optimal flow rate (1 mL/h) and channel length (2 cm) were demonstrated to test three kinds of EpCAM positive cancer cell lines (MCF-7 breast cancer, SW480 colon cancer, and PC3 prostate cancer), and o...

CONCLUSION: Taken together, our results indicate that increased expression of MTFR2 is associated with tumour progression in breast cancer cells through switching glucose metabolism from OXPHS to glycolysis in a HIF1α- and HIF2α-dependent manner. MATERIALS AND METHODS: We obtained data from The Cancer Genome Atlas (TCGA) and the Gene Expression Omnibus (GEO) to analyse MTFR2 expression in BC. The prognostic value of MTFR2 expression was assessed using the Kaplan-Meier method. The biological influence of MTFR2 on BC cell lines was studied using proliferation, Transwell migration, invasion and mitochondrial ...

In this study, we summarized how lncRNA has dual effects in BC metastasis by regulating invasion, migration, and distant metastasis of BC cells. We also emphasize that lncRNA has crucial regulatory effects in the stemness and angiogenesis of BC. Clinically, some lncRNAs can regulate chemotherapy sensitivity in BC patients and may function as novel biomarkers to diagnose or predict prognosis for BC patients. The exact impact on clinical relevance deserves further study. This review can be an approach to understanding the dual effects of lncRNAs in BC, thereby linking lncRNAs to quasi-personalized treatment in the future.

AbstractApproximately 75% of all breast cancers express the nuclear hormone receptor estrogen receptor α (ERα). However, the majority of mammary tumors from genetically engineered mouse models (GEMMs) are ERα-negative. To model ERα-positive breast cancer in mice, we exogenously introduced expression of mouse and human ERα in an existing GEMM of p53-deficient breast cancer. After initial ERα exp ression during mammary gland development, expression was reduced or lost in adult glands and p53-deficient mammary tumors. Chromatin immunoprecipitation (ChIP)-sequencing analysis of primary mouse...

In this study, 13 Panaxadiol (PD) derivatives were synthesized via reactions with aromatic compounds and amino acids. Following this, the cytotoxicity of these compounds was evaluated against four cancer cell lines (human hepatoma cell HepG-2, human lung cancer cell A549, human breast cancer cell MCF-7, and human colon cancer cell HCT-116) and one normal cell line (human gastric epithelial cell line-GES- 1). The results showed that Compounds 3, 12, and 13 showed significant inhibition of cellular proliferation against cancer cells compared with PD, and Compound 12 had the lowest IC50 value for A549 (IC50 = 18.91 ± 1...
