Adriamycin (ADR) induces the over-expression of P-glycoprotein (P-gp) and multiple drug resistance in breast cancer cells. However, the biochemical process and underlying mechanisms are not clear. Our previous study revealed that ADR increased reactive oxygen species (ROS) generation and decreased glutathione (GSH) biosynthesis, while N-acetylcysteine, the ROS scavenger, reversed the over-expression of P-gp. The present study showed that ADR inhibited the influx of cystine (the source material of GSH) and the activity of the SLC7A11 transporter (in charge of cystine uptake) in MCF-7 cells...

BACKGROUND: The pathogenesis of human basal-like breast cancer (BLBC) is not well understood and patients with BLBC have a poor prognosis. Expression of the epidermal growth factor receptor (EGFR) and nuclear factor-κB (NF-κB) is well-known to be upregulated in BLBC. The forkhead box C1 (FOXC1) transcription factor, an important prognostic biomarker specific for BLBC, has been shown to be induced by EGF and is critical for EGF effects in breast cancer cells. How FOXC1 is transcriptionally activated in BLBC is not clear...

Renal cell carcinoma (RCC) is a highly prevalent disease worldwide with many cases being metastasised to various organs during the time of initial presentation. Metastatic RCC to the breast is a rare entity and can mimic primary breast carcinoma. In this article, we present a 63-year-old Caucasian woman presented with a breast mass that was detected by screening mammography and found to have a biopsy proven grade-II clear RCC in the breast tissue. Despite the high incidence and prevalence of primary breast cancer, metastasis from extramammary should be suspected in patients with a prior history of other cancers...

Given the ever-present demand for improved PET radiotracer in oncology imaging, we have synthesized 2-(3,4-dimethoxyphenyl)-6-(2-[(18)F]fluoroethoxy)benzothiazole ([(18)F]FEDBT), a fluorine-18-containing fluoroethylated benzothiazole to explore its utility as a PET imaging tracer. [(18)F]FEDBT was prepared via kryptofix-mediated nucleophilic substitution of the tosyl group precursor. Fractionated ethanol-based solid-phase (SPE cartridge-based) purification afforded [(18)F]FEDBT in 60% radiochemical yield (EOB), with radiochemical purity in excess of 98% and the specific activity was 35GBq/μmol...

Purpose: Histone deacetylase inhibitors (HDACi) are epigenome-targeting small molecules approved for the treatment of cutaneous T cell lymphoma and multiple myeloma. They have also demonstrated clinical activity in AML, non-small cell lung cancer and estrogen receptor-positive breast cancer, and trials are underway assessing their activity in combination regimens including immunotherpy.  However, there is currently no clear strategy to reliably predict HDACi sensitivity. <p>In colon cancer cells, apoptotic sensitivity to HDACi is associated with transcriptional induction of multiple immediate-early (IE) genes...

ETHNOPHARMACOLOGICAL RELEVANCE: The discovery of many tissue-specific cancer stem cells (CSCs) continues to attract scientific attention. These CSCs are considered to be associated with chemo- and radio-resistance, and consequently, failure of conventional anticancer therapies. The recent demonstration of several microRNAs as enhancers of tumorigenicity via modulation of epithelial-mesenchymal transition and cancer stemness, makes them putative novel therapeutic target in oncology. Antrodia cinnamomea is a Chinese traditional medicine with several biological functions including anti-inflammation, antioxidant, and cancer prevention...

Rainer H Straub, Maurizio Cutolo
Links between the central nervous stress system and peripheral immune cells in lymphoid organs have been detailed through 50 years of intensive research. The brain can interfere with the immune system, where chronic psychological stress inhibits many functions of the immune system. On the other hand, chronic peripheral inflammation-whether mild (during aging and psychological stress) or severe (chronic inflammatory diseases)-clearly interferes with brain function, leading to disease sequelae like fatigue but also to overt psychiatric illness...

Nectin-4 is well known as a junction protein. Recent reports have implicated it in cancer, but there has been little exploration of its functional significance in metastasis and cancer stem cells. Here, using the breast cancer metastasis model system, we report Nectin-4 is a marker for breast cancer stem cells (BCSCs) and provide experimental evidence suggesting that it utilizes WNT/β-Catenin signaling via Pi3k/Akt axis for self renewal of BCSCs. In vitro, in vivo, ex vivo and clinical pathological data showed upregulated Nectin-4 in breast cancer metastasis and WNT/β-Catenin signaling...

Recent studies have provided clear evidence that some types of human cancer cells expressed Forkhead Box Protein 3 (FOXP3). However, the presence and role of FOXP3 in breast cancer are still contradictory up to now. In this study, we detected the expression of FOXP3 protein by immunohistochemistry in 123 cases of breast invasive ductal carcinoma. It exhibited that the subcellular localization of FOXP3 expression in breast cancer cells is heterogeneous. In nucleus, FOXP3 expression ratio was 47.97% (59/123) and the nuclear FOXP3 expression was significantly associated with lower Ki67 index (P=0...

Matrix metalloproteinases (MMPs) are a family of zinc endopeptidases that cleave nearly all components of the extracellular matrix as well as many other soluble and cell-associated proteins. MMPs have been implicated in normal physiological processes, including development, and in the acquisition and progression of the malignant phenotype. Disappointing results from a series of clinical trials testing small molecule, broad spectrum MMP inhibitors as cancer therapeutics led to a re-evaluation of how MMPs function in the tumor microenvironment, and ongoing research continues to reveal that these proteins play complex roles in cancer development and progression...

