Ras-induced EpCAM and several other membrane proteins.

A. Microarray data (GSE12777) for 51 breast cancer cell line was analyzed using Gene-E software. E-cadherin correlated 121 genes are enriched in first step followed by EpCAM close (correlated). These genes are presented in normal and Ras-transduced cells (right panel). B-C. Two independent microarray data sets from MCF10A and Ras-transduced…

PRR15 deficiency facilitates malignant progression by mediating PI3K/Akt signaling and predicts clinical prognosis in triple-negative rather than non-triple-negative breast cancer

Cell culture and reagents Non-cancerous mammary epithelium cell (MCF10A), breast cancer cells including luminal (MCF7, MDA-MB-361, T47D, and BT474), HER2amp (SKBR3), and triple-negative (MDA-MB-231, CAL51, BT20, and MDA-MB-468) subtypes, as well as human embryonic kidney 293T (HEK-293T) cells, were purchased from the American Type Culture Collection (Manassas, VA, USA). MDA-MB-231,…

Chromosomal instability as central hallmark of Breast Cancer

Introduction In recent years, CIN has gained great importance due to its implications for both, the diagnosis and prognosis of cancer. Recent studies have suggested that both CIN and clonal heterogeneity, influence cancer progression, aggressiveness, prognosis, and response to therapy.1–4 The above because both, CIN and clonal heterogeneity, lead to…

ANKLE1 cleaves mitochondrial DNA and contributes to cancer risk by promoting apoptosis resistance and metabolic dysregulation

ANKLE1 is the causal gene for breast and ovarian cancer risk in the chr19p13.1 region Expression quantitative trait loci (eQTL) data have revolutionized how geneticists identify candidate causal genes from genome-wide association study (GWAS) loci. We integrated the most recent meta-analysis of breast cancer GWAS10 and Genotype-Tissue Expression (GTEx) project…

MYO10 drives genomic instability and inflammation in cancer

INTRODUCTION Genomic instability often refers to the existence of a variety of DNA alterations, ranging from single nucleotide changes (such as base substitution, deletion, and insertion) to chromosomal rearrangements (e.g., gain or loss of a segment or the whole chromosome) (1). Loss of genome stability can lead to early onset…
