SILAC identifies LAD1 as a filamin-binding regulator of actin dynamics in response to EGF and a marker of aggressive breast tumors
Mutations mimicking growth factor–induced proliferation and motility characterize aggressive subtypes of mammary tumors. To unravel currently unknown players in these processes, we performed phosphoproteomic analysis on untransformed mammary epithelial cells (MCF10A) that were stimulated in culture with epidermal growth factor (EGF). We identified ladinin-1 (LAD1), a largely uncharacterized protein to date, as a phosphorylation-regulated mediator of the EGF-to-ERK pathway. Further experiments revealed that LAD1 mediated the proliferation and migration of mammary cells. LAD1 was transcriptionally induced, phosphorylat...

Fish-Based Omega-3s Better Than Plant-Based For Prevention Of Breast Cancer
BOSTON (CBS) – Eating a diet rich in omega-3 fatty acids may help reduce the risk of breast cancer in women, but does the source of those good fats matter? Researchers at the University of Guelph, ON, Canada say, “Yes.” They looked at mice predisposed to develop an aggressive type of breast cancer and found that a diet rich in fish-based omega-3 fatty acids was eight times more effective at preventing breast tumor growth than a diet rich in plant-based omega-3s. Plant-based omega-3 fatty acids are found in soy, canola oil, walnuts, and flaxseed. Fish-based omega-3s are found in salmon, tuna, trout and oth...