Cancer remains a leading cause of mortality worldwide, therefore food products are being investigated for potential prevention or treatment strategies. The ingredient, barley grass extract (Hordeum vulgare L.; Bex) is used to prevent or ameliorate various types of disease. In cancer, Bex has been revealed to inhibit tumor growth. However, its effect on cancer cells is yet to be clearly defined. In the present study, the effect of Bex on cancer cell growth was investigated. Bex inhibited the viabilities of breast and prostate cancer cells according to the results of MTT assays...

Loss of CRY2 confers aggressive phenotypes to breast cancer. However, the mechanism of its downregulation and its prognostic value in breast cancer are still not clear. Our data mining in TCGA breast cancer cohort (TCGA-BRCA) showed that the luminal A subtype of breast cancer had the highest CRY2 expression, while the basal-like subtype had the lowest CRY2 expression. The ER+ group had significantly higher CRY2 expression than the ER- group. Demethylation treatment using 5-AZA-dC significantly restored CRY2 expression in MDA-MB-231 and BT549 cells...

BACKGROUND AND AIMS: Evidence suggests that quantity and quality of dietary polyunsaturated fatty acids (PUFAs) play a role in the development of cancer. However, the mechanisms involved in this interaction(s) are not clear. Endocannabinoids are lipid metabolites known to have growth modulatory actions. We studied the effect of supplementation with PUFAs ω-6 and ω-3 (essential fatty acids, EFAs), saturated and monounsaturated fatty acids (non-EFAs) on the growth of tumor cells and modifications in their endocannabinoid content...

The recent demonstration of modest single-agent activity of programmed death-ligand 1 (PD-L1) and programmed death receptor-1 (PD-1) antibodies in patients with breast cancer has generated hope that breast cancer can be made amenable to immunotherapy. Depending on the subtype of breast cancer, it is now clear in both primary and metastatic disease that the extent of tumor-infiltrating T cells is not only prognostic for survival but predictive of response to nonimmune, standard therapies. Despite these findings, immune cytolytic activity in spontaneous breast tumors, the burden of nonsynonymous tumor mutations, and the predicted load of neoepitopes-factors linked to response to checkpoint blockade in other malignancies-are all relatively modest in breast cancer compared with melanoma or lung cancer...

Urokinase-type plasminogen activator (uPA) has been validated as a predictive or prognostic biomarker protein, and mesupron is considered the first-in-class anticancer agent to inhibit uPA activity in human breast cancer. In the present study, we showed that the synergism between mesupron and auranofin, a thioredoxin reductase inhibitor, for inducing of apoptosis in MCF-7 human breast cancer cells. Our results demonstrated that mesupron and auranofin significantly lead to inhibition of the cancer cells proliferation; cell cycle arrest at the G1/S phase of the cell cycle, and apoptosis as indicated by caspase 3 activation, poly(ADP-ribose) polymerase cleavage, and annexin V staining...

The goal of breast-conserving surgery is to completely remove all of the cancer. Currently, no intraoperative tools can microscopically analyze the entire lumpectomy specimen, which results in 20 to 60% of patients undergoing second surgeries to achieve clear margins. To address this critical need, we have laid the foundation for the development of a device that could allow accurate intraoperative margin assessment. We demonstrate that by taking advantage of the intrinsic optical contrast of breast tissue, photoacoustic microscopy (PAM) can achieve multilayered histology-like imaging of the tissue surface...

BACKGROUND: Recent genome-wide profiling by sequencing and distinctive chromatin signatures has identified thousands of long non-coding RNA (lncRNA) species (>200 nt). LncRNAs have emerged as important regulators of gene expression, involving in both developmental and pathological processes. While altered expression of lncRNAs has been observed in breast cancer development, their roles in breast cancer progression and metastasis are still poorly understood. METHODS: To identify novel breast cancer-associated lncRNA candidates, we employed a high-density SNP array-based approach to uncover intergenic lncRNA genes that are aberrantly expressed in breast cancer...

This study addresses first the role of human 17beta-hydroxysteroid dehydrogenase type 1 (17β-HSD1) in breast cancer (BC). The enzyme has a high estrone-activating activity that is subject to strong substrate inhibition as shown by enzyme kinetics at the molecular level. We used BC cells to verify this phenomenon in living cells: estrone concentration increase did reduce the reaction with 0.025 to 4μM substrate. Moreover, 5α-dihydrotestosterone (DHT) demonstrated some inhibition of estrogen activation at both the molecular and cellular level...

Breast cancer is a serious threat to women's physical and psychological health. Long non-coding RNA CAMTA1 (LncCAMTA1)was believed to be related with tumor progression, but its role in breast cancer is not clear. Human breast cancer cell line MDA-MB-231 was used to investigate effect of LncCAMTA1 on cell viability, migration/invasion, and apoptosis. Expression of LncCAMTA1, miR-20b and VEGF in MDA-MB-231were measured after corresponding transfections. Binding effects between LncCAMTA1 and miR-20b, miR-20b and VEGF 3'UTR were measured...
